We all have a story - a loved one, a friend, or even ourselves - who has been touched by cancer. Cancer affects millions of people worldwide, impacting not only those who are diagnosed but also their loved ones. The Beat Cancer Foundation (BCF) works relentlessly to revolutionize cancer treatment and research by promoting non-toxic options, repurposed drugs, and integrated treatments. We aim to strengthen the immune system and specifically target cancer cells to minimize adverse side effects.
By leveraging our collective resources, we strive to amplify public awareness about cancer prevention. We shed light on the progress made in non-toxic treatment alternatives, which prioritize enhancing the immune system. BCF is committed to reducing the side effects of treatments, improving patients' overall quality of life, and transforming the landscape of cancer research and treatment.
We envisage a future where cancer patients can lead a better quality of life while combating the disease. Our mission is to empower those affected by cancer to make informed decisions. We guide them on their journey to recovery and complete remission, thereby increasing their chances of conquering this disease.
Your support can help us bring this vision to life. By supporting us, you contribute to the development of a new collaborative model that empowers the public and metamorphoses the cancer treatment landscape.
Confronting the Goliath: The Cancer Conundrum
Cancer, a relentless foe, remains the second leading cause of death in the United States, underscoring the urgency and scale of our mission. Despite the colossal allocation of nearly a trillion dollars towards research and treatment, the devastating disease continues to claim over 600,000 American lives each year. The global economic fallout is also staggering, projected to hit $25.2 trillion in international dollars from 2020 to 2050, calculated at 2017 constant prices.
Our contemporary western medicine is seemingly caught in the gravitational pull of the pharmaceutical industry. The tenets of this medical model train doctors to match symptoms with prescriptions, and hospitals engage in intricate negotiations with insurance companies around drug costs. The relentless pursuit to discover the next groundbreaking drug continues unabated.
However, the romanticized heroes of healing have morphed over time. Today's healers are predominantly shaped, funded, and held accountable by the pharmaceutical industry. This modern-day medical syndicate, in the name of profits, has woven a web of deception that, if left unchecked, will persistently mislead us.
Between 2014 and 2019, the FDA gave a nod to nearly 150 new anticancer drugs. While this might initially sound promising, cancer patients might want to quell their enthusiasm. Unfortunately, nearly 1 in 5 of these approvals were based on clinical trials that fell short of proving the efficacy of the drugs.
A recent study published in JAMA Oncology, assessing 143 cancer drugs approved by the FDA between 2013 and 2018, sheds more light on this unsettling situation. The analysts discovered that 17% of the approvals leveraged "suboptimal control arms" and didn't demonstrate any advantage over conventional therapies. In essence, a sizable portion of the anticancer drugs that received the FDA's stamp of approval failed to show tangible benefits for patients.
This alarming revelation suggests that the FDA is repeatedly sanctioning new anticancer drugs that may not surpass the effectiveness of existing, standard drugs. Yet, every time a new drug receives approval, the corporate stock soars, and the financial wheels keep turning. As long as the new drug outperforms the control arm, it swiftly finds its way to the market.
At BCF, we are committed to bridging this formidable abyss, offering invaluable assistance to those embarking on their healing journey. We stand ready to challenge the status quo, advocate for real progress, and ensure that the battle against cancer prioritizes patients over profits.
BCF is a non-profit organization committed to empowering individuals affected by cancer. Born out of the collective experiences of certified alternative cancer and holistic practitioners, BCF stands as a stalwart advocate for cancer patients, their families, and caregivers. Our shared mission is to develop a collaborative model for cancer research and treatment information that encourages public support for non-toxic treatment options and preventative measures.
Our foundation is dedicated to providing scientifically-backed information on cancer treatments, alternative therapies, repurposed drugs, and nutrition plans suitable for those affected. We help patients make informed decisions and enhance their chances of overcoming cancer using non-toxic treatment options.
As an organization, we aspire to be the leading authority on holistic, alternative, and integrative cancer therapies and prevention. Empowering cancer patients and their families with scientific educational resources is at the heart of our mission. These resources can guide them towards complete remission and an improved quality of life.
Traditional cancer treatments, including surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, are not without their limitations. While they can effectively reduce tumor size, they can also compromise immune function, damage healthy cells, and trigger side effects ranging from anemia to depression.
Conversely, an integrative approach—blending special diets, repurposed drugs, alternative treatments, and complementary therapies—offers a comprehensive and valuable tool for managing cancer. This holistic focus addresses the whole person, not just the disease, promoting overall health and well-being.
At BCF, we strongly believe that conscious lifestyle choices and environmental decisions can prevent 90-95% of all cancer cases. Our education program emphasizes these factors and provides resources to encourage healthier choices and cancer-preventive habits.
Your support for BCF is not just about funding—it's about hope. It's about empowering cancer patients and survivors to triumph over their disease. We're committed to providing knowledge and resources for individuals to make informed decisions about their health. Your support helps us build a world where cancer patients and their families are equipped with the necessary information to navigate their journey toward recovery, and ultimately, a cancer-free life.
