SAN DIEGO, Nov. 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- In honor of National Lung Cancer Awareness month, Hope4Cancer Treatment Centers™ announces Eight Days, a groundbreaking reality TV series that tells the stories of five cancer patients and their journey using alternative cancer treatments that are working. The first reality TV series of its kind, Eight Days, is set to premiere on the FYI Network on January 4, 2020 and will give viewers an inside look at what healing from cancer is really like, as well as highlight new integrative cancer treatment options.

“Eight Days examines the lives of five diverse individuals living with different stages of cancer and the experts who guide them on their healing journey. From physical, emotional, and spiritual healing, as well as, how to treat the root of cancer instead of the symptoms. We also see the latest breakthroughs in non-toxic cancer treatments that are having real impact on the disease,” explained Hope4Cancer Founder and Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Antonio Jimenez.

The five patients highlighted in the series include Kate Malvenan, diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer. The 39-year old solo mother from Australia’s Gold Coast is determined to beat cancer for her 3-year-old daughter, Annabelle. At the time of her original diagnosis, Kate was given only six months to live, with cancer spreading throughout her spine, hips, ribs, shoulder, and liver. Refusing to give up, she arrives on Eight Days ready to embrace change with the spirit of a warrior and the strength of a mother.

“If I wasn’t a mom, I think I would have taken the diagnosis and just handled it gracefully. But being a parent, I’ve taken the gloves off, and I’m ready to fight this,” says Kate Malvenan, cancer patient, Eight Days.

Additional patients include:

  • 43-year old Carrie Crary, an active, health-conscious nurse who battles Breast Cancer for the second time.
  • 66-year old Jose Fernandez, a pastor diagnosed with Prostate Cancer.
  • 41-year old Nicole Randle who works to overcome Stage 3 Ovarian Cancer.
  • 57-year old Janine Jannicelli who is diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

“We partnered with film producer, Charles Mattocks, to help us share our patients’ stories, because we know of his work as a health advocate and appreciate his passion for investigative storytelling,” added Jimenez.

Charles Mattocks is an award-winning film producer who garnered media attention for his first docuseries, Reversed, where he focused on the health effects of diabetes. With over 1.7 million cancer diagnoses documented per year in the U.S. alone, Mattock takes on a health topic where the show’s content and information have the power and potential to affect millions of lives.

“It’s a show unlike anything that’s been seen before, with cancer survivors who share it all and experts who lovingly guide them to health and healing,” stated Jimenez.
