A great deal of emphasis is placed on using chemicals to treat cancer but it is common knowledge that while the chemicals destroy many bad cells they also destroy some good cells. Dr Silberstein can be very helpful in advising patients how to give their bodies the nutritional support it needs to be able to withstand the sever treatment of the cancer.

I followed life and health suggestions given by Center for Advancement in Cancer Education. I found suggestions clearer and easier to use. I changed my life style and feel my life has been better because of Center's help. Although I have had skin cancer and operations to remove cancer and sew up skin, I am alive unlike some people I have known. I have less fear of cancer and consider it part my life that I need to pay daily attention to like doing laundry. The Center suggestions are used in all aspects of my life and I am alive for it.

I was diagnosed with cancer and wanted to locate information and support to guide the stress filled journey. CACE was a wonderful resource because of their whole patient approach. They live the reality that cancer is a word not a sentence. Their key role is education for the reality of today with a hopefilled education for healthy tomorrows. CACE has a two-fold mission of support through diagnosis and prevention.

After being diagnosed with cancer, my mother turned to CACE for diet and lifestyle counseling to strengthen her body during chemotherapy. Susan was so generous with her time, and she really helped my mom to understand the way that her diet can improve her symptoms and ultimately make her body less desirable for malignant cells. Her cookbook, Hungry for Health, is a staple in our kitchen.

From diagnosis to complete regaining of optimum health, I have benefited from caring, forward-thinking, advice offered by the staff at the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education. I learned of treatment options that helped make the difference ---in mind, body and spirit. Thanks to CASE, I made the paradigm shift from feeling ill to feeling hopeful about my life, and now I get to tell about it. Best, Florence Dudley

When my father was diagnosed with an unoperable malignant brain tumor, the staff at CACE began providing immediate support and consultation, in spite of an already packed client roster. We were provided not only information to help us combat this disease but the compassion and comfort to stand strong in the face of this formidable battle. Sadly, my father succumbed to complications from his tumor, but the knowledge we gained from working with CACE, has influenced our family to make more healthy choices in our diet and lifestyle. We will always be grateful for the support the competent and caring staff provided in our time of terrible health crisis.

This Organization (CACE) has made an incredibly strong and clear case for the notion that cancer is a malfunctioning PROCESS that gives rise to malignant tumor symptoms. And,as such, it urges us to respond to cancer by changing the environment within our body to prevent the PROCESS from prevailing. Accordingly,CACE places great emphasis on strengthening the immune system, and on nourishing the body with a high percentage of uncooked plant-based foods capable of creating a lot less acidic body chemistry and introducing much needed oxygen and digestive enzymes at the cellular level. This focus places greater emphasis on the cause of cancer instead of only responding to the effect.

CACE not only provides free emotional and nutritional counseling to cancer patients and their families; its founder, Susan Silberstein, travels the country educating people about the importance of nutrition in preventing and surviving cancer FOR FREE! Which would you rather do for yourself or a loved one - prevent cancer or go through surgery, radiation,and chemotherapy treatments? CACE teaches that up to 70% of cancer is preventable through lifestyle, ie diet, exercise, and avoidance of toxins like cigarette smoke.

When I was diagnosed with breast cancer last summer, I was able to speak with CACE free of charge! They directed me to alternative therapies to help me with my treatment plan! They were AWESOME! Susan Silberstein works tirelessly to help all those touched by cancer whether they can afford it or not! I direct everyone I know to this service!

Dr. Silberstein spent an hour over the phone reviewing the diet and lifestyle of my patient who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer (while I listened on the line). Her suggestions for changes in order to move the body back to optimal health were very helpful. My patient will be forever grateful for this intervention. CACE never makes a patient pay when they are unable -- This is admirable work they are doing!

I work in the field of nutrition and have been involved with the center for many years. I have referred clients to the center where they have received tremendous help. I have been to many lectures and book review that the founder Susan has presented. All have been eye opening and very useful in everyday life.

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.

I have known Dr. Susan Silberstein, founder of C.A.S.E., for many years. When I became a Job Developer for Goodwill's SCSEP Program last year, one of the first people I contacted to help (C.A.S.E. now gets free office support) was Susan, because I don't know anyone who cares as much as she does about the work she does. And C.A.S.E. is seriously in need of funding and support. I have offered my services for free and hope that others will follow. Thank you Susan. You are one in a million!

Ms. Silberstein's book, "Hungry for Health" was just the start I needed to understand and get started with an organic, alkaline diet when I was diagnosed with endometrial cancer. Now, a year later, I am very clear that this diet, and the rest of the information I have gleaned from Center's website and publications, have played a central part in my being cancer-free as of my last CT scan.

Having a CACE counselor in my corner helped enable me to do the work to eliminate a 1.5" mass diagnosed as a cancerous tumor in my small intestine to disappear in 97 days. It first showed up in a March Petscan but was declared "no longer present" in one done June 2010 at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore
