Believe Big is excited to be in the trenches with cancer research. We are supporting Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine to develop the first clinical trial in the United States using intravenous Mistletoe. This clinical trial brings together the conventional and complementary medical communities to fight cancer.
Mistletoe treatment for cancer is used widely in Germany and Switzerland, but in the United States, every potential treatment must be studied in a series of steps, call phases. Each phase is designed to answer a separate research question. The Mistletoe clinical trial at Johns Hopkins will be a Phase 1 trial, in which researchers will be testing the drug on a small group of participants to evaluate safety, determine a safe dose, and identify side effects. This is the first step of many research steps before mistletoe can be considered for conventional use in cancer treatment.
You have the opportunity to help us fund this ground breaking trial and make it available to patients here! Because mistletoe is a natural substance and there is not a patent possibility, pharmaceutical companies will not fund this trial. Therefore, all funding has been raised through philanthropic and private donations.
We have lost too many sisters, brothers, mothers and fathers to cancer. Will you help us in helping to spread the word and help us fund this trial? By clicking on the donate link below, you can make a tax-deductible donation of any amount where 100% of the donation will go directly to funding this trial. We are so close! We have raised $465,000 of the $500,000 needed for phase 1. We can do this!
Due to the high level of interest in the study, we are assessing eligibility for the study in advance of a visit to Johns Hopkins. Please provide the name and contact number for your medical oncologist and the research team will follow up with you.

I suffer from cold weather dry skin, winter dry skin, or maybe just general dry skin. But whatever you call it, I get frequent dry patches on my legs and arms. Mainly during colder seasons. I try to use products with extreme hydrating ingredients to keep my skin moisturized.
With frigid temperatures and crisp, dry air, wintertime does not really make it easier for us to take care of our skin. As if the process was not already complex enough throughout the other parts of the year, the newest research has proven that seasonal structural changes of the skin only complicate the problem, especially when it comes to skin aging. In this article, we present you with some tips on how to be prepared for such hardships and have healthy, youthful skin irrespective of unfavorable winter conditions.
