Story of Hope! Jeff Charles Beats Colon Cancer with Mistletoe!

My name is Jeff Charles, and I am a two-time cancer survivor. I was diagnosed with Stage III colon cancer on December 3, 2012. I was 60 years old and in outstanding physical condition, which is a big reason why I am here today. I was in remission for 20 months and naively thought I had whipped cancer. Not so fast, my friend. February 2016 another tumor was discovered in my left lung, and I had surgery where they removed half my lung. I had the same oncologist from day one and became increasingly frustrated while under his care. After three lung surgeries to remove four tumors I asked him, “Where do you think we are, moving forward?” His response was a shrug of the shoulders and, “You’ll just continue to get more tumors.” That was my light bulb moment. I said, “There has to be a better way!”


I searched the internet for a natural approach to cancer and found Believe Big. I called and they directed me to the resources I needed. I received intravenous mistletoe, injections of mistletoe, and radically changed my diet. The great news is that no new tumors have appeared since changing my protocol and I am completely cancer free!


I am now on a mission to help Believe Big spread the word about a combined approach of complementary and traditional care to cancer treatment. I am thankful to have a job as a sportscaster that enables me to do so. You want to beat cancer? Be smart, be tough, and your attitude is incredibly important. As crazy as it sounds, cancer has been a blessing. Through having cancer, I have become a better husband, father, coworker, and just an overall better person. In a strange way it also gave me confidence. It’s like, “This is about as tough as it gets; I’ve come through this and I can handle anything and WIN!” I am forever grateful to Believe Big!

Integrative Medicine Meeting in Germany

In September we had the opportunity to travel to Stuttgart, Germany to attend the Integrated Medicine Meeting. The Integrated Medicine Meeting was a gathering of over 250 professionals hosted at the headquarters of Helixor, a producer of Mistletoe. Our team met with experts in the fields of integrated medicine from all over the world to learn of new research and case studies in oncology. We toured the Helixor mistletoe extract production facility and learned how the plant is harvested, stored, and how the extract obtained from the plant. Our team toured the Helixor arboretum and learned about each specific species of mistletoe and the growth and maturation process. We also participated in a poster session and presented on the upcoming Mistletoe Clinical Trial at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Thank You Friends!!

Dear Friends,

Thank you for coming to our first Cook & Kiss Cancer Goodbye Fundraiser!  Because of you, we raised $20,000 and nearly met our goal of $25,000!  We are so very grateful for your support!  We work with patients each day that depend on the financial assistance we offer and the support of our patient advocates and staff.

The night of the cooking class we received this email and wanted to share it with you.

“From the bottom of our hearts, my husband and I would like to thank you for your graciousness and guidance toward the Namaste Health Center. As I wind down my last week here (and although very tired but satisfied and grateful) I realize how very different my life would be had I not found Believe Big and this path. God is so good and I’ve learned a lot about healing in many areas. Thank you so much for the grant you have given us. Your work is blessed and we will continue to pray for Believe Big’s endeavors moving forward.”

As Jimmy shared, generous donors like you enable Believe Big to do BIG things!  Currently, we are very low on wellness grant funds and we are $68,000 away from fully funding the mistletoe clinical trial with the Johns Hopkins Hospital that is due to begin THIS December!  Both of these are critical needs for us to continue to provide hope, help, and healing to patients and their families.

We are standing at a ground breaking moment in the medical world and it’s exciting to see this all beginning in Baltimore.  As we approach the end of the year and the holiday season, please keep Believe Big in mind for your end of year giving!

Believing Big!
