The gift of hope.

How It Works

  • Cancer survivors who reached healing via integrative & holistic methods create free, personalized videos for cancer patients.
  • Patients and/or their loved ones can request a video from a survivor whose diagnosis closely matches theirs.

Looking to Request a Video?

  • If you or a loved one is looking for inspiration and guidance, check out the Survivor Videos page and select a free, personalized video from the survivor who most closely matches what you need.
  • After you complete your order, you'll receive an email with a link to provide further context on your diagnosis and situation to the survivor as they make your video.
  • Our survivors typically aim to create your video within 3-5 days.
  • In addition to the survivor's personalized video, you'll also receive a general video from the GoingWell team on the best integrative approaches we've seen for you to consider.

GoingWell's Story

  • When Christian & Jon were navigating the path towards Christian's healing that conventional medicine called impossible, it took months of research & reaching out to find patients who had successfully walked in Christian's shoes before him.
  • When they did find these stories & studies, they were extremely powerful pieces in their healing journey. GoingWell aims to make it far easier for the next patient to pursue their own healing success by bringing this guidance to you.
  • Here on the site are survivors who have overcome various diseases via integrative & holistic methods and offered up their time to share their story, methods, and guidance to others. These cancer survivors are compensated for their time to put together these personalized videos via donations to GoingWell.

You've Got This!

  • So many people have changed their lives by learning all the options available to them as they make their own choices for their personal healing journey. We hope you find what you need to take the best next step on yours.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is GoingWell?

GoingWell is a collection of survivors creating gift videos for people going through difficult chronic diseases, such as cancer.

Our chronic disease survivors have incredibly moving stories. Each of them had a debilitating illness with a poor prognosis, and took key steps to "beat the odds." A video from a survivor like this is an incredibly powerful gift to the next person in their shoes in empowering them to consider all their healing options and make their own best choices, which is the mission of GoingWell

How does it work?

Search for a survivor with the same or similar disease as yourself or your loved one, and go through the free ordering flow.

After confirmation, you'll receive an email with a form to provide further information about the disease/diagnosis/situation, allowing the survivor to have the best possible context when making their video.

The survivor will typically finish the video in 3-5 days, and then you'll receive an email from GoingWell with your video. You'll also receive info on how to connect further with the survivor if you would like to do so.

How do I share additional context around the diagnosis & situation?

After you confirm your order, you'll receive via email an information form to provide context about the diagnosis and situation to the survivor.

The more detail you are able to provide on the form, the better our survivor can tailor their message.

Can I request a video for someone else?

Yes, absolutely! You are more than welcome to request a video for yourself or a loved one.

Is this for the holistic healing community only?

Not necessarily. Our survivors have powerful stories. The majority of our survivors turned to holistic, alternative, natural and lifestyle approaches because they ran out of conventional medical options.

Their stories of hope & inspiration land with anyone, whether they end up taking a similar approach or not!

How does GoingWell provide videos for free? Can I donate?

GoingWell is a non-profit that relies on donations to compensate cancer survivors for their time & effort to create personalized videos to help the next person setting out on their healing journey. If you are able to donate, you can consider doing so as you confirm your order, but it is entirely optional!

How can I sign up as a survivor?

If you have a powerful healing story and would like to share it with others, you can apply to join GoingWell here!

  • Gift for John, Father of 3 with Amyloidosis (Multiple Myeloma)

    As a father of three, John was diagnosed with AL Amyloidosis, a cancer similar to Multiple Myeloma.

    A friend and business relationship noticed that John's challenging chemo regimen had him understandably feeling down. He requested a video (can be seen here), which John was over the moon with gratitude to receive, and after a month testing out various integrative treatments, his blood tests showed a 50% drop in disease markers!
