I so appreciate the efforts of Beat Cancer.org in educating people in all walks of life about the options after a cancer diagnosis, and I'm also very impressed with the emphasis placed on nutrition as a preventative or to strengthen the body for healing during and after treatment. Love the cookbooks.

Dr. Susan Silberstein is so caring and giving. Her passion is to guide and support others to be sure they are educated about how to prevent and beat cancer. She always has a smile and kind word.
As one of her Cancer Educators, I am honored to have studied under her and to continue to learn from her.
She studies and works hard and she knows her topic better than anyone I've talked with. I trust her to give the right advice and I know her heart is in the right place when it comes to serving and helping others.
Thank you Dr. Susan for your love and concern for others and their health.

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.

This organization helps so many people and allows those with cancer and their relatives to decide which treatment they want to use for a cure. Susan is a powerful speaker and has advocated prevention way before early detection with healthy lifestyle choices. If I ever get cancer, I would definitely contact BeatCancer.org!

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.

I am a holistic physician and cardiologist. I regularly refer cancer patients to The Center for Advancement in Cancer Education because The Center provides a service that is not available anywhere else, and it is free. 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 cannot say enough good things about Susan Silberstein and her organization.

I heard Dr. Susan Silberstein speak and was moved and awed by her dedication to beating cancer. Having had breast cancer, I have taken her prevention methods to heart; I no longer fear the word cancer because I am constantly educating myself from her website and the links she provides. I have recommended her site to many people who have that diagnosis and to those who want to prevent it.

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

As a cancer VICTOR/SURVIVOR for over 45 years I am so grateful that this organisation exists for all cancer patients and families to learn that cancer is a survivable disease and not a death sentence filling patients with fear. It is through information, education and increased knowledge and loving support we learn to trust that we can take charge of our own health and lives. see mystory on their website blog.

A while back I worked for several years at the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education, as a volunteer and then on staff, offering counseling and psychological services. I was always impressed with the sensitivity, knowledge and care for patients. I was especially impressed with the many circumstances in which I observed meaningful improvement in patient health, often despite negative prognoses of the attending physicians.

I learned about BeatCancer.org while attending a conference on preventative health care. I found the people to be extremely attentive, passionate and helpful. Their educational materials and research are thorough. I'm grateful to have these resources to share with my own clients. I am also committed to following preventative care rather than the traditional American sick care system. Thank you BeatCancer.org for giving us choices.
