As a Healthy Living Coach and someone who has lost both parents to cancer, I was so thrilled to find BeatCancer.org that I may refer those suffering or dealing with friend or family member. Because this organization's mission is key to helping people become educated in cancer prevention or recurrence. They offer lifestyle counseling and the support is like no other organization that I have ever known in my lifetime. After 35 years of operating as a not for profit donation based and still doing the work they do is monumental!

I recently completed my Masters in Nutrition with a focus on the connection between nutrition and cancer. People need to realize that not only is nutrition essential for prevention, the right nutrition is essential during cancer treatment. The Center for Advancement of Cancer Education provides education for professionals as well as providing direct services to cancer patients seeking nutrition alternatives or enhancements to their treatment therapies.

Beat Cancer is one of the best places for honest information about how to prevent and deal with this dreadful disease. As a professional who has spent the last 20 years researching this industry it is imperative to for cancer patients to go to a place they can trust that will fill in the many huge gaps in conventional care.

The Center for Advancement in Cancer Education provides a valuable service to both those dealing with a cancer diagnosis and those wishing to prevent it. For those dealing with a cancer diagnosis it can be a difficult time sorting through the maze of information. This organization helps to clients make sense of it all and put it into perspective. We refer clients for assistance quite frequently and the feedback has always been positive.

There was a wonderful all day symposium given in Philadelphia through BeatCancer.org, and I was very impressed with the wealth of up-to-date, valuable and insightful information, as well as a respectful and healing environment. Everyone gained support and an expert level of help. I am definitely going again next year, and will bring my friends.

As a integrative health practitioner, Beat Cancer is my first recommendation for my clients with or healing from cancer. I learned an incredible amount of extremely helpful information from one of Susan's educational programs and it has been invaluable for me in helping give my clients guidance, direction and resources. Susan and her team are like angels in providing counseling, education, resources and hope.

I admire the goals of this organization to provide caring holistic information to help prevent cancer and to assist those diagnosed with cancer to learn ane nutrition and other approaches which may improve their health and quality of life. This charity is unique in providing access to information, referrals, counseling and other resources. The director is a knowledgeable, caring person who has helped many hundreds of people. As a psychologist and nutriritionist, I can tell you that her information on CDs and in books is terrific. You can also schedule time to speak with someone on staff personally. You may want to become a member to benefit yourself and support this worthwhile work. The information is useful to anyone who values their health and wants to improve their immune system.....and their inner balance between mind, body and spirit. We are fortunate to have the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education in our area however if you are farther away, you can reach the Center by phone or internet. I RECOMMMEND IT HIGHLY.

I would suggest that more people contribute their time and money to keep this charity secure to help prevent cancer and help those diagnosed who need to know information to enhance their well-being..

I have learned so much from the director of CACE, Susan Silberstein, about prevention and the relationship between nutrition and disease/health . She gives amazing presentations ("Are you Digging your Grave with your Fork?"). She travels tirelessly around the country giving talks and spreading the word about how to prevent and reverse cancer. I have referred people to their organization many times. They offer free cancer consultation advice and abundant materials to help people on their journey to health.

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

I have benefited from attending the speaking engagements because I have learned more about how to eat a healthier diet for disease prevention.

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

From my exposures to CACE and their personnel, there is nothing I would recommend to change.

I have found that this Center is unique in offering approaches to help peop;e reduce their risk of cancer as well as offering ways to survive cancer. The caring and attention to each person and family member who wishes to be involved is unprecedented. The Center has been helpful to me with relatives who have been diagnosed with cancer as well as to improve my own immune system. Approaches include but are not necessarily limited to nutrition, counseling and resource materials which are truly user friendly and the cost is truly inexpensive. I have found that the Director is compassionate and decicated to the mission of helath and ell-being. My work at the center motivate me to become a licensed nuturitonist and to continue the lifelong learning process of heathy living. My background as a psychologist with a specialty in health psychology perhaps gives me a perspective of sharing with you that this Center is truly special and aims to enhance the lives of those who are diagnosed. The Center has been very helpful and inspirational too me at times when family members were struggling with theri health. It has veen a place that gives support and information of a kind that is not available anywhere else. I highly recommend the Center for hving both heart and brains Uf you or a family member could benefit from this information please do contact the center.

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

It has given me knowledge and resources for Ibooks and other materials to improve my health.

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

I would add to its budget as right now it is a non=profit which needs more money to expand its terrific services. It also could benefit from more staff as the need is there.

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

The ability to integrate varied approaches to improving health while taking individual preferences and needs into account. They have a wealth of knowledge and resources.

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

The staff is warm and dedicated to a mission of helping others achieve health and to thrive in their lives.

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

expand counseling services, advertise its mission and services to become more visible, expand its location and resource library. hire more staff and most importantly could service more people who need this organization desperately.

Ways to make it better...

there were additional staff to allow for additional scheduling of appointments sooner. This can only happen if donations increase.

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

This organization has a challenge of meeting ever increasing needs of patients and families with cancer while working with a budget which is small.

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

The Director has done an amazing job of inspiring and helping others. She knows how to use whatever donations she has to do the most good. She deserves a much higher salary but does not take it. The money you donate goes to patient services.

CACE has been there for my patients in need of direction, information, and hands on help to implement comlimentary medicine to support their bodies' healing. In the cancer field, many confuse the symptoms of cancer for the disease. The tumors are the symptoms. The process that allowed those growths in the first place is what needs to be addressed. We in alternative medicine know that if you only deal with the symptom, the tumor, the process that put it there continues unabated and creates more symptoms (tumors). Healing the process is what CACE is all about,and this is a very individualized experience because with cancer each patient has their own "process". I commend Susan Silberstein for her tireless efforts of over 30 years supporting the healings of thousands. Thank You CACE
