Timmy Matley dies at age 36

A special tribute to our beautiful friend and Prue’s Place community member, Timmy Matley.

It is with the greatest sadness that I announce today at Prue’s Place Daily that our dear friend Timmy Matley has died. I knew last week that Timmy had died but I needed to gather my thoughts and do more research before I could write to you all.

This is what has gone viral on the Internet.

Millions of people around the world are grieving at the sudden death of our friend Timmy Matley at age 36. Timmy was born in Cork, Ireland and he moved to London with a dream of becoming a star.

Excerpt: The Times, London:

The singer who found fame after facing discrimination

Timmy Matley and his friends were working as painters and decorators in a shop in the West End of London when they were heard singing by a record company talent scout during their tea break. They were invited to audition for Warner Music and were offered a five-album deal. Within months the Overtones were in the charts with their debut recording, which sold more than 450,000 copies.

“It sounds like a fairytale when you describe it like that,” recalled Matley, who led the five-piece vocal group. “But that’s what it was, really. We’d been together for a while as a band, and we set up this small painting and decorating company, just so we could get some cash-in-hand, and we got overheard singing. It was an absolute whirlwind.”

Boyishly good looking, smartly suited and booted, and singing harmonies in a style that evoked the vocal groups of the 1950s, the Overtones were likened to “a doo-wop version of Take That”. They recorded four Top Ten albums between 2010 and 2015, toured with Peter Andre and Cliff Richard, and became television regulars.

Their progress was cruelly halted in 2016, however, when Matley was diagnosed with skin cancer and was forced to drop out of a promotional tour for the group’s latest album. The cancer spread and he underwent treatment as part of an immunotherapy drugs trial at the Royal Marsden Hospital, London.

Matley revealed to fans on social media that he was “very afraid of dying” and that he found his illness “emotionally and mentally challenging”. He later reported, more optimistically, that he was “one of the lucky ones”, who had responded “amazingly” to treatment. He was planning a parachute jump for the Royal Marsden Cancer Charity when he died. The circumstances of his death have not been disclosed.

Timothy Thomas Matley was born in Cork City in 1982 and enjoyed telling the story of how his mother, Geraldine, went into labour in the street “as she was walking down to the Credit Union”.

He grew up “surrounded by a lot of strong ladies”, such as his mother, his sister, Audrey, and a bevy of aunts whom he dubbed “the Matley female mafia”. His earliest musical memory was being six years old and being moved to tears as his aunt, Janette, sang traditional Irish songs.

He was educated at Deerpark CBS in Cork, but it was at Farranree Youth Club that he developed his love for making his own costumes and putting on shows that included singing, dancing and comedy sketches. “It stopped you from hanging out in the street corners and was the first time I got to shine,” he said.

He had a less happy experience in the local Catholic church. He was sitting in the congregation one Sunday when a letter from the bishop opposing gay marriage was read out. Matley said the event made him “question if I was welcome in my own church”. He was one of three openly gay members of the Overtones.

At 16 years old he was offered a scholarship to Laine Theatre Arts in Epsom. “I wasn’t having the best time of it in Cork,” he said. “I was different, I wasn’t into football and I was bullied badly, so I took the opportunity and I was off.”

After completing a diploma in musical theatre, he spent a year backpacking around the world. Matley returned to London, where he first formed a band called DYYCE and then Lexi Joe, with Mark Franks, Mike Crawshaw and Darren Everest.

After failing an audition for The X Factor as Lexi Joe, they regrouped as a quintet with the addition of Lachie Chapman. Success was only a decorating job away.

Matley had not lived in Ireland for 20 years, but admitted to a strong sense of nostalgia for Cork and a more relaxed way of Irish life, despite “the closed-mindedness” that had caused him to leave. “Walking past someone, and just saying, ‘Lovely day!’,” he reminisced fondly. “It just doesn’t happen in London. My family do that for me, keep me grounded and I’m thankful.

…And here’s the rest of the story:

Timmy was winning the cancer battle of malignant melanoma (skin cancer)

Timmy was our friend and very fond of Prue’s Place. He loved what we were doing and gave us a shout out in one of his TV interviews in London recently. He was an avid reader of Prue’s Place Daily and he spent the last 15 months in private sessions with me working on the best protocols and treatments to help save his life. He was dedicated to his program and tried his best to keep to a strict scientifically proven nutritional mind-body healing protocol. What was discussed between Timmy and I will stay confidential forever and has a special place in my heart.


“Look at my shirt Prue. I love me now and I approve of myself.”

What I can tell you is that Timmy was diagnosed with stage 3 Malignant Melanoma in 2016 which progressed to stage 4 in 2017. He decided to go to the Gerson Clinic in Mexico where he met our lovely community friend Sue. Sue kindly introduced Timmy to Prue’s Place.

Timmy was doing well on a combination approach which included parts of the Gerson protocol, along with anti-inflammatory nutrition. After an AA/EPA blood test he started on Dr. Barry Sears’ high dose Maqui Berry (polyphenols) and the correct amount of purified fish oils from Bare Biology in the UK, along with Prue’s Place daily meditation, visualization, tips and techniques to reduce stress and emotional healing support and guidance in our weekly sessions. Timmy also chose to go into an Immunotherapy trial at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London. He felt he had all the basis covered.

Timmy had little side effects to the Immunotherapy drugs which we both knew was due to the amazing work he was doing using food as a drug to lower cellular inflammation.

Cancer patients need to decrease mTOR and the most effective way to do this is by reducing calorie intake and the amino acid leucine and increasing high potency polyphenol consumption. Using food as a drug and combining high-dose polyphenols and the right amounts of high-dose purified EPA and DHA will help reduce tumor growth.

Timmy was doing everything in his power to heal from cancer.

Timmy and my relationship grew into a beautiful friendship and he would often send me photos of his family and his travels.

When Sue our friend from Prue’s Place called me to tell me Timmy had died, I was so shocked and immediately searched Google. Of course, the tabloids had jumped to the conclusion that Timmy died of skin cancer. The story had gone viral

I knew this wasn’t true. Timmy’s scans were excellent and his cancer had regressed.





The Express quoted Timmy, “My latest scans look really positive, with most of the cancer in regression, and I’ve got my fingers crossed that when I have my next full scan at Christmas, I will be diagnosed NED (no evidence of disease)”

I kept researching online and found an article in Ireland, his home country, that stated he didn’t die of cancer and that he died from falling off a balcony.

I needed some time to digest what had happened before I could write to you all. I decided to sit back and do some research and get in touch with his friends and colleagues in London so I could bring you the whole story. I’m told they are starting an investigation into his death, and a toxicology report is underway.

I continue to pray and send Timmy love and white healing light as he flies with the angels to heaven.

I’m beyond sad my dear friends and still in shock as I write to you today. Timmy had the world at his feet. His dream of becoming a star had come true, and at 36 he had only just begun to share his magnificence, his talent and love of music with the world.

Timmy was the lead in the famous band The Overtones, and he was so proud of his success. At one of our last sessions, he showed me around his recently renovated home in London on FaceTime. The house was adorable. He was proud of how far he had come in his life.

And Timmy said… “

“Here’s the spare room and it’s waiting for you Prue.”

To darling Timmy,

I miss your beautiful smile and your infectious loveable personality. I miss your cute adorable boyish face at our meetings on FaceTime. I miss having you in my life and helping you on your cancer journey. You did good kiddo. I’m so proud of you.

Heaven’s gain is our earthly planet’s profound, sad loss. Rest in peace, my beautiful, soulful friend.

I’m sharing this story with you all today because Timmy didn’t die of cancer. He was winning his cancer struggle because he got educated and dug deep and with sheer guts, determination, belief in himself and deep love and support from family and friends he was on the right track. We all know how hard it is to stay on course to change our lifestyle to save our lives from this devastating disease. Timmy did the work.

Let’s honor Timmy’s life and let it be an inspiration to us all. Timmy would want you to follow his lead and get educated about what you can do to heal your life. He’d want you to dig deep into your heart and soul and stay focused and on track.

If you are ever feeling down or feel you can’t go on please play Timmy’s song he wrote for the band and send him love and prayers. He will be there for you. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aWsQIpfhbDo

Stop Judging. Stop Being Critical.

Do you judge your friends? When was the last time you had a critical thought?

It doesn’t matter how young or old we are, what we do for a living or where we come from in the world, the color of our skin; our political views or religious beliefs and the language we speak – we all understand the language of love.

We all want to feel love, and when we learn to love ourselves, we can fulfill all our dreams and desires. Nothing holds us back because we trust and love ourselves unconditionally.

Was It Grief, Anger OR Rage?

Grief? Anger? Rage?

We have a major storm bringing heavy snow and hurricane-like winds and blizzard conditions to Boston right now. New Englanders call these storms Nor’easters. The weather report tells us to expect between 12 – 16 inches of snow! All the schools and most businesses are closed today. How appreciative am I to be warm and toasty inside drinking my cup of tea and watching the birds who are covered in snow as they eat one seed at a time from the bird feeder.

Life! We must roll with the punches from sunny tropical days to blizzard snowy conditions. Life is all about staying neutral and going with the flow. “No Flow – No Go.” Read More

Dying To Be Healed Of Cancer – Malignant Melanoma

By | Uncategorized | One Comment

Dying to be healed of cancer – Malignant Melanoma.

I was dying to be healed. My name is Prudence “Prue” Sinclair, and my doctor told me I had 6 months to live.

I was diagnosed with Stage 4 malignant melanoma and given only 6 months to live. That was 28 years ago. But instead of dying, I got educated.

Several surgeries later and given the option of chemotherapy, I decided to ditch traditional treatment and research the world for so-called “alternative medicine.” This was during the 80s, mind you. You couldn’t just hop on the Internet to find information; you had to hop on a plane… which is what I did.

Loneliness is a silent killer.

Loneliness is a silent killer

Did you know that one in five people suffer from loneliness and isolation? Recent research shows that these feelings can cause heart disease, high blood pressure, cancer, depression and many other illnesses.

Your emotional health matters.

Emotions matter more than you realize. You go to your Oncologist because they are experts in cancer drugs – the physical part of cancer. Oncologists did not study nutrition, emotional health and the mind-body connection in medical school. So, you must become educated on how to heal your whole health – your whole life. I requires surrounding yourself with the right healing team.

Mother told me I wasn’t good enough.

Mother told me I wasn’t good enough so I never felt good enough.

When was the last time you sat still and recognized your accomplishments? I’m not talking about physical things like the amount of money you make or the big house you live in with the fancy car in the driveway. I’m talking about the expansion of your soul and the life lessons you’ve learned. If the evolution of our soul is a fact of life, we will want to keep evolving and becoming more aware so we can live a more harmonious and rewarding life.
