It all begins with Steve McQueen. When it comes to Hollywood and cancer, it always begins with Steve McQueen…He was the movie star who wouldn’t say die. Stricken with terminal lung cancer a generation ago, he traveled to Mexico for unconventional treatments, including laetrile, the natural cure, in an attempt to save his life.

Steve McQueen did not survive. But decades later, Hollywood's royalty still refuse to take death for an answer. And they continue to bypass the American medical establishment in favor of alternatives to conventional treatments that can be as punishing as the disease.

The difference is that now, the alternatives work. These new experimental treatments are not carried out by charlatans with quack cures, but by world-renowned, pioneering MDs, combining various protocols and philosophies for proven results.

Hudson, Brett

Now you can have the opportunity to hear a story of celebrity medical tourism told first-hand by a Hollywood player whose life was saved by medical tourism. This November at the 6th World Medical Tourism & Global Healthcare Congress, Brett Hudson will share his inspiring story of how he traveled thousands of miles in order to defeat cancer, proving that even celebrities can benefit from medical tourism.

Brett starred on the CBS prime-time series, The Hudson Brothers Show, the summer replacement for The Sonny & Cher Comedy Hour that put them on the map and began a friendship with Cher that flourishes to this day. In 2007, he was diagnosed with Stage Four throat cancer.

After struggling with cancer treatment in the US, his friend Cher referred him to a doctor in Germany. He was joined in Germany by Farrah Fawcett, who he lovingly refers to as his cancer buddy. They traveled and were treated together, shooting video along the way in order to use the experience to help others.
