Ron’s Journey to a Therapeutic Cure.
In 2012, Ron Khare, the guy who “never got sick” found out he had bladder cancer.
Agent Orange is one the herbicides and defoliants used by the U.S. military as part of its herbicidal warfare program during the Vietnam War from 1961 to 1971.
While stationed Dong Ha, Vietnam, Ron and many others were exposed to Agent Orange on a daily basis.
Unconvinced of the diagnosis of removing the bladder completely, Ron’s wife Googled “Alternative bladder cancer treatments”. In 2012 and again in 2014, Ron uses a combination of hypothermia and low dose radiation to successfully eliminate the tumor. In the Fall of 2015, after 2 years of success, the cancer returned. Though for now the cancer cells have been removed, they could come back at any moment.
Ron and his wife have found an alternative treatment that could likely save his bladder and his life.
Agent Orange Exposure
However, the procedure is not available in the U.S., and is not covered by Medicare or supplemental insurance.
Even though Veteran’s Affairs (VA) has claimed Ron’s exposure to Agent Orange and the tainted water at Camp Lujuene are to blame for his particular type of cancer.
Ron and his family (and his extended Peaceful Media family) are trying to raise $30,000 for the immunotherapy procedure at Hope4Cancer in Mexico.
Help Ron get the treatment he needs so he can continue to fight for the rights of US cancer patients seeking alternative and life-improving medical treatment.
They say that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and every single contribution we receive — no matter how big or small — is another crucial steps for us in this fight against cancer.

Treatment Update from Ron Khare (April 7, 2017)
Please pardon the delay in getting this update to you!
I am pleased to announce that, thanks to all of you, we have completed our 3-day “ Outpatient” RIGVIR treatment protocol in Mexico! (1-3 March) It went extremely well, and the doctors, nurses, and all the rest of the staff were really wonderful!
If you go to Hope4Cancer.com and click on RIGVIR you can see all the details about this treatment.
In an interesting turn of events, I was recently pronounced Cancer Free! This is always great news! The only problem is that I have heard that twice before…hence the need for the RIGVIR viral therapy. RIGVIR is a virus proven to only attack the cancer stem cells that cause the tumors to begin with. These cancer stem cells are very effective in managing to elude the body’s immune system and the various cancer treatments, hence the high recurrence of cancer many folks experience.
As you know, with all your help we had been saving for the estimated $30K to undergo a month-long treatment in Cancun with Hope4Cancer. This month-long program is packed with every cancer healing you can imagine. But since I am now cancer free, I qualified for a three-day outpatient clinic option we just recently found out about. This program for just the RigVir therapy was only $13K.
Thanks to all of you, and with some personal money we managed to save, we raised that amount. So we jumped on the opportunity and away we went!
The clinic was great! It seems once you are out of the states, you can work on healing… curing, not just treating. The clinic has 10 different healing modalities, 11 if you include diet (which was just great). And there were a lot of young doctors and nurses. Our fellow patients were great as well – no victims here!
Now back home, I have a shot each Friday for a final total of 13 injections. I just finished #7.
At the end of May, I return to the clinic for evaluation (the cost for the two days at the clinic is included in the original 13K package) but I do need to get there and back. So we are still accepting contributions to this continuing journey.
I still have the two tubes out of my back to drain the kidneys, but all the normal “male” functions are back online. With cancer out of the picture all focus is on healing the bladder to regain the ability to hold for longer time periods, allowing the tubes to be phased out.
My bladder is filled with scar tissue and calcification as a result of the various treatments over the years. I am having an increasingly strong need to urinate, especially noticeable at night.
Obviously, my bladder is not functioning properly and the doctors continually want me to remove it for “lifestyle improvement” but having come this far in 4 and ½ years, still intact, I am committed to getting it back to a more normal capacity and function.
So along with the RIGVIR treatment I’m continuing several specific protocols that are known to remove scar tissue from the body, and to heal the bladder and the urinary tract.
This has been one heck of a health journey. I have been stretched in ways I never thought I’d experience in this lifetime. After enjoying 65 years of robust health…this was quite a shock. But the best part, with Phyllis at the helm, we have learned so much and have been able to be of assistance to many others…a role that I really enjoy.
I know I have shared this with many of you, but in case you did not hear it, a short story:
I have had a couple of close encounters with the “other side”… and God spoke to me during one of these times. The message was about my (remaining) life purpose…
“BE NICE TO PEOPLE… AND HELP THEM IF YOU CAN”
So I have my marching orders. I work on this every day and look for opportunities to help, but I have come to realize that the second part:
“HELP THEM IF YOU CAN” actually is:
“HELP THEM… IF YOU CAN”
Not everyone wants your help, as it turns out, but you have to be willing to help – or at least just wish them all the best.
That’s it. All our love — Ron Khare

Jim Carrey once said, “The effect we have on others is the most valuable currency there is.” I couldn’t agree more. At the end of our lives, nobody will remember us for building businesses and making money. We’re here to learn how to love one another. This was just a beautiful opportunity for us to rally together, use our talents for good, and try our best to help a Vietnam veteran heal.

Everyone should have the right to choose the medical treatment that affords them the best quality of life among the approved options that have been proven effective.

It’s our duty as human beings to help those that need it.

There is the time we spend expending creativity and effort for capital gain and the time we spend hoping to help others and strengthen the bonds of our community. Speaking personally, when I’m only exercising my talents and creativity for a paycheck, I feel disconnected from my community—it’s like a spiritual flu.
Working on this project has brought me so much joy; it has brought me closer to all my wonderful colleagues that have helped out along the way. As for Ron and Phyllis—they are about as compassionate, kind and talented as anyone you’ll find. The world could use more people like them.

Waking up every day excited to do a job I love, with people who are positive and making a difference in the world is an amazing feeling. And having the opportunity to volunteer my skills to help our friend Ron in his time of need….even better. Love you all!
