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.

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!

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.

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!!

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!

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 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 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.

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

I had the opportunity to attend the Beat Cancer symposium last year, and since that time, I have followed CACE and participated in other events. In March of this year, I had a cancer scare and fortunately, my biopsy was benign. However, I received a wealth of information during a phone consultation with Susan, which I have used to make additional changes to my diet, even though it was pretty healthy to start. It is gratifying to know that such an organization exists not only to empower people to become proactive and make healthy changes, but also to guide individuals through the maze of medical treatments without asking for any payment in return.

I hope this helps you continue your work. Thank you!

I happen to glance at your website the other day and saw that you offer a health certification, which I am very interested and is what prompted me to write to you. I saw the name Randi Shayne and all sorts of old memories started to come forth. I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 and was very afraid. I somehow found this place via the internet and was hooked up with Randi. She was there for me to provide support along the way and I will never forget how amazing she was. In fact, I still have all my original notes i took from the many conversations I had with her. I will never forget how fabulous she was. It is because of her that I got on the path of good nutrition and developed my passion for health and wellness. Thank you Randi and thank you CACE for still being there.

The guidance and support Susan Silberstein and her team provided my husband & I after his diagnosis with stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer was amazing. They immediately lead us in the right direction for health care recommendations, eating and drinking preferences, and necessary exercise. Susan even calling him to offer encouragement.
I recommend to anyone diagnosed with cancer make this your first call.
