Center for Advancement in Cancer Education
June 23, 2011

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.
