Regional Chemotherapy saves lives of two Toronto men

Prof. Karl Aigner's remarkable treatment targets deadly tumours

TORONTO, Dec. 13, 2016 /CNW/ - Christmas came early for Gerald Kopitowski – in July he was given four months to live after being diagnosed with aggressive oral cancer that ravaged his tongue and throat, preventing him from eating and talking, and eventually breathing. He lost 80 lbs. in mere months.

"I'd be dead by now. Wouldn't be seeing Christmas, if it weren't for Dr. Karl Aigner treating me with Regional Chemotherapy," says Gerald. "By the time I got to his clinic in Germany, I was just skin and bones. After only two treatments, the tumour disappeared, my tongue is in place and I can talk and eat my steak again."

Gerald is one of many cancer survivors indebted to the Prof. Dr. med. Karl R. Aigner, a leading German oncologist. Prof. Aigner has been practicing Regional Chemotherapy (RCT) for over thirty years and has experienced remarkable success rates at his private clinic in Burghausen. He uses RCT to target specific tumours, rather than the entire body, leaving healthy cells intact, while reducing side effects in comparison with systemic chemotherapy. See for more information on RCT.

A new social campaign #damagecancer by Medias Health Inc., a company that represents Prof. Aigner's clinic in North America and beyond, is drawing Canadian attention to this revolutionary treatment in hopes of one day having it here. Michael Shribman, founder and president of Medias Health Inc., has made it his life's mission to enlighten Canadians and the medical community about RCT. In late September 2016 Michael flew Prof. Aigner to Toronto to present on the breakthrough methodology.

"I've seen it work firsthand – it's like a miracle," said Michael, whose sister's stage 4 cancer was treated in Germany by Prof. Aigner. Svetlana Shraibman was given a death sentence here in Canada – today she is still fighting, working and is a happy and active mom to her two young children.

Karmi Posner was also a dead man walking – until he underwent Regional Chemotherapy. Conventional treatment in Canada had failed. In August his surgery in Toronto was cancelled because his tonsil cancer had progressed too far. "They said you may see Christmas, but you won't see summer, and then they sent him home to die," said his wife, Ilona. She just returned from visiting her husband who is being treated by Prof. Aigner at Medias Klinikum, a private hospital in Germany.

"Karmi's had amazing, amazing results! He's expected home soon – you can't get a better Christmas present than that," said Ilona. "It's ridiculous that it (RCT) is not available in Canada. It could help so many people."

And Gerald couldn't be happier with his progress – he is speaking, eating and loving life. "They wanted to cut my tongue out, take flesh from my side to rebuild a new tongue, put in a breathing apparatus and a tube in my side for food – it just didn't sound like good quality of life!"

Gerald's wife, Gail Smith-Kopitowski, had heard about Prof. Aigner's visit to Canada, and desperately reached out to Medias Health Inc. for help to get her husband to the clinic in Germany. Gail's request was expedited by Medias Health as critical, and within three days she and Gerald were on their way to Germany; and soon after Karmi followed.

The clinic is filled with optimism, report patients. Round-the-clock care, professional staff, a state-of-the-art technology, and Prof. Aigner's expertise and kindness make it a place of healing and hope. "Now our life is just beginning thanks to Prof. Aigner," added Ilona. "I am grateful, thankful and hopeful."
