Your Personal Cancer Navigator says:
A cancer navigator must have credibility, qualifications & vast experience assisting cancer patients to navigate the cancer maze.
As a cancer navigator, I have 4 decades of multi-disciplinary experience. Using the model I developed, I guide, monitor & manage patients helping them to develop a personalised survivor-ship care plan.
Many Survivors: Over the decades I have helped many patients become long term survivors. For example my first brain cancer patient, then a young boy of 4, is alive and well today, 26 years later.
Background: In the early 80s, I co-founded the first cancer support groups in Australia, then pioneered residential programs for cancer patients.
Other experiences include 22 yrs as a caregiver to a cancer amputee, then co-director of 2 cancer charities. I’m an international speaker & author of 4 cancer related books.
A solid background in veterinary surgical work led on to training qualifications with distinctions in nutrition, herbal medicine, & naturopathy. This was followed by courses in counselling, Ericksonian hypnotherapy, psycho-oncology, Rubenfeld Synergy (USA) and more… More about my background click here
My patients find it inspiring to know that, due to a life challenging condition, I have experienced 23 surgical procedures; including 6 life-saving surgeries overseas.
I underwent a world first experimental surgery in the Netherlands in 2002/3. Of note: I was discouraged by most Australian specialists from seeking the new procedure, one that proved to be life-saving. Listen to my UK BBC Bristol interview here.
Cancer doctors of Excellence:
GGI Co-Director, Pip Cornall says, “As Institute director, I’ve been assisting & supporting Grace’s cancer work for nearly 8 years.
Previously I was a high school teacher & later worked in juvenile justice (Australia & USA). Without any experience of cancer, I naturally assumed all doctors & hospitals delivered high quality cancer services.
However; after 8 years helping Grace at the cancer coalface, I have witnessed that doctors, like lawyers, teachers or builders, vary in their skill & dedication levels – ranging from poor to exceptional.
This can mean the difference between life & death for unsuspecting patients; who like me assume all cancer doctors are equally skilled & dedicated.
Consequently – we provide a cancer navigation service to advise, guide & support patients to access expert doctors in our global network; doctors who consistently deliver high levels of cancer medicine excellence.
The outcome is quality survival & longevity for many of our patients previously told by their doctors or hospitals, “there is nothing more we can do.”
About our global cancer navigation service…
We invite you to explore the options of an overseas second opinion & treatment protocol if you are:
- Diagnosed with a rare or difficult to treat cancer, & if you are still relatively well and able to travel.
- Experiencing resistance to treatments that would normally work for your cancer type.
- Finished treatment – have stable disease & wanting to pursue further treatment options.
- Early in diagnosis & considering treatment at an alternative medicine clinic overseas. We have vast experience in this area & advise that there may be innovative conventional treatments, genomic diagnostics, targeted medicine & highly effective cell-based therapies with over 25 years of verified, credible research with publications; that you may not know about.
Unlike a medical tourism group – we provide much more than a referral service.
In fact, this service is so unique it sets the benchmark in personalised cancer care & management, providing guidance & management at every step.
It is essential and our requirement, that all patients referred overseas have joined a cancer navigation package. Click to view our Cancer Navigation Package
Precision Medicine & the Genomic Era: Join the Cancer Treatment Revolution
We help our patients access Precision Medicine – targeted, minimally invasive treatments, not yet routinely available in most hospitals:
Genomic diagnostic and screening tests can accurately identify targeted treatments for cancer patients.
The tests lay the foundation for precision medicine, also called personalised or targeted medicine.
As a bonus: pharmacogenomic tests can determine whether the patient can metabolise (digest/absorb) the identified target treatment successfully.
These two tests have revolutionised cancer medicine with targeted treatments achieving better outcomes.
We understand if you think our service sounds too good to be true!
If they inspire you please contact us and we’ll start your Health Restoration Journey by sending your medical history to our overseas experts for a second opinion.
You’ll soon be meeting for yourselves some of the many exceptional cancer doctors in our global network.
Leaders in their fields, they are not restricted by local hospital protocols or financial constraints.
The testimonials verify that many of our patients consistently defy normal Clinical Expectations.
Many of our patients had advanced cancer – many have achieved excellent outcomes. The majority received a special immune therapy made from their own blood or cells – minimally invasive – minimal side effects.
To celebrate these consistent successes we formed an exceptional survivor’s group; the Grace Gawler Institute Christmas Club.
Jeffrey Deslandes, a 12 year survivor of stage IV non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, thanks to cancer vaccines, is patron of our Christmas club. For more information…

If these stories inspire – you can arrange a Skype Consultation (green button below).
If required, I can fast track your appointment.
In the consultation, we’ll examine your medical history and begin your Health Restoration Plan. Based on your history – I’ll discuss treatment options with you. I predict you’ll be amazed – since most patients say; ‘I wish I found you sooner.’
Next: For continuity, convenience & cost efficiency, we advise registering for a Cancer Navigation Package. (Red button below) This commitment underpins the many hours of complex organisation & international collaborations required to give you a second chance at life...
Targeted Botanicals and Precision Wellness.
Targeted Cancer Nutrition – No more gueswork:
I can also support your cancer treatments with coordinated-targeted botanicals, (when appropriate).
This requires an in-depth knowledge of herb-drug, food-drug and other interactions – one of my strengths.
Our Precision Wellness Program helps you maintain gains from your overseas treatments, minimise risk of recurrence, contribute to longevity & well-being.

Nutritionals: In the age of Dr Google one-size-fits all cancer marketing hype, we support your your journey with safe science-based nutritional medicine, including prescribed targeted botanical products. We can refer you for gene-based nutritional analysis.
All our prescribed products are checked via pharmacogenomics to ensure compatibility with any conventional cancer treatments you are having.
