Back in 2001, Chris Woollams' 22-year old daughter, Catherine, developed her grade 4 brain tumour, almost the first thing she read was a report in the doctor´s own magazine, the Lancet, which said that the drugs didn´t work - they offered no hope of cure.

Nothing could help a young girl given 6 months to live.

So father and daughter did their research - setting out to find something (anything) - alternative cancer treatments, the cancer causes and cancer information - that could help her stand a chance of beating her brain cancer. They quickly realised that the vast majority of UK cancer information only focussed on the three legs of Orthodox treatment - drugs, radiotherapy and surgery. But they also found that all over the world there was an abundance of quality research on treatments in three important areas, all with the potential to help her:

1. Complementary cancer therapies - from exercise to energy therapies, and from natural bioactive compounds to herbs - all things that can improve orthodox medicine, and increase your odds of survival.

2. New, emerging and alternative cancer therapies - like Ablation (For example, HIFU), localised hyperthermia, virotherapy and PDT; proving increasingly successful in other countries. Are they 'alternative cancer treatments' or simply 'tomorrow's cancer treatments today'?

3. Cancer Prevention - other charities seem to be completely unable to acknowledge the expert research available casting concern over Environmental Toxins, stress, EMFs and chemicals as possible causes. Importantly, if not addressed, they may still be the drivers of your cancer.

Chris and his daughter went on to found the Charity Cancer Active
