In brief: No

What are you planning to chelate? Chelation is appropriate treatment for some heavy metal poisonings, e.
g., arsenic, and lead. There is no objective evidence for the effectiveness of chelation therapy for any other ailments.

This one's a cynical fraud.
I hope you can get a surgical cure; otherwise, radiation or chemotherapy might help before it comes time for palliative care. Don't reward a sweet "natural medicine" or dark "conspiracy talk" person who's telling you things that aren't true.
