As someone who had cancer I am consistently aware of how important good information and a different perspective is to have. The care and attention of this foundation to gather and curate information helps separate the extremes. I appreciate the work that the people in this organization particularly David Emerson put into the website and their information links and commentary.

PeopleBeatingCancer is an amazing resource not only for survivors and their caregivers but also for folks interested in proactive measures to change or limit environmental and dietary factors that may trigger the disease down the road. My aunt bravely gave invasive breast cancer the finger for over 20 years, trying myriad medical and alternative treatments. PeopleBeatingCancer would have been an amazing help to her, as I know it is to countless people today. Chris B, Chagrin Falls, OH
