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.

BeatCaner.org has helped me with my food choices and put me on the path to better health. Eating a plant based diet and whole food.
I found BeatCancer.org after I was diagnosed with Breast cancer and felt like I wasn't being given All the information I needed to make an informed decision. Its a fantastic source of information and gave me much confidence when speaking with doctors and it helped me to make informed decisions about my treatment.
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.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012.Upon completion of chemotherapy my first catscan showed that I had a malignant nodule on my thyroid.I frequently went to the Cancer Support Community in my local area and heard Dr Silberstein give a great lecture.She recommended Randi , the naturopath from beatcancer.org to help me stay healthy.Randi was amazing.I work for a weight loss company and I learned so much from this woman about healthy eating/lifestyle which has does wonders for my health and my job.The best part? Free .... they just ask for any donation so they have the funds to help others! Beatcancer.org is a wonderful organization!
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!!
