Let’s come together to make the cancer cure a reality

Hope lies in dreams, in imagination and in the courage of those who dare to make dreams into reality. -Jonas Salk, inventor of the first Polio vaccine.

Cancer is non-partisan.

It doesn’t care whether you’re pro-life or pro-choice; it doesn’t care what you think about tax rates; and it certainly doesn’t care whom you vote for.

That’s why it strikes me as odd that some people seem to have an issue with my attendance at an upcoming educational conference hosted by a non-profit group that is working on the world’s most promising cancer treatment.

It’s pretty incredible that some people are so blinded by their political ideology that they can’t even see how small and petty they’ve become. Here’s a simple formula to help them: Life > Voting records. Every time; no exceptions. In fact, there is probably not a political issue that Keith Olbermann or Bill Maher and I see eye-to-eye on, but if either of them were supporting research related to cancer or ALS or diabetes or Alzheimer’s—or any other life-altering disease—I would be happy to stand by their side.

I learned a long time ago that it’s not worth trying to change the people who think this way. It’s better to leave the small problems to the small-minded and instead focus on our dreams. Like, for example, curing cancer.

With that in mind, I’d like to introduce you to the group that is hosting me at this conference, a group that, I believe (even though they will never say it themselves), is trying to cure cancer, not just treat it.

It all started when John Kanzius, a former radio engineer, was diagnosed with leukemia in 2002. He began to receive treatment, including chemotherapy, and was shocked by its brutality. The hair loss, the fatigue, the nausea, the crippling numbness and nerve damage.

He was also shocked by the faces of the children around him. Kids of all ages bravely receiving treatment for a disease they never asked for. Bald heads, pale faces—hope and courage overcome by poison infused into tiny veins.

Week after week John Kanzius took all of this in and thought to himself: There has got to be a better way.

But there wasn’t.

Chemotherapy, as many cancer patients already know, is a double-edged sword. These toxic chemicals are the only thing keeping many people alive, yet they are also the only thing making them wish they were dead. The irony of most cancers, especially at their early stages, is that the disease itself often causes people no pain or quality of life issues. Instead, it’s the poison we use to treat them that makes most patients miserable.

There has got to be a better way.

John Kanzius didn’t know anything about cancer. Or chemotherapy. Or medical research. But he did know about something else: radio waves. He remembered back to the first time he’d climbed a radio tower. His companion had warned him to take off his watch and leave his keys in the car. Why? Because radio waves, while harmless to the human body, would heat metal almost instantly.

Now, years later, sitting in a chemo chair with an IV dripping poison into his veins, Kanzius thought back to that strange quirk of nature. If radio waves could heat metal while leaving the rest of the body untouched, then perhaps they could also kill malignant cells while leaving the healthy ones untouched.

And so he began to experiment. He set up a transmitter in his garage using a couple of his wife’s pie pans, stuck a metal probe into a raw hotdog, and blasted it with radio waves. The metal probe got warm; hot enough to start to cook the hotdog next to it, while the remainder stayed cold.

A big idea was born. A better way.

As John’s disease progressed he eventually began to receive care at M.D. Anderson in Houston, one of the world’s premier cancer centers. He explained his radio wave concept to his oncologist, who in turn introduced him to Dr. Steven Curley, who was, well, skeptical. But the more John talked about the science behind his idea, the more Dr. Curley came to believe that the logic was sound. The doctor eventually made a solemn promise to John: no matter what happened, he would see the idea through to human trials.

John Kanzius died in 2009, but his dream never has.

Today, 23 doctors, researchers and chemists staff a lab dedicated to research of the Kanzius Noninvasive Radiowave Cancer Treatment at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. Five more are at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. It’s cutting edge technology, and it’s all funded by a tiny little non-profit based in Erie, Pennsylvania called the Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation (KCRF).

Three new radio wave generating machines have recently been delivered to Dr. Curley’s team. These are far more advanced that the earlier versions and have tables that can support up to 800 pounds—more than enough for human trials. The early test results, using these machines and targeted nanoparticles, are beyond promising, but there is still a long way to go. And they need our help.

If you believe that real innovation (Dr. Curley won a Tribeca Film Festival Disruptive Innovation Award earlier this year) should be encouraged, then I ask you to join me in helping to push this technology forward. You can do that by making a donation to the Kanzius Foundation, or, even better, by joining me for lunch at their first national FACES conference in Erie, PA on Saturday, October 27. Dr. Curley, along with other Kanzius researchers, will also be there and will provide the latest research updates.

It’s easy to sit back and complain about chemotherapy, about how cancer has robbed so many of their hopes and dreams, about how it’s left so many children without parents and parents without children.

It’s a lot harder to do something to change all that.

I don’t know if radio waves are the answer. I don’t know if they’ll try this on humans one day and realize that it’s a complete failure. But I do know two things: First, if this idea fails, someone will pick up the pieces, make a slight course correction, and take the next big step. And second, I want to be a part of it. I want to help make cancer history.


The Kanzius Cancer Research Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

    Thank you for your support of Cancer research that is going on now.  They are making significan breakthroughs almost every day now.  I currently have folicullar and large B cell  Lymphoma I am scheduled to undergo a bone marrow translplant in jan. and hopefully if I survive it it will be a complete cure.  So many people I meet everday do not have that option. 
    Thanks again for all your support..

       If you haven’t already, please check out the Gerson Therapy.  There are two documentaries on Netflix about it. They are called The Gerson Miracle and Dying to have known.

    • http://FarTooMuch.Info JRuss

      The Gerson Therapy cures your immune system by feeding it the essential nutrients it needs to be healthy and by detoxifying your body.  A healthy immune system can take care of the cancer.  There are other ways to cure your immune system and they also work.  All the immune system cures make a healthy body and are obviously non-toxic.   http://Opinion.FarTooMuch.Info/Cancer.htm

    I don’t see how this is going to help. It seems like it can only affect masses large enough to be visible, and at best is only more comfortable than surgical removal. A real cure has to be based on stopping the process that initiates cell deviation.

    Dr. Burzynski has been curing cancer since the 70’s.  The FDA tried to stop him by taking him to court many times.  There was a movie about it on the Discovery channel. You can see the movie at Burzynskimovie.com.
    Also, check out http://www.naturalnews.com  they have several doctors that cure cance naturally.

    Somewhere I read about a treatment that seems similar to this, that supposedly works, but I have not heard more of it.  It targets a specific cancer cell–every cell in the body, anywhere–and only that cancer cell, without hurting any other type of cell. It works on any type of cancer, virus, or bacteria. Its function is similar to a “noise cancelling” radio system in an upscale car. It is basically this:  Every TYPE of cell has its own unique energy wave pattern, including cancer cells. By identifying the energy wave pattern of that cell, and broadcasting it’s exact opposite into the body for 30 seconds, it cancels the energy wave of that type of cell, causing it to die. The opposite is also true:  If there is a type of cell that is weak, like the liver or in the immune system, they can identify its energy pattern and “feed” it its identical energy pattern, thus boosting its strength and strengthen the function of the targeted organ.  Is this the same concept?

    all the billions that has gone to the cancer insurstute has done nothing but keep all the doc. scientist an all peope involed in pay checks. they refuse to look for a cure only for a couple more days of life. a couple more day of life in pain. why is this happening cause they can say they are moving along. helping us live a month or 2 longer. 30 years ago they told my freind if only we could have caught it sooner. its the same story today they just told my wife oldest girl if only we could have caught it sooner. they tell you they can cotrol the pain its a dam lie.go for acure or get into some thing else we tired of you spending our money  not another penny till you change your reserce to find a cure. treating cancer with posoin an something that causes canser. are you crazy?

    Cancer can be considerablely reduced and/or prevent  through good eating habits and exercise. Similarly, it can be reduced and cured through the same good habits. For those who believe that cutting, burning and poison are the way to stop cancer, please don’t read The China Study, Eat To LIve or Forks Over Knives.

    I am currently dealing with prostate cancer and in doing research on which treatment type would work best for me, I came across some information on Dr. Mercola’s site suggesting lowering the body’s ph levels would cause our imune systems to kill the cancer cells.  This treatment type has been used in Italy and Brazil for several years, but gets almost no attention in the US because neither the Dr.s nor Big Pharm want us to know a cure is available for 89 cents a box at the local super-mart.  Lots of information on this is at:

    I’m using it along with EBRT and will see how things turn-out in a few more weeks.

    Mr. Beck, If you haven’t already,  look up the history of Dr, Royal Raymond Rife and his frequency energy generator.
    This is directly related to the concept of Mr. John Kanzius  Unfortunately Mr. Rife’s  invention came into existance around the same time as the AMA, FDA and, regardless of it’s success, it was not allowed to compete with the AMA monoply.  Many attempts have been made to replicate his invention, but none as successful as the original Rife Machine.

    According to the author of the article, both you and Ellen are “polarizing celebrities” but only you should not be allowed to help. Another hypocritical and child like liberal with an elitist attitude. And by the way unnamed author of GoErie.com, the globe stopped warming 16 years ago, well before Al Gore invented the internet and his global warming side business. Finally, there is more evidence for creation in the fossil record in the form of the sudden appearance of animals and man than there is for evolution. In fact, evolution is a theory, and something as simple as one “transitional fossil” showing the evolution of a new/different animal would really help to validate this pathetic theory.

    Good work Glenn! Unfortunately, most money donated to cancer research goes into finding drugs that will keep cancer patients alive a little longer so that the drug companies can make even greater profits. I believe that some cancers can be cured using natural substances and changing lifestyles. Diet is very important to keeping healthy and curing disease.

    Way to go Glenn!  The alternative cancer treatment world needs more voices like yours.  It appears others below have already written you about the original radio frequency treatment invented by Royal Rife in the 1930’s.  I know you love a great conspiracy theory and the story behind the original Rife Machine and how it was shutdown by Morris Fishbein, head of the American Medical Association, is enlightening and tragic.  I recommend you read chapter 14 of “Outsmart Your Cancer” by Tanya Harter Pierce to get a brief overview of the Rife Machine story.  If you have time to read the entire book, you will find that there are literally hundreds alternative cancer treatments that more effectively treat cancer than the ones currently pushed by the AMA and ACS (surgery, chemo, and radiation).  Another quick read I recommend is “Killing Cancer, Not People” by Robert G. Wright.  I wish everyone would educate themselves about options other than the conventional treatments before subjecting themselves to that horror.

    Many religious leaders urged bush not to go to war in iraq;  they were correct.  Many of same have said something must be done about gun deaths and so many having no access to medical care except on emergency basis.

    All these things are the fault of the GOP.  Intelligent peeps should be angry at the things done to this country by pubs.

    Casualties and losses
    Iraqi Security Forces (post-Saddam)
    Killed: 16,623[12]

    Killed: 4,805[14][15] (4,487 U.S.,[16] 179 UK,[17] 139 other)
    Missing/captured (U.S.): 8 (all rescued)[18]
    Wounded: 32,753+ (32,226 U.S.,[19] 315 UK, 212+ other[20])[21][22][23][24] Injured/diseased/other medical*: 51,139 (47,541 U.S.,[25] 3,598 UK)[21][23][24]
    None of this had to happen, all part of the cheney/bush reign of error.

    Medical bills prompt more than 60 percent of U.S. bankruptcies
    (if Obamacare had begun 10 years earlier, this wouldn’t have happened;  pubs
    stood in the way of US having same healthcare and fewer bankruptcies as other advanced
     June 05, 2009|By Theresa Tamkins
    This year, an estimated 1.5 million Americans will declare bankruptcy. Many people may chalk up that misfortune to overspending or a lavish lifestyle, but a new study suggests that more than 60 percent of people who go bankrupt are actually capsized by medical bills.
    Bankruptcies due to medical bills increased by nearly 50 percent in a six-year period, from 46 percent in 2001 to 62 percent in 2007, and most of those who filed for bankruptcy were middle-class, well-educated homeowners, according to a report that will be published in the August issue of The American Journal of Medicine.
    The United States leads the world’s richest nations in gun deaths — murders, suicides, and accidental deaths due to guns – according to a study published April 17, 1998 by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the International Journal of Epidemiology.

    The U.S. was first at 14.24 gun deaths per 100,000 people. Two other countries in the Americas came next. Brazil was second with 12.95, followed by Mexico with 12.69.

    Japan had the lowest rate, at 0.05 gun deaths per 100,000 (1 per 2 million people). The police in Japan actively raid homes of those suspected of having weapons.

    The 36 countries in the study were the richest in the World Bank’s 1994 World Development Report, having the highest GNP per capita income.

    The United States accounted for 45 percent of the 88,649 gun deaths reported in the study, the first comprehensive international scrutiny of gun-related deaths.

    The gun-related deaths per 100,000 people in 1994 by country were as follows:

    U.S.A. 14.24
    Brazil 12.95
    Mexico 12.69
    Estonia 12.26
    Argentina 8.93
    Northern Ireland 6.63
    Finland 6.46
    Switzerland 5.31
    France 5.15
    Canada 4.31

      There’s a flaw in your propaganda   Democrats also voted to go to war twice, including Hillary Clinton and Nancy Pelosi.

      We have a second amendment in our Constitution.

      No one is denied medical treatment in this country, legal or illegal.

      Under Obamacare, medical bankruptcies will continue but everyone will pay more for their treatments.  Obama lied.

      When you come up with a plan to prevent murders in this country, let everyone know.

      People will OFF themselves if they want to, taking guns away will not stop that from happening.

      You’re data is almost two decades old.

      Finland:  “To obtain a firearms license, an individual must declare a valid reason to own a gun (self defense is not considered “valid”)”

      Switzerland:  every male between the age of 20 and 34 is issued an automatic weapon which is kept in his home.  After age 34, you can elect to keep that weapon but the auto feature is removed.

      “In some 2001 statistics, it is noted that there are about 420,000 assault rifles (fully automatic, or “selective fire”) stored at private homes, mostly SIG SG 550models. Additionally, there are some 320,000 semi-auto rifles and military pistols exempted from military service in private possession, all selective-fire weapons having been converted to semi-automatic operation only. In addition, there are several hundred thousand other semi-automatic small arms classified as carbines. The total number of firearms in private homes is estimated minimally at 1.2 million to 3 million.”

      Canada: Firearms ownership went from criminal to mandatory registration and most recently Canadians are now allowed to keep riffles without registering them.  they are going from strict to lenient in their laws.

      France: There’s no real gun control except for their 8 category system.  Gun ownership begins at 16 years of age.

      Brazil:  Some 39,000 people died in 2003 due to gun-related injuries nationwide. In 2004, the number was 36,000. Although Brazil has 110 million fewer citizens than the United States, and more restrictive gun laws, there are 50% more gun deaths;

      Northern Ireland:  Northern Ireland, fully automatic (submachine-guns, etc.) and self-loading (semi-automatic) weapons of calibre larger than .22 rimfire are totally banned, pistols are limited to .22 calibre in short barrel, while calibres up to .357 magnum are allowed in long barrel pistols (of total length at least 60 cm). All other rifles and their ammunition are permitted with good reason, which may include target shooting, hunting, and historic and black powder weapons, but not self-defence. 


      So Dave, gun ownership or non ownership has anything to do with deaths.  Guns don’t kill people, people kill people.  Guns, knives, bricks, sharp sticks or whatever.  There’s always bad people out there.

      DAVE,  (my apologies for the tardy response)

      “Our civil liberties carry with them disturbances which our Nation must be willing to expect and accept, in order that our liberty continues to be protected and maintained”

      Purveyor, 1993

      The Bill of Rights, the 1st, 2nd, 4th and 5th amendments in particular, exemplify my above assertion.  For instance, the 1st amendment guarantees religious freedom for the mainstream Christian Religions which so influenced our nations formation.  However, that same amendment protects less common, even somewhat unsavory religious practice as long as that “practice” does NOT spill over into the liberty of others…

      The concept of “prior restraint” applies in the first as well as the second amendment, i.e., America by way of our Constitution punishes the commission of the crime, NOT the potential crime.  (Conspiracy laws withstanding)  I am willing to let the KKK or Reverend Jeremiah Wright express their views, so as to guarantee my freedom of religion and expression.  So too am I willing to accept that accidents will happen and crimes may occur in order that the American citizen is guaranteed their right “to keep and bear arms,” thus defend themselves from tyranny and crime. (Note: We have both “tyranny” and “crime” in excess recently)   

      Please do not attempt to use an argument of moral relativism as we have BOTH heard the quote,regarding “the power of the pen!”

      ILLEGAL Obama
      Truth 2008 and 2012


      The US
      Constitution requires the persons chosen for the Presidency of the United States
      THE WRITING OF THE US Constitution.

      Regarding the persons born before the writing of the US
      Constitution a simple US Citizenship proven in the Revolutionary War was
      acceptable for the US Presidency. Also, the parents of those born before the
      United States became a nation were not U.S. Citizens –They were colonialists
      subjects of England at the time the candidate was born and therefore could not
      qualify their children for Natural Born U.S. Citizen. The alternative of just a
      U.S. Citizenship is not available today, that ended in the

      Naturally Born Citizenship was well understood by the writers of the US
      Constitution, That the Naturally Born Citizen be born in the United States to
      parents each of which are US Citizens at the time of the child’s birth which
      assured the child would be raised in the United States without allegiance to any
      other nation –Thus, a Naturally Born US Citizen whose allegiance is not in
      doubt and therefore is basically qualified
      to be chosen to the Presidency of the United States.

    Thank you for your support.  Coming up on 2 years since my wife succumbed to this terrible desease.  She fought it for 4-1/2 years…In my experience most of the money and time is spent with chemo development and that technology is improving all based on the same concept of targeting individual cells rather than poisining the entire body.  However, there are other procedures that are not able to be used in this country due to gov. regs.  We went to Germany for lung surgery using lasers….experimental here…we saw the the Doctor that developed the procedure and the laser (different wavelength)…successful for over 20 years.  We use laser to whiten teeth, remove hair and tattoos….but he couldn’t get his procedure past our gov. regs?!? IMO, Health care in this country is based on treating symptons with drugs rather than treating the cause of the problem…..
