I have been volunteering for them for over 3 years now. I have been doing data entry and other things as well. It is fun to be there and you get to know them. My hours there are flexible. Great place to volunteer as i found them on www.volunteermatch.com
I found Dr. Silberstein's Cancer Coaching Course online. I am a cancer survivor and want to help others through the process.
Susan's dedication to cancer education for over 30 years is remarkable. While many organizations claim to be patient-oriented, this organization is. Coaching services are free of charge if the patient cant pay. Otherwise, it is on a donation basis.
The quality of the education and resources is very high, and geared towards patients - not doctors or health professionals. The organization not only educates patients, but empowers them!
I am very proud to be a Certified Cancer Coach and be associated with the Center for Advancement of Cancer Education.
When our youngest daughter was diagnosed with leukemia at age 4 I didn't know where to turn. We already ate organically and were focusing on a healthy lifestyle, but the toxic treatment of cancer left me reeling as a seemingly helpless mother of four with one very ill daughter. The center was an amazing resource and support as I had weekly nutritional counseling sessions to help our daughter improve her immune system during treatments. After two and a half years of treatment the center then helped connect me with a homeopath familiar with healing after chemotherapy. This center is one of a kind and they touched our lives at a very difficult time. You can see Maggie's end of chemo video on vimeo.com by searching "Congrats Maggie". The Modern Family guys are on the front. Inspirational!
I first met Dr Susan Silberstein at a Juice Plus+ event. I had the privilege of speaking with her and found her so warm and caring. I began to read about her and check out her website. When I found out about her training and offer to become a certified Holistic Cancer Educator, I called her. She answered her phone, was so gracious and answered my questions.
I signed up and have learned so much from her and am so blessed to now be sharing her wisdom with others to guide and support them during their time of need.
I also had the opportunity to speak with one of the staff members, Nikki, and she was so kind and helpful.
Dr Silberstein and her staff are caring people and only want to help cancer patients and give them hope. Thank you for all you do. I am honored to be one of your ambassadors.
I ran across Beatcancer.org while doing a google search. I was looking for a way to help one of my clients that was helping their grandchild go through cancer treatment. Even though I am an owner of Simply Healthy and Nurses Online Academy. I wasn't educationally qualified to give my client the information she needed on cancer care. So there I was, looking for information. I was so excited when I started looking over all that they had to offer. Even a "holistic cancer coaching certification"....which you guessed it...I quickly took and completed. What better way to be able to educate my client. I am forever thankful that I found such an upstanding non-profit and will always be supportive. They keep it personal and I like the feel of that. I can only imagine how it would feel to have them help me if I came to them because I had cancer. Dr. Susan Silberstein is an outstanding individual. She takes "caring" seriously. Her staff is amazing to work with. I can't say enough. ~ Sandra Bullard
As a cancer VICTOR/SURVIVOR for over 45 years I am so grateful that this organisation exists for all cancer patients and families to learn that cancer is a survivable disease and not a death sentence filling patients with fear. It is through information, education and increased knowledge and loving support we learn to trust that we can take charge of our own health and lives. see mystory on their website blog.

A while back I worked for several years at the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education, as a volunteer and then on staff, offering counseling and psychological services. I was always impressed with the sensitivity, knowledge and care for patients. I was especially impressed with the many circumstances in which I observed meaningful improvement in patient health, often despite negative prognoses of the attending physicians.
I learned about BeatCancer.org while attending a conference on preventative health care. I found the people to be extremely attentive, passionate and helpful. Their educational materials and research are thorough. I'm grateful to have these resources to share with my own clients. I am also committed to following preventative care rather than the traditional American sick care system. Thank you BeatCancer.org for giving us choices.
Beatcancer.org was my lifeline in 2010 when I found a 'lump' in my breast, and now cancer was up close and personal. I already knew the path I wasn't taking after watching my sister endure chemo/mastectomy, and another young friend pass from her leukemia treatments. I met Dr Silberstein at her booth at my first Juice Plus conference, 1 month after my discovery, and starting my holistic healing journey. I was assigned to Dr Randy, who helped me have the faith needed to stay the course with God's healing of plants, exercise, sunshine, water, attitude of gratitude, etc. I support beatcancer.org wholeheardedly, as they are making a difference directly with those seeking answers, whether they chose the allopathic/chemo route or completely holistic. I recommend them in my speaking engagements as a health advocate and 6 year cancer overcomer! NO chemo, radiation, surgery. They are my hero's !
I learned of BeatCancer.org through my Juice Plus association, and met Dr Silverstein in person at a conference. At that time I had just learned I had a 'lump' in my breast, and was gathering information. I was so excited and impressed with her knowledge and energy, I contacted BeatCancer a few weeks later and was assigned to Dr Randy as my 'coach'. Just having someone to bounce my feelings and ideas off of was priceless, as most people do not understand or are equiped to help with the anxiety, complexity of information, and emotions. She was a wealth of knowledge, and will meet you where you are in the journey, non-judgemental, and was especially helpfull since I decided to not utilize 'traditional' medicine, but alternatives. I continue to recommend Beatcancer.org to anyone touched by cancer, and I am happy to say I am alive and well, continuing my journey of health and wellness, and staying out of the sick care system! Thank you Dr Silverstein, Dr Randy, and all the volunteers at Beat Cancer for your selfless, much needed support! Dee Yezbak
I was diagnosed with cancer in early 1993. BeatCancer.org was an amazing resource for me as I sought information (I couldn't take chemotherapy due to an existing health condition - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity).
They were hosting one-day conferences in easy driving distance for me. I was able to meet like-minded people and listen to terrific presenters. This really mattered to me.
I gathered all the information I found through this group and other sources, eventually creating a 65 page handout.
When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I could not take chemotherapy and chose not to do radiation. At a loss for choices, I attended several educational meetings this group held. The information was very useful and the contacts I made helped me to make better decisions.
