When a member of my family was diagnosed with breast cancer, Dr. Silberstein helped her navigate the maze of treatment options available to her and select a course of treatment that has kept her healthy and cancer-free for over five years. The personal attention she recieved from Dr. Silberstein and her staff made a profound difference in her life. The counseling provided by CACE addresses the whole person and enables cancer patients and others to strengthen both body and mind.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The way they have counseled friends and family members, and the nutritional information they have provided me.

In '07 a friend of my daughter was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer. For support, I offered to prepare her meals. I went to CACE to find out what to feed a cancer patient. What would build their strength and maybe even get them well? What I discovered through CACE's nutritional and life style coaching, not only changed my life but also saved the life of our friend. She is cancer free and I have gained invaluable knowledge to prevent cancer before it happens!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...the way I eat, feed my family, and the way I view health and disease. CACE instilled optimism, that even Stage IV can be reversed. The surprising result of offering support to a friend was that I became empowered to support my own health.

I met the founder of this unique and powerful force for health almost 30 years ago and have been continually impressed by its contributions to alternative, preventive, and complementary health in our community and nationwide. I have attended a number of CACE's educational courses and programs and have always come away with the latest information based on hard science combined with a deep sense of caring for the clients they serve. Many times I have recommended people with a diagnosis of cancer to CACE, knowing they will get the best advice about how they as individuals can put together the program of recovery which will be most comfortable, helpful, and hopeful for them. Also, people like myself who are interested in finding out the best ways to prevent this degenerative disease can do no better than to learn all they can from this wonderful organization.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Classes, courses, lectures, workshops, and literature and videos which keep me informed of the best ways to help clients improve their diets and lifestyles to become more resistant to the degenerative conditions that plague modern society.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Make sure they had more resources to work with!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The caring, considerate, dedicated and determined attitude

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very helpful

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Reduce the costs of health care throughout the country by showing people how easy it is to get healthier and stay healthier through nutrition and lifestyle

Ways to make it better...

I had attended more of their great programs!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Expanding their reach while maintaining their high level of service

One thing I'd also say is that...

Thanks to CACE for being a leader in the natural health community

In 2004 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer and was fortunate to have found Dr. Silberstein and CACE. Five years later I am a survivor because of the guidance and support that was offered, which continues. We are treated as people, not a case number. For those who have started their journey, Dr Silberstein is there for us NOW. I have been empowered to share my knowledge and story of survival to inspire others to Beat Cancer.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have attended many lectures and one-on-one talks with Dr. Silberstein. She is focused on helping people make the best decisions when cancer strikes. If it ever strikes me, CACE will be the first place I go before making any decisions on my treatment.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

learning that nutrition plays a very important part in healing cancer. I have changed my diet to help keep cancer out of my body.

A great deal of emphasis is placed on using chemicals to treat cancer but it is common knowledge that while the chemicals destroy many bad cells they also destroy some good cells. Dr Silberstein can be very helpful in advising patients how to give their bodies the nutritional support it needs to be able to withstand the sever treatment of the cancer.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have heard Dr Silberstein lecture a number of times and realize she has the knowledge and background to be helpful to those who are in desparate need of confidence and encouragement in the process they are going through to seek a cure for cancer.

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.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

They provide information and counseling to people with cancer. I benefited from that.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Hearing information from important speakers.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Reach a lot more people with useful information

I followed life and health suggestions given by Center for Advancement in Cancer Education. I found suggestions clearer and easier to use. I changed my life style and feel my life has been better because of Center's help. Although I have had skin cancer and operations to remove cancer and sew up skin, I am alive unlike some people I have known. I have less fear of cancer and consider it part my life that I need to pay daily attention to like doing laundry. The Center suggestions are used in all aspects of my life and I am alive for it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

change of life style, less fear of cancer, accepting that daily awareness of need to care for myself and help others in gaining this awareness and changing their attitude and lifestyle.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the clear suggestion to change situation.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

practical and serene.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

extend it out reach to many persons and help them change their situation and attitude.

I was diagnosed with cancer and wanted to locate information and support to guide the stress filled journey. CACE was a wonderful resource because of their whole patient approach. They live the reality that cancer is a word not a sentence. Their key role is education for the reality of today with a hopefilled education for healthy tomorrows. CACE has a two-fold mission of support through diagnosis and prevention.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Life changing education that has yielded high quality of life and obviously I am still here!! I am convinced the nutritional component of cancer is SO overlooked!!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

suggest they see client/patients without pressuring for "membership fees" up front. Whether you call it payment or membership the reality was it was demanded at a time a person feels desperate. What if I couldn't pay?

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The exceptional education! They gave me information on protecting my kidneys about 2 years before the FDA caught up. Docs said they were 'crazy'...turns out they were just ahead of the pack. I healed rapidly/perfectly with their help!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

on a mission, intense, extraordinarily well educated on the matters at hand.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide prevention outreach. The reality is that I would have been best served had I been educated to prevent rather than support treatment plan. Hippocretes was right: Let thy food be thy medicine! I am living proof it can be treatment.

Ways to make it better...

They would have seen me without the $$ pressure and if the staff consult had a more gentle approach while patient catches up to what CACE knows for sure.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

funding, funding, funding which I am sure explains the approach I experienced. I find I support with $$ the places I know don't pressure patients for funds and those I, by experience, know helped without pressure for $$. Too many don't have!

One thing I'd also say is that...

Susan Silberstein does CMEs for physicians and nurses, travels to educate the public and truely cares about advancing cancer education for the whole person. She is not seeing tumors, she is reaching out to people. Your knife and fork are key to health!

After being diagnosed with cancer, my mother turned to CACE for diet and lifestyle counseling to strengthen her body during chemotherapy. Susan was so generous with her time, and she really helped my mom to understand the way that her diet can improve her symptoms and ultimately make her body less desirable for malignant cells. Her cookbook, Hungry for Health, is a staple in our kitchen.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I've watched my mom transform her thinking about food. Once a conventional eater, she now understands the importance of clean, organic, unprocessed foods and the way these foods sustain health in the body.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

suggest that they focus on meeting patients where they are, figuratively speaking. Some patients are more open to "alternative" therapies than others, and it's important that patients don't feel too overwhelmed by the depth of this important information.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

their absolute dedication to educating patients about cancer, which is born out of a very personal experience of the founder.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly knowledgeable and experienced.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

GREATLY reduce cancer rates around the world, thus saving millions of lives.

Ways to make it better...

the initial consultation had been a bit more introductory. I think that it's so overwhelming for a person to learn that they have cancer, and then equally overwhelming to learn that they need to change everything about how they eat as well.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

similar to any non-profit --- getting their name and mission out there and doing the best work with minimal resources.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this organization has so much to offer to the prevention and treatment of cancer. I'm looking forward to watching them impact the lives of more cancer patients and their families.
