Best Answer(s) for Cancer Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life and treatment of cancer patients with a holistic platform, targeted cancer therapies, and a patient-centered approach. Best Answer for Cancer Foundation (BAFC) believes the best standard of cancer care is one that provides the best quality of life during treatment and the best outlook for a long, vital life.
Our vision is a world where the patient comes first – where cancer treatment is patient-centered as opposed to physician-centered. Where the whole person is considered and not just the tumor. Where the phrase ‘first do no harms’ is taken literally and so the first step in cancer treatment is to target just the cancer and not the patient. The treatment should not be worse than the disease.
We are a hybrid organization of doctors and patients working to shift the cancer paradigm from a one-size-fits-all disease-based approach to a patient-centered, integrative medical approach. We support integrative oncology that addresses the disease while considering the uniqueness of each patient. We wish to empower physicians and patients to adopt the newer, more successful paradigm. We believe the best answer for cancer is an approach that destroys the cancer while enhancing the overall health of the patient.
Most of those who collaborate with BAFC are themselves cancer survivors. Life has shown us what survivors have in common and how to thrive while surviving. We, and the doctors who work with us, are dedicated to making the “cancer experience” a positive passage in your life. We help patients with information about targeted and integrative treatments, fundraising for expenses, building their support network using the Patient/Survivor Center, and information about how to strengthen their immune systems and vital body organs in order to experience “thriving while surviving.”
In 2011, BAFC was accepted into the Integrative Medicine Consortium (IMC). It’s vision is to make integrative medicine the standard of care.
