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.

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

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 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!

From diagnosis to complete regaining of optimum health, I have benefited from caring, forward-thinking, advice offered by the staff at the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education. I learned of treatment options that helped make the difference ---in mind, body and spirit. Thanks to CASE, I made the paradigm shift from feeling ill to feeling hopeful about my life, and now I get to tell about it. Best, Florence Dudley

The Great!

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

Yes, I obtained advice about coping with conventional treatment--chemo and radiation, and how to improve my eating. I learned to boost my immune system in countless ways--healthy eating, meditation, visualization, etc.

Ways to make it better...

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

I would obtain funding for full-time staff to publicize CASE's good works.

More feedback...

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

Learning about complementary treatment for cancer

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

knowledgeable and involved

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

expand services, generate a fund-raising program

Ways to make it better...

they had more staff to serve other clients

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

shortage of staff and funding

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

If patients knew about complementary cancer treatment, they could realize that cancer is curable.

When my father was diagnosed with an unoperable malignant brain tumor, the staff at CACE began providing immediate support and consultation, in spite of an already packed client roster. We were provided not only information to help us combat this disease but the compassion and comfort to stand strong in the face of this formidable battle. Sadly, my father succumbed to complications from his tumor, but the knowledge we gained from working with CACE, has influenced our family to make more healthy choices in our diet and lifestyle. We will always be grateful for the support the competent and caring staff provided in our time of terrible health crisis.

The Great!

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer last summer, I was able to speak with CACE free of charge! They directed me to alternative therapies to help me with my treatment plan! They were AWESOME! Susan Silberstein works tirelessly to help all those touched by cancer whether they can afford it or not! I direct everyone I know to this service!

Dr. Silberstein spent an hour over the phone reviewing the diet and lifestyle of my patient who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer (while I listened on the line). Her suggestions for changes in order to move the body back to optimal health were very helpful. My patient will be forever grateful for this intervention. CACE never makes a patient pay when they are unable -- This is admirable work they are doing!

The Great!

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

the improved sense of well-being for my patient after her contact with CACE.

Ways to make it better...

I can't think of any.

Ms. Silberstein's book, "Hungry for Health" was just the start I needed to understand and get started with an organic, alkaline diet when I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Now, a year later, I am very clear that this diet, and the rest of the information I have gleaned from Center's website and publications, have played a central part in my being cancer-free as of my last CT scan.

I see no reason to change anything

More feedback...

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

clear and concise information about eating my way out of cancer...

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

Did not interact with staff

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

Put pharmaceutical companies out of business

Ways to make it better...

n/a

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

getting mainstream physicians and oncologist to accept that diet plays a huge part in keeping cancer from forming in the first place, fighting cancer when it does begin, and keeping it away forever after treatment.

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

I've said enough

Having a CACE counselor in my corner helped enable me to do the work to eliminate a 1.5" mass diagnosed as a cancerous tumor in my small intestine to disappear in 97 days. It first showed up in a March Petscan but was declared "no longer present" in one done June 2010 at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore

The Great!

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

a way that has extended my life for myself and my family.
