The Research On the Brink of Curing Cancer

A universal cancer cure in our lifetime may seem unimaginable, but my research indicates that we’re closer than you think.

Approximately 14.1 million new people are diagnosed with cancer each year, and 8.8 million people worldwide die from it. This war on cancer is not about statistics. It’s personal for me. And I have dedicated my life to finding a cure for cancer without side effects. 

Living in pain

At age 22, I became the primary caregiver to my aunt and uncle, Ora Lee Smith and General Lee Smith, who were the only parents I knew. Auntie told me she would rather die than experience the horrible side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

My uncle went to the brink of death, suffering from the side effects my aunt feared. I witnessed the horrors of cancer with and without treatment, and I knew there had to be a better way. 

My loving tribute

In memory of my loved ones, I developed a patent-pending new approach to eradicate difficult-to-treat cancers by targeting and destroying malignant cells while preserving healthy ones. Using lasers and nanotechnology, I created Laser-Activated Nano-Therapy (LANT). This innovation has completely eliminated human tumors in mice after a single treatment within 15 days without observable side effects.

Because of this curative and complete therapeutic response, our clinical partners, oncologists, and surgeons, including Navicent Healthcare, are ready to host LANT human clinical trials in a variety of cancer types, including breast, brain, prostate, skin, head and neck, pancreatic, and a variety of inoperable, chemo-resistant, and difficult-to-treat cancers. 

I also founded the Ora Lee Smith Cancer Research Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, to fund the translation of my technology into and beyond human clinical trials. Our goal is to ensure that this new, physics-inspired medical advancement is available to all, regardless of a patient’s socio-economic status.

As a member of the Advanced Technology Development Center (Georgia’s technology incubator), we have chosen to utilize the nonprofit fundraising model as an innovative strategy to create affordable healthcare. 

The light ahead

Now,17 years after cancer devastated my family, the Ora Lee Foundation is on the brink of a cancer cure, with funding as the single barrier to begin LANT human trials. Not just within our lifetime, but within 12 months of reaching our first fundraising goal of $10 million, we can begin LANT human trials. We will realize our mission to change the way cancer is treated and provide an affordable, accessible, and effective cancer treatment. 

I am continuously motivated by helpless patients that cry out for my assistance when they have received a terrifying diagnosis or have been told that “there is nothing else we can do.” This technology provides hope to the hopeless. It can be the cancer cure in our lifetime and the future of cancer care.
