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!

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.

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

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!

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

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.

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.

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.

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

My father was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor. CACE was there, educating and assisting us with what to expect and how to combat his disease - every step of the way.

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!

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

I was pointed in several research directions that were very helpful!

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

Their depth of knowledge!

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

Sympathetic and willing to listen!

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

Change the direction of cancer treatment!!

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!

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

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

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

I can't think of any.

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

the ease of working with the staff due to their caring and helpful attitudes.

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

well trained and committed to making a difference.

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

touch millions with its education and the treatment and prevention of cancer.

Ways to make it better...

NA

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

financial.

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

CACE is an organization of integrity.
