Center for Advancement in Cancer Education
June 15, 2010

I have been participating in and following the work of the Center for Advancement in Cancer for several decades. In the 1980s and 1990s i volunteered in various capacities and attended conferences for man, many years. CACE provides a unique and valuable service for the public. With no vested interests and having impartially followed and reviewed most treatment programs around the world for decades it is the most credible source I know for information and referrals for people when they may be inundated with confusing and biased information at a most stressful time in their lives. CACE is also very sensitive to respecting individual belief systems and needs in offering a range of approaches from complementary medicine to biological repair. The professional conferences I have attended over the years have been a very high quality with presentations by pioneers and leaders in the field, including my field of Psychoneuroimmunology. Their public events are very informative and give practical information people can use. The professional referrals I have collaborated with or used have been the top of the line, pioneer in their fields, creative scientists. I especially appreciate CACE's emphasis on nontoxic treatments, enhancing the effectiveness of treatments and reducing side effects of conventional approaches when necessary. I have referred loved ones with a cancer diagnosis for consultations and have sent materials to friends as well. It is great to have a resource that I trust 100% for quality of information, referrals and integrity. I have been saddened to observe the organization struggling so much financially when they are doing such valuable work. With more financial support CACE cold do much more good.
