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.
Thank you for helping us on this journey! #DoMoreGood

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!
