After marrying in 2010, she left the corporate world and took a year off working to recover from feeling burned out. Having always been interested in nutrition, health, exercise and human motivation, it seemed a logical step to move into the health and wellness field, and help others avoid the burnout resulting from their busy lives.

The late Albert Fay Hill spent decades trying to find a cure for cancer. His son David Hill joins eHealth Radio and the Cancer Prevention and Health News Channels to discuss his father’s research and his life long quest.

Listen to interview with host Eric Michaels & guest David Hill discuss the following:

  • Your late father, Albert Fay Hill, spent most of his life trying to find a cure for cancer. How did this all start? Where did this passion come from?
  • Tell me about your Dad – I understand he had medical expertise, was not a doctor, he was a lay person – be he would go on to become a lifelong student of cancer -- researching this disease for decades.  How did your father go about researching a cure for cancer?
  • I understand he developed a therapy that he believed could reset the immune system to recognize and attack tumors.  Can you give us some topline thoughts on this?
  • What do you think that this was so promising about his research and that the medical community should consider?
  • How do you want people to remember your father?

Duration: 8:49

The late Albert Fay Hill was passionate about finding a cure for cancer when his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in the late 60s.  He had no medical training - just a curious mind.  He spent thousands of hours studying cancer research and developed a therapy he believed could reset the immune system to recognize and attack tumors.  He came to believe that the correct sequence and timing of GIK therapy could increase lymphocyte effectiveness and mount a defense against cancer. Years ago, this research was published in the Journal of Immune Based Therapies and Vaccines.  He had the dream to have his protocol tested.  His family remembers him as a man with incredible courage and his relentless love.  The family believes that this research has a lot of promise and potential.

David Hill is an information technology specialist for the State of Michigan.  He works with the department of Management, Budget and Technology to adopt and maintain IT to support State services.  He lives in Michigan and he has published two science fiction books, with his father, years ago, and has written several full length novels on his own.
