Greg MacDonald, entering his sophomore year in aerospace engineering at Syracuse University, was looking for a miracle when he first read about the Kanzius Non-invasive Radio Wave Cancer Treatment online. In his words, "From the moment I heard about the Kanzius project...when it was nothing more than a viral video of the wave machine, I have been an avid follower of John Kanzius and his work...now his legacy. He inspired hope in me at a hopeless time in my life and continues to do so, because I truly believe that in the Kanzius machine lies the solution to cancer."
Greg and his brother Andrew, a high school senior in Hanover, Mass., along with siblings Jeffrey and Gretchen, know all too well what cancer does to a family.
When Greg was a high school freshman, his mother, Beth, was stricken with Leiomyosarcoma, a very rare soft tissue cancer that is difficult to treat, and which requires surgery, chemo and radiation. Despite the serious illness of their mother, Greg and Andrew were encouraged to experience all the activities of high school.
The boys suffered another blow when their dad, Bruce, was diagnosed with Nasopharyngeal Carcinamo in 2009. Fortunately, Bruce responded well to head and neck radiation as well as chemo, and is now cancer free. Beth is still undergoing treatment following her sixth major surgery in August after undergoing seven different systemic chemotherapy treatments.
When they became aware of the Pepsi Refresh Everything Project, the boys went into action. Greg established a Facebook page "Cure Cancer With Just One Mouse Click," running it from his Syracuse dorm. He spent hours encouraging friends to vote. When he became ill with mono only a week after he established the site, Andrew took over and together they gathered over 600 Facebook followers, leading to hundreds of votes each day for the Kanzius Foundation.
Greg and Andrew MacDonald follow the research and support the Kanzius Foundation in its effort to make the dream of a cancer cure a reality.
