A close friend of mine was diagnosed with prostate cancer over 6 years ago & was given about 6 months to live by his medical professional. Of course they wanted to start with chemo & radiation right away along with a plethora of meds but my friend refused. While he appreciated their years of medical training, he wanted an alternative & found Center for Advancement in Cancer Education. He spent time with Dr. Randy Shane discussing alternatives & food choices ect. Right now, almost 7 years later my friend is still here. I was so intrigued by this that I asked if I could speak with Dr. Shane. I wasn't feeling good at 50 years old & my blood work was off. My husband who is 54 had really bad numbers as well & we were concerned because his father passed at the age of 62 from heart disease. Dr. Shane took the time to speak with me & go over my issues & diet in such detail. I took so many notes & followed up with more research & became obsessed with my health & her knowledge. Long & short of this is that my husband & I switched our diets completely & now have had outstanding blood work & feel 100 xs better ever since. My husband's Doctor asked him what he was doing because he could never get the same results for his patients with medications. We are so impressed with The Center for Advancement, especially Dr. Shane. Since then I have been teaching others about changing their diet & becoming healthier at 50 then they ever were. I just can say enough about Dr. Shane's knowledge & her generosity. We are blessed to have found this facility & have referred many of our friends who are suffering with cancer.

Dr. Susan Silberstein and her Center was my life line soon after I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer in 2004. Wanting others to experience the knowledge offered by the Center and its resources, I joined one of her first coaching classes. I have since been fortunate enough to share and educate women nationwide either before, as a preventative measure, during and after diagnosis. I have been able to pay it forward as I was able to be there for my 3 children, who through my experience, are now adults in service to others.
We have 'survolved'....survived and evolved, always in Gratitude.

In 2004 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer and was fortunate to have found Dr. Silberstein and CACE. Five years later I am a survivor because of the guidance and support that was offered, which continues. We are treated as people, not a case number. For those who have started their journey, Dr Silberstein is there for us NOW. I have been empowered to share my knowledge and story of survival to inspire others to Beat Cancer.

In January 2013 I was diagnosed with Stage 4 Lung Cancer (spread from uterus lining, and a bit into my liver). With coaching from the folks at BeatCancer, I totally changed 15 areas of my lifestyle and within 3 months, the cancer was undetectable. I am writing nearly 7 healthy years later. Areas: 1. Decide to live, 2. Surround self with positivity, 3. Meditate, 4. Move, 5. Focus on whole foods. Omit dairy, animal, processed, sweetened food, 6. Supplement as needed, 7. Drink 'clean' water, half weight in ounces, daily, 8. Get 7-8 restful sleep, 9. Live in gratitude, 10. Know your body has the innate purpose and power to heal itself, given a chance. Consider that cancer is not the enemy, but the body’s built-in defense system to save you from dying of acidosis (too much acid), 11. Cleanse internal body daily with lemon juice, periodically with method of your choice, i.e. herbs, colonics, 12. Generate negative ions to counter free radicals (acupuncture, massage, Biomat, moving water), 13. Laugh, have fun, listen to music, do something creative, hang out with friends, and enjoy life. 14. Accept that you are connected to the All-Powerful Source of Energy and Love known to many as God. Have faith all is well. Ask for your desires, be open to receive. Live in the moment; don’t regret your past or fear your future, 15. Get 20 minutes of daily sunshine for Vitamin D.

In sum: Toss out that ‘di-et’; begin your ‘live-it’ with organic, alkaline vegetables, green juices and smoothies, fruits, beans, nuts, seeds, coconut or almond milk, and plant-based protein powder.Add fresh lemon or lime to help alkalize food and water. I recommend getting a Spectracell blood test to check your body’s nutrient levels… If needed, supplement with antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins, minerals, phytonutrients, and probiotics...it’s well worth it.

To your health, the natural way.

I was given their booklets on foods that fight cancer and it was very helpful. They are now my short cut goto guideline regarding how to shop and eat and change my diet to help my body prevent a cancer recurrence. This simple information was never made available to me by any hospital. And certainly not even my nutritionist at Dana Farber. It is a mystery as to why these medical facilities fail to help their patients by educating them about how certain foods are known to fight cancers down to the sub type of cancer as highlighted in the booklets. I have since referred this web site to many friends who are newly diagnosed and fighting cancer. The bottom line: We should all be aware of these food as an ounce of prevention could save a life.

I was diagnosed with Lymphoma. I knew I was likely to be prescribed chemo or radiation which scared the hell out of me. So, upon a friends advice, I went to Beatcancer to see what they might suggest.
The counselor I was assigned to spent a good deal of time questioning me and came up with a plan. She completely changed my diet and even much of my lifestyle. Some of the changes were somewhat difficult to adjust to but I stuck with it. At the same time, I was under the care of top cancer doctors at Penn Medicine. Fortunately, After I pleaded my case, they agreed to schedule appointments to monitor my progress with BeatCancer and delayed any other treatment.
As it turned out, every visit to the doctors (each included a blood test) showed that the cancer was leaving my body. After a few years of monitoring, the tests showed I was cancer free.
My choice was change my lifestyle or live with drugs the rest of my life. Sometimes the choices were not easy but I am actively leading a healthy life and I am not in remission - I am cancer free.

I found Beatcancer.org after praying to find the right information. After a very scary doctor visit I desperately needed counseling about a procedure that I did not feel right about. I prayed and prayed to find the right counselor to help me. By divine guidance I found Beatcancer.org and with that organization I met Dr. Randi Shayne. Dr. Randi took me from feeling very vulnerable, scared, and boarding on despair to having a plan in that first session. She gave me a referral to an Epigenetic doctor--- just what I was looking for. Dr. Randi coached me on diet and life style changes. I lost a boat load of weight, I feel 10 years younger, and have never been healthier. I am now taking the second tier Beatcancer.org course for educators and speakers and I have learned so much about cancer prevention through nutrition and life style. Beatcancer.org did for me the impossible: it helped me with a real prevention plan, that focused on repairing my body and not on the symptoms, and they raise money to educate -with the ton of information already known. So that a person like me looking at all the different treatment options and all the different diets ---can be guided through and choose what is in my highest good. Beatcancer.org saved my life and gave me emotional strength. Skills that I will use for the rest of my life. Thank you Beatcancer.org and thank you Dr. Randi!

I first met Dr Susan Silberstein at a Juice Plus+ event. I had the privilege of speaking with her and found her so warm and caring. I began to read about her and check out her website. When I found out about her training and offer to become a certified Holistic Cancer Educator, I called her. She answered her phone, was so gracious and answered my questions.

I signed up and have learned so much from her and am so blessed to now be sharing her wisdom with others to guide and support them during their time of need.

I also had the opportunity to speak with one of the staff members, Nikki, and she was so kind and helpful.

Dr Silberstein and her staff are caring people and only want to help cancer patients and give them hope. Thank you for all you do. I am honored to be one of your ambassadors.

I was found with thyroid cancer in 2014 and was recommended to get my thyroid taken out. Since the node was very small and I prefer to use natural alternative methods I contacted Beat Cancer.org for counseling. A diet plan and the support given me has carried me in the right direction. I have added Juicing and a weekly coffee enema to assist me along with taking Juice Plus capsules and some supplements.The process of learning continues, but the Beat Cancer phone counseling support is valuable to me.

I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer a year ago. I had been using Juice Plus' vegetable and fruit capsules for many years as well as other practices to support my health, although stress and some poor habits were a negative factor I believe. I contacted Beat Cancer .org because I did not want to follow the conventional route whenever a wholistic approach is possible. I was assigned to naturalpathic doctor Randy with beatcancer. org for counseling by phone. She has been advising me and my wife Lois over this past many months. Her diet and life style advice is somewhat demanding, but I feel better as time goes on. Her encouragement helps us to stay the course although I need to be more compliant as I know I will be better off if I am. I incorporate other resources I have available and am optimistic that I will continue to enjoy many more year pass my coming 76th birthday. I think our sick society needs more of this approach to restore a healthy America.

A few years ago, I had a cancer scare and consulted by phone with Dr. Susan Silberstein. The time she spent speaking to me and advice was greatly appreciated. CACE offers a valuable service for individuals who don't wish to follow the traditional treatment route, and their focus on prevention and education is refreshing. Also, I have attended a couple of their educational events, which are reasonably priced. I wish they were a little closer to me now, but I still appreciate their work.

If you or a loved one have cancer, this is the one connection you should definitely make. It is the only place where you can get one-on-one counseling for free. When so many sites take advantage of people in their desperation, this is the only place that doesn't. I can't say enough good things about this organization. And not only is it free, but it deals with supporting your body and your immune system through lifestyle changes and natural means, because if your immune system doesn't survive, neither will you. This gets to the cause, rather than putting a band-aid on. There's no pressure to use or not use conventional treatment, but you get the advice you need regardless of how you are treating your cancer.

Not only is the advice that patients get the very best there is, but the compassion they receive is just as important to their recovery.

I found Dr. Silberstein's Cancer Coaching Course online. I am a cancer survivor and want to help others through the process.

Susan's dedication to cancer education for over 30 years is remarkable. While many organizations claim to be patient-oriented, this organization is. Coaching services are free of charge if the patient cant pay. Otherwise, it is on a donation basis.

The quality of the education and resources is very high, and geared towards patients - not doctors or health professionals. The organization not only educates patients, but empowers them!

I am very proud to be a Certified Cancer Coach and be associated with the Center for Advancement of Cancer Education.

When our youngest daughter was diagnosed with leukemia at age 4 I didn't know where to turn. We already ate organically and were focusing on a healthy lifestyle, but the toxic treatment of cancer left me reeling as a seemingly helpless mother of four with one very ill daughter. The center was an amazing resource and support as I had weekly nutritional counseling sessions to help our daughter improve her immune system during treatments. After two and a half years of treatment the center then helped connect me with a homeopath familiar with healing after chemotherapy. This center is one of a kind and they touched our lives at a very difficult time. You can see Maggie's end of chemo video on vimeo.com by searching "Congrats Maggie". The Modern Family guys are on the front. Inspirational!

I ran across Beatcancer.org while doing a google search. I was looking for a way to help one of my clients that was helping their grandchild go through cancer treatment. Even though I am an owner of Simply Healthy and Nurses Online Academy. I wasn't educationally qualified to give my client the information she needed on cancer care. So there I was, looking for information. I was so excited when I started looking over all that they had to offer. Even a "holistic cancer coaching certification"....which you guessed it...I quickly took and completed. What better way to be able to educate my client. I am forever thankful that I found such an upstanding non-profit and will always be supportive. They keep it personal and I like the feel of that. I can only imagine how it would feel to have them help me if I came to them because I had cancer. Dr. Susan Silberstein is an outstanding individual. She takes "caring" seriously. Her staff is amazing to work with. I can't say enough. ~ Sandra Bullard

Beatcancer.org was my lifeline in 2010 when I found a 'lump' in my breast, and now cancer was up close and personal. I already knew the path I wasn't taking after watching my sister endure chemo/mastectomy, and another young friend pass from her leukemia treatments. I met Dr Silberstein at her booth at my first Juice Plus conference, 1 month after my discovery, and starting my holistic healing journey. I was assigned to Dr Randy, who helped me have the faith needed to stay the course with God's healing of plants, exercise, sunshine, water, attitude of gratitude, etc. I support beatcancer.org wholeheardedly, as they are making a difference directly with those seeking answers, whether they chose the allopathic/chemo route or completely holistic. I recommend them in my speaking engagements as a health advocate and 6 year cancer overcomer! NO chemo, radiation, surgery. They are my hero's !

I learned of BeatCancer.org through my Juice Plus association, and met Dr Silverstein in person at a conference. At that time I had just learned I had a 'lump' in my breast, and was gathering information. I was so excited and impressed with her knowledge and energy, I contacted BeatCancer a few weeks later and was assigned to Dr Randy as my 'coach'. Just having someone to bounce my feelings and ideas off of was priceless, as most people do not understand or are equiped to help with the anxiety, complexity of information, and emotions. She was a wealth of knowledge, and will meet you where you are in the journey, non-judgemental, and was especially helpfull since I decided to not utilize 'traditional' medicine, but alternatives. I continue to recommend Beatcancer.org to anyone touched by cancer, and I am happy to say I am alive and well, continuing my journey of health and wellness, and staying out of the sick care system!

I was diagnosed with cancer in early 1993. BeatCancer.org was an amazing resource for me as I sought information (I couldn't take chemotherapy due to an existing health condition - Multiple Chemical Sensitivity).
They were hosting one-day conferences in easy driving distance for me. I was able to meet like-minded people and listen to terrific presenters. This really mattered to me.

I gathered all the information I found through this group and other sources, eventually creating a 65 page handout.

As a healthy living coach, I am all about educating people about the toxins in our food supply and toiletries, and the powerful healing benefits of whole food to prevent and cure disease. I've heard Dr. Silberstein speak several times and she's even personally returned a call and given me a half hour of her time to discuss the issue of soy and breast cancer. She is so passionate about helping other people avoid what she went through in losing her husband at such a young age to cancer.

I was diagnosed with Triple Negative breast cancer in May 2014. I went thru chemo, bilateral mastectomy and radiation for my treatment. As of today, I have no cancer in my body. When I got thru all of the treatment, I knew that I needed to do my part to ensure that cancer doesn't come back. I knew that my diet would have to change and that exercise needed to be a part of my everyday life. I got 30lbs. off of my body and adopted a good plant based diet and low fat meats. But knowing that our food sources/supplies are riddled with pesticides and so many hidden dangers left me hungry for more knowledge about what I was putting into my body. I was invited to a conference called, Killing Cancer With Your Fork by Dr. Silberstein. I was stunned by the knowledge and all of the resources that Beat Cancer.org supplied. I thank them for all they do!

When I was diagnosed with an aggressive, invasive breast cancer I heard Dr. Susan Silberstein speak about the nutritional power of plant foods to help my body fight back alongside the oncology protocol that I was being given. I did not know the effect that changing my diet would have, but I knew that eating a lot more vegetables was the one thing that I could contribute to this fight. My initial prognosis was 2 years and that was 17 years ago. I continue to eat a strongly plant-based diet and as a nutritionist, I teach my patients to do the same.

The techniques for delving into the emotional causes of disease are especially helpful in my work, and also in maintaining my own health. I always recommend to my clients that if they want more information, they can call the Centre for help.

CACE was an incredible help to me and my family when my father was diagnosed with Pancreatic cancer. The consultations they provided via one of their in-house experts on a regular basis had an incredible impact on my father's health thru his chemotherapy - and the guidance she provided to us on the impact of making immediate changes to his diet and the power of nutrition in fighting cancer was something we could not have found on our own. This was the worst experience of our lives and the help of the CACE team - primarily thru the one individual who counseled us throughout our fight - not only helped my father immeasurably but gave us all tremendous knowledge that we now pass out to others who must fight cancer themselves or with loved ones. We owe the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education a debt that we can not repay.

Dr. Susan and her team helped my sister-in-law beat stage 4 cancer, and not afterwards I was diagnosed with colo-rectal cancer. I chose to use both traditional medical treatment (radiation, chemo, and surgery) and alternative methods (nutrition, etc) and found Dr. Susan's information and guides to be very important in planning my attack on cancer. They were most generous of time and talent.

I was a volunteer for about 2 years and loved every moment spent with Dr. Susan. I learned so much about cancer research and now have two of Dr. Susan's cookbooks and love using all of them. I enjoyed all of my assignments such as postings of contributions, filing, data entry, mass mailings, inventory checks and helping Dr. Susan pack for her lictures. It was a wonderful pleasure to volunteer as well as an honor for such a wonderful organization.

I don't have cancer, but I know a lot about it. That's what happens when someone you love, like my soul mate, gets cancer. It's a road you don't want to go down, but it is definitely one you don't want to travel without knowledge. BeatCancer.org and its Center for Advancement in Cancer Education is the first place I would turn if cancer ever inserts itself into my life again. Perhaps, I could have extended the life of my loved one with all the answers and compassion I would have found here that I didn't find elsewhere.

Research has not been the answer to cancer. Raising billions of dollars to keep organizations going does not cure cancer. If it did, it would have already happened. Education and prevention is the cure for cancer. This organization is the ONLY one I would contribute money to for the prevention of cancer.

Thank you for being there on the tough road when patients and caregivers need you. I hope to enroll in your Holistic Cancer Coaching program in the near future. That is the best and most heartfelt initiative I have ever seen in the fight against cancer. Ironically, without knowing about this organization and its mission, it is what I concluded was the number one thing missing from cancer patient care when I went through it personally with my soul mate. I wrote the following in my 2011 award-winning book titled "A Dose of Reality...Losing William to the Big Business of Cancer in America---"In the best of all worlds, it would be wonderful to be able to enlist the services of a knowledgeable, independent, and open-minded group of collaborative patient advocates for hire during such a stressful time."

It takes the pain of loss to be so forward thinking. Dr. Susan Silberstein has been there. So have I. She is now a light for others, as I hope to be with my book and as a coach on her team.

I am a nutrition professional who works specifically with clients who are battling chronic disease including cancer. BeatCancer.org provides valuable information about using nutrition to prevent as well as treat cancer. The organization also provides a certification process which is essential in establishing credibility with current and future clients.

Even the bravest and most well-informed among us tremble when we hear "Diagnosis: Cancer." Although vast amounts of information about various treatments for various forms of cancer are available, much of it is unintelligible to even the smartest laypersons. BeatCancer.org professionals have provided our family with sound personalized counseling for two family members with different forms of cancer, and by doing so have given us a helpful information and a balanced perspective for making difficult decisions.

I have referred my craniosacral patients as well as family and friends family to Dr. Silberstein and CACE, and they invariably say how helpful and empowering their advice has been. CACE's ability to meet people where they are at and work in conjunction with other healthcare providers is invaluable. If my mom had been more open to what CACE offers, she might have avoided several of the diseases she suffered from, and her quality of life could have been much better, so I feel a moral obligation to share CACE's mission with others.

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2013. I felt I was in the twilight zone with so many emotions. I needed to make a decision and quickly. My sister referred me to Dr. Silberstein with Beat Cancer.Org. I spoke with Susan on several occasions and she was able to explain to me about my tests, typical protocol etc. I felt calmed after speaking with her and was able to make my decisions clearly and also knew what questions I needed to ask my doctor. The information I received regarding my lifestyle, proper nutrition were invaluable to me. I am so Thankful I spoke with her before I started my journey!

I have many clients who get diagnosed with cancer and I always tell them to check out BeatCancer.org and Susan Silberstein. The center has helped so many people over the years with honest and truthful information. Susan is wonderful and knows her stuff. She is so passionate about her mission and spreading the word about cancer prevention. I have seen her at so many conference spreading the word through all the center's education materials. This is one of the best non-profits out there.

I am a big supporter of this wonderful passionate organization. Dr. Silberstein is an amazing person to devote her life to helping others. She is very powerful in her knowledge and I'm truly touched that she touches so many people's lives helping them without expecting anything in return. That is unbelievable in our world today and I'm blessed to have met the people in my life that made me aware of this company. I've shared this company with many people that I know going through or having family/friends going through health challenges. I wish everyone could see her speak and just take one suggestion from her to start the change in creating a healthier life. Her words, Prevention is the Cure, had impacted my life and the way our family lives!

I have heard Dr. Silberstein speak on several occasions and I always learn something new that can help me and my business. I have watched over and over again people who have been touched by Cancer see there is hope and options too. I have personally lost people I love to this terrible disease too. And I know the option they were given were not the best options. Thank you for educating and giving us options and hope too.

In the last 28 years i have served on over 15 boards. Most of the boards were daibetes related.
The board that stood out the most for me was Center for Advancement in Cancer Education or as we know it today www.BeatCancer.Org.
Cancer has touched my family in a big way in the last 2 decades.
It took both of my parents, my father in law and many others near and dear to my heart!
My involvement in the organization is very personal for me.
First of all in memory of the loved ones I lost.
But more importantly for the family and friends that may be touched by this disease.
If a family member or friend was touched by Cancer i would like their first stop to be at beat cancer.
Susan Silberstein and her staff in my eyes are gifts from GOD!!!!
I will not stop helping Beat Cancer spread their word until we BEAT CANCER!!!!
Susan, keep up your great and amazing work.
Thanks from the bottom of my heart.

I have been a supporter of CACE and a fan of Dr.Silbersteins for many years but never expected that I would ever need their services until may of this year when I was diagnosed with colon cancer. I was shocked and confused. Surgery needed to be done quickly because of a blockage and chemotherapy started 4 weeks later. I felt like I was being rushed into everything with no time to think or make any decisions about the treatment. I turned to CACE to help me sort it all out and am presently a client learning so much. I am now a student of juicing and learning to love drinking my green veggies which helps so much with the side effects of the chemotherapy. I am relearning how to eat and deal with the diagnosis. I am so greatful to have someone to talk to who is helping me put my life back in order to embrace life and not to dwell in the negative.

Dr. Silberstein and CACE provide much needed support and education about cancer prevention and treatment that is sorely missing in our country. Dr. Silberstein has provided education talks in my city multiple times and many of the attendees have said that her information is literally "life changing." My personal experience with Dr. Silberstein and her staff is that they are very knowledgeable, compassionate and patient. I highly recommend CACE!

I have learned a tremendous amount through the presentations with Dr. Silberstein, as well as from the resources the center offers. I have referred several friends and customers to the center who have benifitted tremendously from the support and information.

This former Philadelphian has had the misfortune of being diagnosed with Metastatic Malignant Melanoma more than once. Dr Silberstein has always made herself available to council, comfort and advise. She has been right on each time we have spoken. My husband also has had the fortune to work with her during his Cancer Challenge. Once again she came through with helpful suggestions and comforting words. Working with our Minnesota Physicians and supplementing their treatment with Dr. Silberstein's insights and suggestions has been most helpful to us. Her no pressure tactics have relieved us as we attempt to alter our eating habits and lifestyle.

I had volunteered with organization and when I was diagnosed with sinus cancer I called Dr. Silberstein. She told me: If you aren't vegetarian become one, if you are taking juice plus triple your dose, I you aren't juicing begin and drink a quart a day to include spinach, kale, carrots ,and beet greens. I did all of these and I went through chemo, surgery and 75 treatments with radiation, feeling well the entire time. It's five years out, I still take juice plus, juice and TRY to be vegetarian and I still feel great. The Drs. at U of PA. were quite amazed, they had never seen that tumor disappear after chemo, only reduced. I believe this regimen enhanced the efficacy of the treatments. I continue to support this organization
