Jeffrey Deslandes thought he had it all. The father of five children, he had his whole life ahead of him. But on one fateful day in 1999, he believed it was all over when he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. He was wrong.
His is an inspiring, positive, and true story about surviving cancer—and the things it teaches you. You grow as a person. You learn what is really important in life. You discover who your true friends are.
After traditional treatments, such as chemotherapy, failed to control his cancer, Jeffrey started looking for emerging therapies. When he learned of an experimental treatment involving a personalised vaccine protocol, he pursued it. It is now feasible to have something good—a personalised cancer vaccine—created from something bad—your cancer. This one-of-a-kind vaccine reeducated his immune system so that it could identify and destroy his cancer.
Jeffrey’s story is not a gloom-and-doom tale of yet another poor soul enduring cancer treatment. Instead, he shares his story in the hope of reaching and inspiring other cancer patients who may have given up. Some of the stories in this book come from his deep spiritual core, but he is not a “religious” man. He doesn’t require you to believe these stories, only to know that everything detailed in this book is true.
It was January 2006; Jennifer Alderman was engrossed in a session with Medium Michael Cartwright. Assisting Michael was his ever faithful Spirit Guide, the venerable Mr Tai Ling. Jennifer was wanting to learn of her family and the associated troubles they had had. It was going well, but Tai Ling kept butting in with stuff that didn’t concern her... you are going to meet a male he said, he is having something injected into him; it’s nothing to do with diabetes or illicit drugs. Jennifer was becoming annoyed as much of her session was being spent on something she had no interest in, as she was against Western medicine and besides she didn’t even know such a person. The crux of the communication was that when Jennifer met this person, and she would, that she was not to pooh-pooh his treatment because it was the very best that modern medicine could offer.
So began my Spiritual awakening that I was not alone in my journey with cancer, and that the Spirit world weaves its web in mysterious ways. You see, I had been battling Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma since 1999 and my cancer had relapsed for the fourth time. In mid 2006 I had embarked on a new and experimental treatment whereby a personalised vaccine was manufactured from my own body cells and injected into me.
Some months later Jennifer and my paths did cross, at a Basketball stadium in Mornington. She overheard me talking about the treatment I was having. She told me she already knew because Michael had told her all about it. She then loaned me the tape of the session which had been made, and I was blown away... How could Michael Cartwright and his Spirit Guide know about me and my experimental cancer vaccine treatment, and why would they even care?
I immediately made an appointment to have a Medium session with Michael, to shed more light on the matter. But unfortunately he sadly passed away a few days later and I was never able to see him. Undeterred I was put in touch with a wonderfully talented Medium I shall call Jillian. I remember clearly before my first session, some of my friends said “you know, Mediums are charlatans, they are just there to take your money.” I recall my first session took one and a half hours, and at the end of it I was charged a paltry $30, hardly a money making exercise! Apart from communicating with my grandfather Alfred, grandmother Elsie, mother Pauline, father Frank and dear brother David who had all passed, Jillian was also able to make contact with Tai Ling who was the Spirit Guide so interested in my treatment. This follow-up confirmed that the Spirit world was indeed very interested in my welfare and treatment... in fact there was a whole army of people rooting for me, be they in this world or beyond. Tai Ling communicated that my treatment was the best that modern medicine could offer, and that I was like a pebble in a pond, proving the treatment for other cancer patients. Why Spirit is interested in me and would even be aware of my treatment, I cannot explain. But it has given me great comfort to know that indeed I was not alone in my journey.
Jennifer was to teach me that cancer is not a disease but a dis-ease. That cancer can manifest itself as a result of your body not being in balance. It is so important to get your life in order, as well as having treatment to cure the illness.
This book is about my life leading up to my first diagnosis with cancer, the cancer journey, and my life beyond cancer. I do my best to explain what it is really like to be faced with life-threatening cancer. I will do my best to explain what it is like to endure the myriad of cancer tests and treatments. But more importantly I want to show you that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and you can survive cancer and lead a life which is richer and fuller than it ever was. I want to inspire cancer patients and their families that there is hope and that you must never give up. If I had done, I would not be here today to tell my story.
An Australian man's life, journey through cancer and beyond. Truly inspirational. A book people can relate to written with honesty.
This book is a must read for anyone touched by cancer. An amazing story...highly recommended!
An inspiring story giving hope to all Cancer patients and their family's.
Fantastic informative easy read! Vaccine therapy is truly wonderful and spreading globally in popularity! Your own antidote vaccine, created precisely for your cancer cells.
Whether you’re investigating cancer treatments to understand the options available to those you love; you have just been diagnosed; or you have experienced treatments already and are looking for ‘what else is available’, I urge you to read on. This treatment is so incredibly gentle on your body, does not interfere with any other treatments, and offers enjoyment of living on in good health.
I have watched the happy results!!
Jeff’s sharing of his life’s experiences that came before cancer, had me reflect on my life. Where can I make the changes now to increase my wellbeing?
A good news book!
Quite a remarkable story of a man facing likely death who now has an important message for us all aptly expressed in the title of his book.
Apart from the excellent research on cancer, very well set out for those of us who may need it in the future, this is a fascinating story of how Jeff has managed the challenge.
It is a story of hope. It is a story of determination. It is a story which we can all benefit from hearing.
Near death Jeff sought the wonderful and likely impossible result now achieved. With the vaccine treatment in Brisbane and support and guidance from the Spirit world he has been taken along the path to a continued life among his friends.
There is “Life Beyond cancer” and Jeff’s story should help to convince us all.

Inspirational true life journey of hope and determination, conquering cancer and how to overcome it. Jeff's message is a positive must read for all. Spreading the message of Vaccine therapy - an option that needs to be shared and promoted.
Jeffrey is a wonderful and caring and loving beautiful friend who has helped me in so many ways. And I love what he has written about my journey.
With a diagnosis of Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma and a rather negative view of chemotherapy, I felt so blessed to be given a copy of Jeffrey Deslandes’ book. I believe in an integrative approach to all cancers and the innovative treatment of the Gallipoli Medical Research Foundation was a real inspiration. Believing in a body-mind-spirit approach to healing, I also found the book a most enjoyable read.
Enjoyed reading this book immensely, then passed it on to someone with cancer to give them hope and inspiration.
A heart touching story of an ordinary man with an extraordinary life who beat the odds and survived cancer. This book is an interesting and inspiring read for both the cancer and non-cancer sufferer.
I found this book interesting, informative and written in very simple terms that even a layman like myself can understand. For anyone experiencing cancer or who knows of someone with cancer it as a must read and I would highly recommend it. Anyone who has experienced chemotherapy will know the trauma on the body it delivers and if a treatment has being found that has no side effects and only uses what belongs to the patient, why would you not at least consider Vaccine Therapy? I think it is a ground breaking treatment that everybody has a right to know about. The cost of the book is extremely reasonable and well worth a read.
A diagnosis of cancer all too often can come to define a person. For some though, it is just the first step on a positive healing journey. Jeff has been very honest about his experience which encompasses so many aspects of treating cancer. Jeff’s story is a must for anyone touched by cancer.
Jeffrey has produced a highly informative book, full of hope about the future of cancer treatment and a great story of courage and determination.
As a Registered Nurse, I found it to be a wonderful book. Well written and easy to understand. Will give to my friend who's husband is going through cancer treatment at the moment.
An inspirational tale of a mans journey and courageous and successful battle. Truly an amazing read and inspiration for people on all levels. Congratulations on a brilliant book!
A wonderful, inspiring book. Not to be missed. Wonderful for those with cancer to give them hope and inspiration.
Loved you book, thoroughly enjoyed it! Took me back to my childhood in the 50’s. My husband also has lymphoma, so it was particularly relevant. We need new therapies such as vaccine therapy to become more widely available, because chemotherapy is so toxic to your body. Have lent the book to a friend who has cancer.
An inspiring, true story. My father is living proof that you can overcome a diagnosis of advanced cancer, and live life beyond cancer without compromise.
I have known Jeffrey for the past 5 years or so through our volunteer work with the St. Vincent de Paul Society.
Until I read his book, I would never have known he has had cancer. He is so fit and well it is truly amazing. This book explains his journey from cancer diagnosis to survival without compromise.
An inspiring and informative book detailing Jeff's struggles with cancer and his against the odds success with revolutionary treatment. Jeff's story is a must for all cancer patients.
Jeff’s story is very inspirational and full of hope. It’s a reminder that one should never give up but stay open to new opportunities no matter how unfamiliar they may seem.
Very informative. Jeffrey has dedicated himself to the healing.
Your book was quite inspiring due to the fact that although faced with an uncertain future, you were able to gain access to an experimental treatment that has allowed your body to rid itself of the cancer. The fact that these types of treatments are being researched, and in this case, successful, will bring a great deal of hope to other cancer sufferers. Your book was easy to read, but the central message was clear. Congratulations on your achievement.
Really enjoyed the book...couldn’t put it down. Easy to read. As a breast cancer patient myself, I can relate to the cancer journey. A real story, highly recommended...
Inspiring, Courageous, Motivated, Positivity and Hope are words that come to mind. I recommend that the book be read by everyone basically. Have passed the book to a friend with cancer. My own brother was diagnosed with Stage IV NHL a few years back, and was inspired at the time by Jeffrey’s journey. Chris is now fully recovered.
Thank you for your wonderful book. I have just finished reading it (the first book I have read in years other than sports books). Now my husband wants to read it, then I will pass on to the hospital.
Everyone has a story,not just about beating the grim reaper,but what filters through is a positve journey through lifes adversative.When you believe it you see it! An inspiring read.
Nicely written and inspirational. A cord will be touched within every reader. So compelling I read it in one sitting. Jeff's journey is one where he has successfully not let this disease actually make him sick. Go Jeff!
A courageous and positive book written with compassion and intelligence. A great read!
A compelling story, I couldn’t put the book down. Impressed with Jeffrey's family history. I am open to the references to Mediums in his book. Found the book to be truly inspirational.
This book is very engaging and encouraging not only for cancer patients, but for everyone who has or may in the future be dealing with cancer or with family or friends who have cancer.Thanks Jeff for sharing your experience with others to help them conquor their fears and to give an insight what to say and what not to say to people in this situation.
I met Jeff while travelling around Australia with my four children. He looked remarkably young and healthy for someone his age. I am an advocate of Natural Hygiene, which steers clear of conventional and alternative treatments. However, if I was diagnosed with cancer, regardless of adhering to the principle of Natural Hygiene, I would definitely be open to the treatment that Jeff had. A must read, not just for those with cancer.
