I was diagnosed with DCIS almost two years ago. As you might imagine--it was shocking. I never smoked, didn't drink, didn't live an immoral life. I began my cycle early at age 11 and entered menopause at age 50. I had no children, previously had Ovarian Cysts, Fibrocystic Breast, and twice had Endometriosis , so I knew my risks were high for getting Cancer. When I was diagnosed, I immediately changed my diet and went nearly 95% vegetarian, gave up sweets and started fresh juicing. At some point I hit a low and was depressed and felt out of control since my family was leaning toward Conventional treatments. Finally, in browsing the internet for help after meeting with oncologists, surgeons, etc., Randi (from Beat Cancer.org) came into my life. She was encouraging, uplifting and inspirational. She helped me with diet, exercise, supplements, emotions and confidence. I truly appreciated all her help and knowledge, she was warm and inviting. I've since referred others to this site and hope they will find similar support and delight. I looked forward to my weekly calls with Randi, and she often suggested that I take time for me, and let my other family members (who were adults) care for themselves--I needed this because I have always been a care-giver.

Thanks so very much for being available and offering your services freely (donations accepted). Much of what I learned, I've shared with others. Please keep up the good work. Cut, Burn and Poison is so detrimental to the mind, body and spirit. Cancer involves the entire person and must be treated "Whole-listically".

Respectfully supportive,

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 38. I was anxious to learn how to get my body and mind back into balance. The ND that counseled me was instrumental in turning my life around. She provided the encouragement and education I needed to make healthy lifestyle choices.

I hope his review is not too late to be included for 2012 Great NonProfits consideration. My father was diagnosed with advanced pancreatic cancer in 2008. The average lifespan is 5.5 months, and he was not a healthy man due to serious heart disease and diabetes, as well. We have a very close family and we were desperate to fight this disease, and were introduced to CACE by a friend. We had an initial consultation call with a patient support counselor and discussed the situation and what we might be able to do if we were willing to try to make changes immediately. She was an incredible wealth of knowledge on the subject of fighting cancer with nutrition, and made us aware of how diet and nutrition can have an amazingly strong effect on the ability of your immune system to fight both the cancer itself and also stand up to the terrible side effects of chemo and radiation along the way. Not only did she educate us thoroughly, and guide us with extensive recommendations, but she gave us hope, which is of vital significance to a cancer patient when they are fighting this disease. She really became our nutrition coach and a key member of our "team" in the fight. Most importantly, my dad trusted her and stayed strong, and had literally no side effects despite a non-stop series of chemo treatments for two years. We had many consultations, at least one every month via regular update calls for us to discuss my dad's status. She answered countless questions on all aspects of my dad's diet, his symptoms, and discussed any new ideas we may have come across related to the chemo, and the diet. My dad, and our family, came to depend on these calls as the months went by, and looked forward to them as a critical part of the treatment program. My dad lived for more than 2 years with this disease until his body finally gave out in 2011, and our CACE counselor was fully engaged with us every step of the way. I can not tell you how grateful we were for the guidance and support we received. I can not imagine that there is a better source of guidance and support from any organization in this country than what we received from CACE. I can not possibly recommend this organization and our specific counselor any more highly, and would encourage anyone who needs help fighting cancer to contact them.

CACE has changed, and possibly saved, my life. Last February I received a diagnosis of lymphoma from Mayo Clinic. To POSITIVELY confirm this diagnosis they wanted to biopsy an area of my brain that could have left me blind or paralyzed. I did not agree to this and asked if there was ANYTHING else I could do for myself. They said no.....that I would just have to continue having MRIs to check on my "abnormality". What an overwhelming and helpless feeling! Who is there to talk to? From a friend, I found beatcancer.org through CACE and began having weekly hour-long talks with Randi Shayne. Can you believe they do this??!! I felt genuine concern from her and her knowledge of cancer, the body, nutrition, coping, as well as any other topic was amazing. She filled me with information and offered advice without judgement. I completely changed my eating habits, exercise routine, and way of looking at things. What a gift to have an organization that makes it possible to talk to someone like her! This month, after my 6th MRI, they decided that I most likely DO NOT have lymphoma. I TOTALLY BELIEVE that my new lifestyle was instrumental in this. What if I had that biopsy and became handicapped? I tell everyone who is facing the scary world of cancer to contact beatcancer.org. There is truly no other organization like it.

As a woman with breast cancer healing herself naturally I was very fortunate to discover beatcancer.org when I first got diagnosed and didn't know where to turn. Dr. Randi Shyane was devoted to speaking with me every week giving me valuable information, advice and encouragement. It's been over a year now and I feel fabulous. She continues to give me free consultations and I really look forward to speaking with her with each appointment. I feel like she's not only a consultant and doctor but also a friend. This organization is the only resource I know of that gives so freely their precious time and guides those of us who are scared and living with cancer with compassion, knowledge and love.

While we were only a client for a few calls, CACE was very supportive and informative in helping us make a decision on my husbands possible cancer diagnosis. Thankfully it wasn't Cancer but the resources they provided by phone and literature have helped us and many others that I have recommended. What a wonderful organization! Karen

I was diagnosed with Stage 4, Non-Hodgkin's B-Cell Lymphoma last year and contacted CACE to support me in combating the effects of Chemo and radiation treatment. I made the decision to do chemo and radiation since the cancer had already overwhelmed my immune system and was the most aggressive level (3). CACE provided me really great support on continuing in a diet rich in fruits and vegetables which I had already been on for 5 years and taking Juice Plus. The doctor was opposed to me taking any antioxidants but with my own research and support from CACE I was able to show him the benefits. Secondly recommendations made by CACE for coenzyme Q10, AHCC and other nutritional supplements allowed me to keep my immune system intact in spite of the effects of chemo and radiation. Many (most) of the people I met in treatment at the same time for various forms of cancer had to stop or curtail treatments as their immune system collapsed. I was always able to bounce back between treatments (every 3 weeks) by following the CACE recommendations as well as maintaining a pristine diet of fruits and vegetables. CACE, i.e. Dr. Susan Silberstien was both knowledgeable and compassionate. I sincerely thank her and CACE for their support. The Lord chose to heal me even though my situation was so dire but He was gracious in leading me to CACE and giving me the knowledge to d omy part in the healing process.

The Great!

Their guidance was a significant factor in maintaining my immune system and recovery after the treatments ended. My immune system/blood work was normal in only 3 months post chemo and radiation

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

Hi My name is Cari Waldron, i am 47 and the mother of 10. In Jan of 2011, while pregnant with my 10th child, I was diagnosised with breast cancer. Having recently lost my father to leukemia who choose to do chemo, i knew this was not immediant option for me, and after seeing a breast specialist whose only option for me was a complete mastectomy with little regard to the affects that the surgery or drugs would do to my un-born baby, so i/ my husband decide pray and ask everyone we know to pray and to prepare my body for a battle 1st by changing my diet and adding nutrition. But even this would not be as easy as 1 would think, because i had to consider the health and well being of my un-born child.This was not something that conventional doctors could advise me in and certainly not something they were happy with. Knowing that food would be a good place to begin, both in elimating and adding, that is where we began. I heard about Juice Plus+ (nutrient dense whole food nutrition in capsule form)and immedientIy started taking it as well as representing it. it was through my Juice Plus business that i heard about C.A.C.E.. I was put in council with Dr. Randy Shane, who genuinely cared about me and the baby and our entire family and what we were going through, she was very informative, & was able to confirm all that i was doing as helpful and even had further suggestions always taking into consideration the well-being of the baby. Dr. Shane also highly suggested that I would nurse, that the hormone released during nursing possibly could affect the cancer in a positive way. So we nursed!!! (couldn't have done that if it had been removed!) I also had the pleasure of meeting the founder of C.A.C.E. Susan Silberstein, it was quite obvious her passion about helping those or family members of those who are battling cancer.
Our family has been blessed by this organization and are excited to report that God has used some or all of what we did to remove my tumor!!!!

My Father has been battling Stage IV lung cancer and when he dropped significant weight we sought help. The Center for Advancement in Cancer Education has given my Dad new hope and empowered him. Thanks to people, like Randi Shayne, who share their knowledge, people like my Dad are feeling better. My Dad, Mom and I have been on numerous conference calls where Randi teaches us how to eat better and get the best nutrition to help my Dad fight and feel better. We have learned about exercise, eating, breathing, staying mentally and physically engaged and even spiritually strong. Randi has schooled us on things we never knew about before, like the benefits of juicing. Most importantly, she gives hope to my Dad and we can all see how the Center has given him a better quality of life.
