LXM Humanitarian Foundation

Giving Hope and Extending Life

The Life Extension Medicine Humanitarian Foundation (LXMHF) is committed to “Giving Hope and Extending Life” by assisting AMC in treating patients who do not have the funds to receive life-saving treatment.

LXMHF was specifically set up to provide hope and offer a second chance to people suffering from extremely debilitating diseases, where they were given a “death sentence” by being told that there was no further medical treatment available, or their medical treatment had failed and the patient was either sent home to die, or referred to a hospice, or told that they would have to live with their chronic disorder, as well as the pain and suffering, for the rest of their life.

AMC has witnessed many success stories, despite the fact that many of the patients were told that they cannot be cured. Patients from all walks of life and many countries throughout the world have been treated through the LXMH Foundation and AMC’s dedicated professionals.

LXMHF was established by Dr. Bret Phillips and Ms. Melanie Taylor in 2014, as a means to assist unfortunate individuals who suffer from a terminal disease or severely debilitating chronic disease, by giving them hope and an opportunity to be healed, or to improve their chronic condition, or to extend their life with quality and dignity.

While LXMHF is governed by a board of dedicated professionals, Dr. Phillips is still at the helm of the Foundation’s activities with some board members employed by AMC.  LXMHF has been funded by the founders as well as benevolent individuals and corporate donors.

These patients desperately seek the help and financial assistance of philanthropic and benevolent individuals, organizations, charities, churches, and corporations.

Donated funds, no matter how small or large, are used to pay for treatment programs. A patient’s treatment program can range from R5,000 – R15,000 per week and the average length of treatment is 4 to 12 weeks. If patients respond well to treatment, for example, remission, marked improvement, or stabilisation of their condition, then they enter the maintenance and monitoring phase of the treatment program where they consult weekly or monthly for treatment and assessments, or they continue with treatment in their home towns. Donor funding is also used for research and the development of medical devices which may assist with the treatment of these life-threatening and debilitating diseases.

Life X Med Humanitarian Foundation


The Board and Committee is responsible for assessing and vetting each candidate who has a terminal, life threatening or incurable chronic disease, to determine if they qualify for financial support for the treatment program at the Advanced Life Therapies Care International Medical Centre in Pretoria East, because of their indigent status, or inability to pay in full or part, of the essential treatment program.
