The Story

In The Beginning

In 2010, I began conducting research on internet sites promoting alleged natural cures and treatments for a wide-variety of cancers. My research was inspired after a family member had her treatments delayed due to the promise of a natural approach to her cancer. At the outset of my research, I was overwhelmed and shocked at the number of sites claiming to work cancer miracles through a "safe and natural" method or product. As I delved into actual components of these treatments (if they were listed), I noticed that most of these chemicals were already tested and discovered NOT to be viable treatments. I wondered,"How can I fix this?"

Preliminary Research

In 2012, while earning my Masters in Science Education, I conducted research on this topic. I surveyed the landscape of sites out there offering up Natural Science Cures and Treatments for cancer. Thousands of sites were uncovered. Every site preyed on the desperate using scientific sounding jargon as well as feed upon their hopes, wishes, and prayers. I discovered people telling their stories of how they were robbed of their money, became even sicker, or people that could no longer update their pages because they had died. I found a dozen voices who had family members and loved ones that have died by having faith in non-scientific treatments. Something needs to be done!

There's Hope

I wish to complete my research by delving deeper in my investigation of the harm that these pseudo-medical internet sites cause to the public. I need your support to pursue my PhD in Public Health with Euclid University. Your donation will pay me through University and provide financing for the research needed. With your help, I plan to uncover those that would do us harm through bad science and empty promises.

Thank you!

In Reason - Future, Dr. Reginald V. Finley Sr

Update:

I have changed my school to Euclid University. A chartered global University partnered with UNESCO, the only UN agency with a mandate in higher education. Recognition via an energetic, small, and yet focused Global University will allow me to expand my work on an international level and help many others plagued with bad science and pseudo-health information found on the internet. I'm looking forward to working closely with many of my international brothers and sisters who are working hard to change the face of distance education, as well as to bring humanity closer together through mutual respect and understanding.

Thank you all for the latest donations. I have also decided to create a website dedicated to educating the public about proper scientific methodology, as well as, exposing organizations and individuals that prey on the vulnerabilities of people that seek alternative treatments for their cancer. Please visit: Cancer Cure Scams and watch this site slowly evolve over the next few months with great information and stories from people that have been affected by medical pseudoscience. http://www.cancercurescams.com

Thank you for our first donor and for those of you spreading the word. I have added some additional information about the cancer research I wish to conduct and posted it to my LinkedIn profile. https://www.linkedin.com/today/post/article/seeking-sponsorship-research-finishing-my-phd-finley-med-msc-?trk=prof-post

Please share that article as well if you are on LinkedIn and request to add me to your network.

You can also help by submitting stories to me about any friends and/or family you know that may have been affected by these online scammers claiming that they can treat or cure cancer via some natural means. If an online natural health site provided a regimen that someone thinks cured someone's cancer, I want to hear those stories too. Please send to: [email protected]

Thank you my distant cousins!
