Center for Advancement in Cancer Education
November 14, 2012

CACE has changed, and possibly saved, my life. Last February I received a diagnosis of lymphoma from Mayo Clinic. To POSITIVELY confirm this diagnosis they wanted to biopsy an area of my brain that could have left me blind or paralyzed. I did not agree to this and asked if there was ANYTHING else I could do for myself. They said no.....that I would just have to continue having MRIs to check on my "abnormality". What an overwhelming and helpless feeling! Who is there to talk to? From a friend, I found beatcancer.org through CACE and began having weekly hour-long talks with Randi Shayne. Can you believe they do this??!! I felt genuine concern from her and her knowledge of cancer, the body, nutrition, coping, as well as any other topic was amazing. She filled me with information and offered advice without judgement. I completely changed my eating habits, exercise routine, and way of looking at things. What a gift to have an organization that makes it possible to talk to someone like her! This month, after my 6th MRI, they decided that I most likely DO NOT have lymphoma. I TOTALLY BELIEVE that my new lifestyle was instrumental in this. What if I had that biopsy and became handicapped? I tell everyone who is facing the scary world of cancer to contact beatcancer.org. There is truly no other organization like it.
