Filip and Kathleen

Filip and Kathleen


Filip (or Philip) Coppens is an author and investigative journalist, ranging from the world of politics to ancient history and mystery. He co-hosts The Spirit Revolution radio show with his wife Kathleen McGowan and is a frequent contributor to NEXUS Magazine and Atlantis Rising Magazine. Since 1995, he has lectured extensively and has appeared in a number of television and DVD documentaries, including Ancient Aliens: The Series (The History Channel). Kathleen’s dynamic publishing career began with the debut of her novel, The Expected One, and continued with other equally bestselling works such as The Book of Love, The Poet Prince, The Source of Miracles, and her newest work, The Ballad of Tam Lin. This amazing couple has blended their many talents and generously share their wisdom of sacred places around the world through a tour company that they created in 2011. Filip and Kathleen, through their actions and example, have shown many the miracle and power of pure love. They have already changed the lives of thousands of spiritually minded souls through their various works and activities. People around the globe consider themselves part of a large and loving Spirit Family because of the beautiful union of this couple. Anyone who knows them can attest to how generous Filip and Kathleen are with their time, their knowledge, and their love.


Now the time has come for us, as friends and as a community, to create a miracle for them. Suffering from a sudden and unexplainable illness, Filip was just hospitalized three weeks ago and just recently diagnosed with a rare cancer called angiosarcoma, which attacks the inner lining of blood vessels. While the causes still remain unknown, the results are usually fast-growing and highly aggressive tumors. Because of the tendency to recur near the original site, surgery is the primary treatment, with chemotherapy and/or radiation therapy both before and after. So much is still unknown about this rare disease, accounting for only 0.1% of adult malignancies. Filip and his family have very bravely faced the numerous tests and specialists, especially now during this holiday season. There have already been surgeries performed and he is undergoing traditional treatments. He remains hospitalized and the levels of pain vary from day to day. Their love and spiritual belief has helped Filip and Kathleen through so far, though the path of treatments stretches out very far into the distance. One of the major road blocks for them is the high costs that this rare cancer will incur. His medical bills alone from the last month have already reached into the hundreds of thousands of US dollars and are still climbing. This does not even begin to include future alternative or traditional treatments he will continue to need.

So many people  have sent in suggestions for alternative clinics and therapies, and they are currently investigating all of these options.  However, many of these alternative and progressive clinics carry the same out of pocket costs as a hospital without insurance.  In order to get Filip into the best clinic as quickly as possible, it would require a significant cash deposit. Given the overwhelming hospital expenses they currently have (nearing the one million mark), this is currently not a possibility – without your help.
There is also a strong possibility that the best treatment options for Philip are back in his home continent of Europe.  However, his current lung condition will not allow him to fly on a commercial airline and he would need a specifically pressurized medical transport vehicle.  The cost to transport him back to Europe from Los Angeles alone is over $20,000 US dollars.

The outpouring of love and well wishes sent through emails, phone, cards, and online are amazing to see, and requests have already started regarding how the spiritual “family” can help. Our hope with this first, of probably many, fundraising efforts is to create a miracle we want to give people a way to become part of Filip’s healing process by donating money towards the necessary expenses. The current goal is really only a small drop in the bucket of what will be needed to assist Filip and Kathleen down the path of healing. We are hoping that we will be able to meet the goal quickly (thus the short deadline) to allow them at least a little relief. After it is met, we can then again assess what is needed and continue on with additional fundraising efforts.
This recovery for Filip is going to be a process and any small amount that can be given will be greatly appreciated. Sharing this page and spreading the word is just as important. Whether you join us in creating this miracle now by donating or in a future effort, every small action of love will play a part in making a difference.
