“The oncologist offered nothing in the way of hope, just the option of more of the same chemo that I’d already had and him telling me it’s unlikely I’ll live as long a life as I should…


“Luckily his pessimism led me on to this new path. Research commenced immediately after that appointment and I started my new alternative regime shortly after…


“I am currently waiting to start a gene targeted therapy trial with a drug called Delta Rex but in the meantime my alternative treatment regime is having great results……

Tumors have shrunk by 33% so far

Dear Dr. Gordon,

I’m overjoyed to hear your news and will always support you in every way I can. Sounds like you have been successful once again and my prayers are being answered. Your path has not been easy and I’m grateful that you held on to your plan for saving lives. If it were not for you I would not be here to help you. You RESTORED my life and allowed me to have QUALITY of life. I’m forever indebted to you.

A brief recap of my survival: Pancreatic surgery in 2006. Recurrence in 2008. Rexin-G 2008-2009. Please let me know more about the program and how I can help you and other people.

Rosario Lazo’s Testimony (10 year pancreas cancer survivor)

Excerpts from Rosario’s testimony (full text below):

“It’s been ten years since I was first diagnosed with a life threatening disease, pancreatic cancer at the terminal stage.”

Rosario in 2019

“At first, I had my doubts because the drug was on clinical trial. What encouraged me to experience DeltaRex-G was the fact that it kills only the targeted cells and spares the normal ones.”

“I prayed hard that whatever will be the outcome, it will be for the good of humanity , to prove that it can cure the disease so that others too can try or to refine the drug so that it will be more effective to combat cancer.”

Rosario in 2009

Rosario in 2009

“On the first day, I sat on a comfortable chair and a nurse gave me a dose of the drug through intravenous injection. The administration of DeltaRex-G took only ten minutes. I didn’t feel any pain or discomfort…no forms of discomfort such as nausea, vomiting, or loss of appetite. I could go to places where I want to without any hassle and do some routine jobs like any other normal person.”

“In general, the changes were awe-inspiring. CT scan results show that the tumor had shrank considerably in the pancreas and liver after a month.”

Dr. Jorge Ignacio (Rosario’s oncologist):

“Mrs. Lazo’s recovery is very dramatic and it’s something you cannot refute because that’s pancreatic cancer. We all know that it doesn’t usually respond very well to treatment.”

Mond Florida's Testimony (10 year osteosarcoma survivor)

Excerpts from Mond’s testimony (full text below):

“Rexin-G was the last medical treatment I had and as of now that is nearing a decade in the past. The stability in my condition that it was able to provide me is priceless.”

“More often than not cancer patients have to go through all the “usual” treatments like chemo, radiation and medical operation and only when everything seems lost do they look into these non-traditional treatments. I truly believe that if we make treatments like this more accessible and available to cancer patients, there is a big chance that it can really help.”

“Apart from the usual tests periodically done (CT scans, blood tests etc.), the actual treatment itself is surprisingly easy and stress free (which is, in my opinion, a very positive aspect of the treatment)…The daily routine is quite simple and not time consuming…the patient can go back to his normal routine after the treatment without being hampered by any side effects.”

Mond with his family in 2018

“Being able to live a normal life for nearly a decade now is a win against cancer by itself. It is a miracle that I can only hope more cancer patients can experience as well.”

A Tribute to Jim Finn

James B. Finn (February 9,1949 - January 20, 2018) of Wofford Heights, CA, was a celebrated PGA golf professional who was employed for over 25 years and dearly loved by the Red Hill Country Club members. On October 23, 2018, a Ladies Golf Tournament was held at the Red Hill Country Club in Rancho Cucamonga in honor of Jim who died of rhabdomyosarcoma.  Jim was treated at the Cancer Center of Southern California/Sarcoma Oncology Center in Santa Monica CA and participated in a Phase 1/2 clinical trial aimed at vaccinating him against his sarcoma. His wife, Tina, made it her mission to raise money towards finding a cure for sarcoma.

Jackie Pancari's Testimony (22 year breast cancer survivor)

Thank you so much for your kind words. I am so glad you enjoyed the video. It feels good to be working again, my bones are stronger. Honestly, I never thought I would blow glass again.

And, I want you to know how grateful and thankful I am to have had the opportunity to use rexin-g and reximmune-C. I know without a doubt that these drugs have contributed to my longevity.

Thank you so much,

kindest regards,

Letter from Sandra Aveni Pohlmann

I wanted to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Marc Aveni’s sister, as you may have guessed by the name. I am in regular contact with my cousins in Italy and have updated them on your efforts.

Thank you for the creating and sharing the Foundation and its website. It is has been dutifully updated and the Foundation itself is a touching tribute to our Uncle.

I remember when he was very ill and we thought it was his time. Having already lost my father to prostate cancer it was unfortunately a familiar feeling. I was amazed to hear he had improved and in fact was doing quite well. The Lord took him naturally years later. I now know this was thanks to you and your work.

If your research can benefit all those in need, regardless of income or location, this would be a true miracle. Please let me know if I can be of any assistance to you and your efforts. My husband Jeff and I are happy to help in any way we can.

Letter from MF's nurse (MF, 10 year osteosarcoma survivor)

Hi Dr Gordon,

Visited Mond this afternoon. He was very happy to see me. Told the family about Fr Aveni's ongoing Beatification. Mond is very willing to write his good experience with Rexin-g [sic]. He is no longer taking any medicines. He still has PEG for feeding. But he can still swallow liguids very well. He loves soup and coffee. He was 23 years old when he started Rexin -G treatment. Now he is 34 years old, energetic and happy.

Best regards,
Evangeline C. Penas, RN

Appreciation and Gratitude (Letter from Fr. Jessie Martirizar)

Dearest everyone behind the Aveni Foundation,

I would like to express my deepest appreciation and gratitude for the wonderful things you have been doing in honour of our beloved Fr. Joseph Aveni, especially with the establishment of this Foundation under his name. It goes without saying that Fr. Aveni will intercede for this noble initiative in favour of needy cancer patients. On my part I can assure you of my constant prayers so that the good Lord will bless this noble endeavour.
