While recovering from a lobectomy for lung cancer, a friend who was totally recovered from her breast cancer, said to give Beat Cancer a call. "It changed my life" I called and it did the same for me. Dr Shayne heard my medical history and then started teaching me about nutrition and life habits. I hadn't thought of myself as a particularly bad eater. Just someone with a few indulgences. Dr Shayne taught me a whole ew way to think about eating. At first we spoke every week. After I understood the program, it became every month. I'm now two-and-a half years post surgery. I remain cancer free. In addition, I have come off of one of two hypertension medications completely. My readings are better than normal. My statin for cholesterol is now at 1/2 dosage. My panel is great. And all of this information and nurselings was free. I made a donation each year, but no one asked about it. They just gave me knowledge, compassion and support.

The Great!

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

every facet of my life. I have completely rethought my diet and they even encourage "cheating" so that I almost never feel deprived. When I do, it's usually for other reasons and food thoughts are just old habitual behavior.

Ways to make it better...

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

make Dr Shayne and the staff have more hours of counseling time made available.

Susan and CACE were invaluable after my breast cancer diagnosis. They were supportive and knowledgeable, and, changed my outlook on the disease. They suggested dietary and lifestyle changes, whereas my physician only could think of chemotherapy. Ten years later I am still grateful for CACE and the choices I made.

this organization gave me a blueprint to follow when i had sinus cancer almost 4 years ago. They gave me information on diet,, juicing and supplements. The doctors were quite floored by my recovery AND I felt well throughout all the conventional therapy of chemo, radiation and surgery. I attribute my feeling of wellness and recovery to the support and guidance I received. . They were outstanding. i recommend them to anyone I know with cancer and they come back with high praise as well. thank you, mary carol kling

I have been acquainted with CACE since the mid 80's as a volunteer, donor and in 2008 as a client served. With my cncer dx. the FIRST phone call I made was to CACA. Susan Silberstein Phd met with me and outlined a complimentary strategy for me. The immediacey of help, the quality of help and resource offered, along with the compassion shown me, allowed me to manage the cancer treatment without the shear terror I had experienced prior to the call. Throughout the years I have directed countless people to CACE and all of them have come back to thank me for giving them a lifeline they didn't know they had. I have remained a supporter of this organization for over 25 years because I believe in its mission and quality of service offered. As a nurse and psychologist, I recognize the value of this truly dedicated group of people under the umbrella of CACE. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to highlight their importance.

As mentioned above, when I got the dx of sinus CA my FIRST phone call was to CACE. I KNEW they would direct me to the best resources for my specific cancer, and offer information on specific nutritional measures to improve my immune system.

Ways to make it better...

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

ENLARGE its staff and outreach. Everyone with a cancer diagnosis needs to know this organization.

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

The education and information I have received along the way. It has benefited me, my family and friends and countless others I have referred to the center.

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

Witnessing the dedication and determination of Susan Silberstein in overcoming so many obstacles in gowing this organization, has been so life affirming for me.

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

Enlarge its reach and exposure. Hire more staff to offer services more quickly.

Ways to make it better...

If I thought it would have been appropriate for me to talk to someone there EVERY day during my CA treatment

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

Increasing exposure, Ensuring that any new director will have the same dertimination, will and comittment shown by Dr. Silberstein.

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

I am just so PROUD of this organization and feel privelaged to have been associated with it.

Susan Silberstein and her staff at CACE are the most devoted and helpful people that I have ever dealt with. My first encounter with Dr. Susan S. was at a Juice Plus lecture on Nutrition. In October 2009 – I was diagnosed with cancer. I have had four phone consultations with Dr. Susan Silberstein (each over an hour long). How many medical doctors give you more that 5 or 10 minutes and don’t remember anything about you. She was compassionate, caring and extremely knowledgeable. She taught me how to eat correctly to build up my immune system and explained the benefits of eating live foods. We talked about stress and attitude and exercise and supplements. She had many referrals to share. What inspired me the most was her no rush attitude on the phone and she remembered who I was and what I had told her about myself. How refreshing! She offers an alternative to regular forms of cancer treatment. How wonderful! Her service is strictly on a donation basis and I was not pushed to make a donation. She has been like an angel sent from heaven, come to my rescue. My thanks and gratitude are immeasurable. Kay Williams - Arizona

My Mom now 81 is a true testament of the amazing support offered by the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education founded by Susan Silberstein. My Mom is a breat and ovarian cancer survivor thanks to the care she received by Susan. Susan supported my mother through the pain and confusion of being a cancer patient. She was diagnosed with brest cancer some 20 years ago and recently overcame 3rd stage ovarian cancer some 8 years ago. Susan's approach was a combination of support through traditional and alternative cancer therapies with a focus on whole food nutition and emotional guidance. The Center helps each and every patient sort through the confusion of what is a safe and effective approach to healing. I recommend the Center to all my friends and family. They are so deserving of this award.

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!

The Great!

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.

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.

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 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.

The Great!

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.

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.

The Great!

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!!

Ways to make it better...

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?

More feedback...

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!
