Oklahoma grandfather who claims a drug for DOGS cured him of 'head-to-toe'
cancer is tumor-free two years after doctors gave him three months to live


In January 2017, Joe Tippens was certain that he would die of small cell lung

But then a veterinarian suggested he try something unconventional, to say the
least: a drug for dogs.

The medication, fenbendazole, is an anti-worm compound used to treat
hookworms, roundworms and other gut parasites in animals, primarily dogs.

In recent years, studies suggesting anti-worm drugs might have
cancer-fighting properties have been cropping up in a growing number of

It's far from a proven treatment, but with three months to live and nothing
to lose, Joe decided to take a chance on it.

Joe was diagnosed with small cell lung cancer in 2016, turning his plans
upside down, just two days before he was set to move to Switzerland from

He kept up a fighting attitude, but in January 2017, he got the news that no
one is prepared to hear.

The aggressive cancer was everywhere. It had spread to his liver, pancreas,
bladder, stomach, neck and bones.

His PET scan 'lit up like a Christmas tree,' he says on his website.

At that late stage of small cell lung cancer, Joe's odds of survival were
less than one percent, and the average life expectancy was three months.

He had a trans-Atlantic move planned. He was expecting a grandson. And now
everything had to come to a halt.

Doctors at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Texas told him they wouldn't give up,
and would put him in a clinical trial that wouldn't save Joe, but might give
him a year or so to live.

He might get to meet his grandson.

'A year (or so) sounds a lot better than 3 months, so I said "let's go for
it,"' Joe writes.

Browsing an online forum for his alma mater, Oklahoma State University, Joe
saw a post that caught his eye that same month: 'If you have cancer or know
someone who does, give me a shout.'

He did, and from the poster, a veterinarian, he learned that scientists had
accidentally discovered that a dog de-worming drug seemed to combat many
cancers in mice.

The same scientist that had conducted that research, as it happened, had
stage 4 brain cancer, and the same prognosis Joe had been given, according to
the vet.

She started popping the dog pills, and within six weeks, as the vet told it,
the scientist's cancer was gone.

Joe, who was 'a skeleton with skin hanging off of it' at half his previous
weight, he told KOCO 5 News, placed an order of fenbendazole.

His new dosage of dog pills cost just $5 a week. His insurance company had
spent '$1.2 million on me with traditional means,' he said.

According to a study published in Nature, the drug compound essentially
starves cancer cells and kills them.

It also is, of course, already in production, cheaper, and, according to cell
studies and reports from people who have tried it, not very toxic, especially
compared to chemo and immunotherapies.

That said, it was a risk.

Joe stayed in the clinical trial (he does not disclose what therapy he
received) added vitamin E, CBD, bioavailable curcumin and, of course, the dog

He didn't mention the de-worming drug to his doctors.

In May, Joe's first grandchild, Luke, was born. Joe was there to meet him.

Two-and-a-half weeks later, he had another PET scan.

'Three months earlier...There was cancer in my body from head to toe. And it
was a terrifyingly dangerous metastasis that leaves virtually 100% of its
victims dead within 3 months. Here I was 3 months later and the PET scan was
completely dark......void of any light.....anywhere,' Joe writes.

He was dumbfounded. His oncologist was dumbfounded, according to Joe's

Joe writes that his doctor told him, 'We don't quite know what to make of
this as you are the only patient on the clinical trial with this kind of

In September 2017, Joe went for yet another scan, and was still cancer free.
At last he told his doctor what he'd been doing outside the hospital.

There was no way at that point to prove that it was the de-worming drug that
vanished Joe's cancer, but his doctor did tell him that he was an 'outlier'
of the trial, Joe writes.

Joe's final scan was taken in January of 2018, and when he had a follow-up
appointment that April, he writes that his oncologist kicked him out of the
cancer center - because Joe had no cancer to treat.

His results seem too-good-to-be true, but Joe claims to have collected over
40 examples of similar success stories.

And his results were good enough to pique the interest of the president of
the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation, Dr Stephen Prescott.

'I'm usually skeptical, and I was and maybe still am about this one, but
there's interesting background on this' he told KOCO.

Now, Dr Prescott and Joe are working on a case study report, according to

Joe is careful to note that he's not a doctor, and is 'only one man with
limited resources.'

'I am not prescribing medicine and I am not qualified to give advice on
medical treatments.

'BUT.....I am qualified to tell my story to as many people as possible.'
