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! Thank you Dr Silverstein, Dr Randy, and all the volunteers at Beat Cancer for your selfless, much needed support! Dee Yezbak

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.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer I could not take chemotherapy and chose not to do radiation. At a loss for choices, I attended several educational meetings this group held. The information was very useful and the contacts I made helped me to make better decisions.

I am a cancer healing coach and I turn to this organization and particularly to Susan for great up-to-date information, research, articles, helpful publications and uplifting stories to help me serve my clients better.

I really appreciate the work that this organization does and I can't say enough in terms of how needed it is in our communities today with cancer rates still on the rise.

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 respect and admire that she has turned her personal pain into a lifelong quest to help as many people as she can to prevent, treat and heal the effects of 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.

This organization consistently provides the public with constructive ideas in the prevention of and treatment for disease through its insistence on natural remedies. I truly believe that all the "medicines" needed by most of us most of the time are found in the produce and fish aisles of neighborhood supermarkets.

Dr. Susan has come halfway across the country to give a talk on a cancer prevention diet for our Juice Plus team in Nebraska. Her information is powerful and gives people the tools they need to help themselves heal naturally, information not typically given by regular doctors. Thanks to this organization, we are even more inspired to help people get more whole foods in their diet and transform their health!

We have known Susan for years and could not find a more dedicated individual to tirelessly share her story and her mission. She has and continues to help thousands showing the way to a cancer free life and supporting those who have contracted this awful disease. We are humbled to be an advocate, provide forums for her to speak, and to contribute to her cause.

Beat Cancer.org has been so amazing in my life. I was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer in 2010. I was devastated, so afraid and unsure if I would be able to make it. My company laid me off during the Spring of 2011 , my unemployment ended in 2012 and my life became a nightmare. In order to get the proper treatment that I needed, I had to travel about 300 miles roundtrip to get to the hospital. I found Beat Cancer.org on the internet and I reached out for help. The difference that they make in your life can't not be expressed enough. I was given hope, information and assistance that made my battle easier to fight. They took away some of the fear. I am thankful for the support and love it has given me. BeatCancer.org did not let me take this journey alone. I am so thankful for this. From the bottom of my heart thank you. Thank you for your assistance into many people lives like mine. Be Blessed!!

BeatCancer.org has been such a wonderful service to the cancer community providing information and education
that is scientifically based to help cancer patients cope or beat their disease. My teenage son was diagnosed with
Melanoma in 2000. I stayed current with advancements in cancer care, and I recently completed the
Holistic Cancer Support Educator class certification. Dr. Susan SIlberstein is one of the most compassionate and informed leader in this industry. Thank You. Janet Price

I am a massage therapist and yoga instructor, and I have attended educational lectures by Dr. Silberstein. Her material has been very helpful to me to pass along education to my clients and students. Many lives have been improved, maybe even saved, by learning about better health through nutrition. Thank you!

I have found their little education booklets on cancer and what healthy food looks like so helpful with the people I am a health coach for. The several times I have contacted them, their response time to questions is impressive for a non-profit organization

Beat Cancer has saved my life and thousands of others. Whenever I find out that a relative, friend or acquaintance has cancer, I do my best to get them in touch with the organization. Knowing too few will even give it a try and seeing all of the suffering and death simply out of fear, unwillingness and lack of knowledge - this is my greatest sadness.

The staff at BeatCancer.org are dedicated to providing the latest choices in avoiding cancer, recovering from cancer and dsealing with cancer. I became aware of the group when several of my friends were dying or in dire condition from the deadly disease. I now encourage my friends and family who have encounters with the disease to contact the professionals at CACE. They CAN help. The organization is also able to put on extremely enlightening and useful programs where corporations and organizations can gather their employees or staff for a presentation.

Although not a cancer patient myself I have certainly provided guidance for people who have dealt with cancer, including those who are part of a healing team. CACE provides guidance through education, and everything they have shared has been in line with what I have learned over the years. I can easily refer people to CACE without any concern that I will need to modify their suggestions.

I was searching to find a homeopath doctor to guide on how to use nutrition as medicine to prevent recurrence from cancer. It was starting to feel like a cost prohibitive endeavor- until I found Beat Cancer. The knowledge I gained from speaking with a homeopathic doctor each week empowered me to take steps to change my diet to become healthier. Now I can navigate my way through books and articles with confidence as well. Thank you!

I was lucky enough to receive personal training from Dr. Silberstein in 2011. It really helped to make sense of all the information and misinformation about cancer causes and treatments. I am able to give my clients much more individualized therapy sessions using the CACE model, and seeing very good results in terms of better quality of life. I recommend CACE to everyone I meet who is dealing with cancer, and I'm proud to say I'm a certified educator with CACE.

I was personally trained by Dr. Susan Silberstein to be a Beat Cancer Support Educator in the fall of 2011. I had met Dr. Susan previously, and was so impressed with her caring and compassion. I learned so much about all aspects of cancer - physical. emotional, and spiritual-- and her generous sharing of knowledge has really helped me in my own practice. 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.
