Shouldn’t I be dead by now?


Robert Motzel of Australia has raised $26.65 of the $7,613 ($10,000 AUD) goal in seeking funds to spread his story about surviving cancer. The deadline for this campaign is August 13.

For a $20 AUD (about $15 USD) pledge, the donor will receive a free copy of his book, Shouldn’t I be Dead Now. The book will be shipped anywhere in the world around February 2017.

“They gave me a year or two to live with the cancer,” Motzel stated. “Seven years later outside the western medical system, I feel great.”

Motzel, a 68-year old male, lives on an Australian old age pension because his retirement funds were swallowed up trying to win his fight against cancer for the past seven.

“I think my story is something that needs to be told,” Motzel asserted. “I do not claim to have the cure for cancer as I believe there is no ‘one size fits all’ in beating cancer. This is one of many mistakes that our medical system makes.”

Funds donated through the website will fund his project is to write the story of his journey through seven years with cancer.

He eventually rejected the Western medical system which he claims led him to discover the true problem of what cancer is and how people get it.

“It is a total change of perspective to the way people are treated, who suffer cancer,” Motzel said. “But I truly do believe I have found a way and perspective that could very well lead to an end of all cancer.”

After publishing his book, Motzel said he plans to go on lecture tours to tell people in greater detail and answer any questions readers might have.

“I see no risks or challenges to my project because it is a story of self-discovery and makes no claim that I am right in curing cancer,” according to Motzel. “It is mainly about changing the perspective of what cancer is. The story does not tell people how to fight cancer, quite the opposite.”

He has lived and Darwin, in northern Australia, and worked as a shipwright for over forty years.

“Building yachts and making maps of nearby Indonesian islands, like the map of Timor Island in my profile photo,” Motzel said. “That took two years to make. I like the simple life and traveling to the Asian countries too our near North, to make maps for the people, who have never seen an image of their own Island.”

Motzel said he has a natural inclination for turning negatives into positives, which is one primary reason he gave for writing his book and have it printed in multiple languages. “So people might find useful information in it.”
