"Drug companies are spending time on things which make money, not that work."  That's according to filmmaker Jeff Witzeman.  He followed his wife with a camera through Stage 3 bladder cancer.  She came through on the other side, cancer free (in 30-days) with all her organs, and none of the side-effects which chemotherapy and radiation would have inflicted on her  body.  http://cancercanbekilled.com/ 

The Federal Drug Administration doesn't investigate natural cures because there is nothing to patent or make a profit. Germany, Sweden, and several other European countries use naturopathic medicine to heal cancer patients; Jeff says that happens at a third of the cost and with no side-effects.

How do you know what is legitimate and what isn't?  And what choices do children have in America when it comes to Leukemia or Lymphoma?

Jeff is a panelist at the Indie Film Showcase at Sundance Film Festival in 2018. He'll be appearing alongside E! founder Larry Namer, Australian filmmaker David Raynor, filmmaker Sue Vicory, and eco-entrepreneur Allison Melody. Their panel, scheduled for Sunday, January 21 at Bodega Tapas and Wine on Main Street in Park City, will be moderated by I Entertainment News's Monica Morrison. 

Before making his first film, Jeff was an actor, writer and musician, appearing in shows like Frazier and Webster and even a Miller Genuine Draft Super Bowl commercial.

Cancer in America is a 100-Billion dollar a year industry and the cost of chemotherapy drugs continues to rise. Filmmaker Jeff Witzeman was inspired to look into cancer treatment and the health industry after his wife, who was urged to have an organ removed as well as chemo and radiation, was able to beat cancer naturally in Germany in just 30 days. The result was his documentary, "Cancer Can Be Killed," streaming now on Amazon Prime, iTunes, GooglePlay, vimeo and VHX.tv.
