About Cancer Ireland

Cancer Ireland is an information only, not-for-profit website.

Cancer Ireland is owned, maintained, and funded by:

About me
I have been studying cancer since 2010. I’m not a medical professional, nor do I need to be one to provide this free service. I simply gather credible information from top cancer doctors, recovered stage 4 patients, clinical studies, medical journals, and researchers and I share it on this site.

I maintain this website because, to its shame the Irish cancer industry (especially the so-called cancer charities) fails to provide this information to patients. In fact, the Irish Cancer Society lies about some proven complementary and alternative treatments and ignores countless others, while raising tens of millions of euros every year for research that has contributed little or nothing to overall survival for patients.

I do not receive payment of any kind for featuring goods or services on this site – they are included only to provide readers with vital information. I do not accept paid advertising or promotions of any sort and I neither solicit nor accept donations or payment-in-kind.

Cancer Ireland Vision:
A world where safe, effective methods of curing cancer replace the highly dangerous (and mostly ineffective) treatments currently in use in mainstream oncology.

Cancer Ireland Mission:
To promotes awareness of all the cancer tests, treatments and strategies being used worldwide to help patients recover from cancer as quickly and as painlessly as possible.
