I was diagnosed with Stage 4, Non-Hodgkin's B-Cell Lymphoma last year and contacted CACE to support me in combating the effects of Chemo and radiation treatment. I made the decision to do chemo and radiation since the cancer had already overwhelmed my immune system and was the most aggressive level (3). CACE provided me really great support on continuing in a diet rich in fruits and vegetables which I had already been on for 5 years and taking Juice Plus. The doctor was opposed to me taking any antioxidants but with my own research and support from CACE I was able to show him the benefits. Secondly recommendations made by CACE for coenzyme Q10, AHCC and other nutritional supplements allowed me to keep my immune system intact in spite of the effects of chemo and radiation. Many (most) of the people I met in treatment at the same time for various forms of cancer had to stop or curtail treatments as their immune system collapsed. I was always able to bounce back between treatments (every 3 weeks) by following the CACE recommendations as well as maintaining a pristine diet of fruits and vegetables. CACE, i.e. Dr. Susan Silberstien was both knowledgeable and compassionate. I sincerely thank her and CACE for their support. The Lord chose to heal me even though my situation was so dire but He was gracious in leading me to CACE and giving me the knowledge to d omy part in the healing process.
Hi My name is Cari Waldron, i am 47 and the mother of 10. In Jan of 2011, while pregnant with my 10th child, I was diagnosised with breast cancer. Having recently lost my father to leukemia who choose to do chemo, i knew this was not immediant option for me, and after seeing a breast specialist whose only option for me was a complete mastectomy with little regard to the affects that the surgery or drugs would do to my un-born baby, so i/ my husband decide pray and ask everyone we know to pray and to prepare my body for a battle 1st by changing my diet and adding nutrition. But even this would not be as easy as 1 would think, because i had to consider the health and well being of my un-born child.This was not something that conventional doctors could advise me in and certainly not something they were happy with. Knowing that food would be a good place to begin, both in elimating and adding, that is where we began. I heard about Juice Plus+ (nutrient dense whole food nutrition in capsule form)and immedientIy started taking it as well as representing it. it was through my Juice Plus business that i heard about C.A.C.E.. I was put in council with Dr. Randy Shane, who genuinely cared about me and the baby and our entire family and what we were going through, she was very informative, & was able to confirm all that i was doing as helpful and even had further suggestions always taking into consideration the well-being of the baby. Dr. Shane also highly suggested that I would nurse, that the hormone released during nursing possibly could affect the cancer in a positive way. So we nursed!!! (couldn't have done that if it had been removed!) I also had the pleasure of meeting the founder of C.A.C.E. Susan Silberstein, it was quite obvious her passion about helping those or family members of those who are battling cancer.
Our family has been blessed by this organization and are excited to report that God has used some or all of what we did to remove my tumor!!!!
My Father has been battling Stage IV lung cancer and when he dropped significant weight we sought help. The Center for Advancement in Cancer Education has given my Dad new hope and empowered him. Thanks to people, like Randi Shayne, who share their knowledge, people like my Dad are feeling better. My Dad, Mom and I have been on numerous conference calls where Randi teaches us how to eat better and get the best nutrition to help my Dad fight and feel better. We have learned about exercise, eating, breathing, staying mentally and physically engaged and even spiritually strong. Randi has schooled us on things we never knew about before, like the benefits of juicing. Most importantly, she gives hope to my Dad and we can all see how the Center has given him a better quality of life.
While recovering from a lobectomy for lung cancer, a friend who was totally recovered from her breast cancer, said to give Beat Cancer a call. "It changed my life" I called and it did the same for me. Dr Shayne heard my medical history and then started teaching me about nutrition and life habits. I hadn't thought of myself as a particularly bad eater. Just someone with a few indulgences. Dr Shayne taught me a whole ew way to think about eating. At first we spoke every week. After I understood the program, it became every month. I'm now two-and-a half years post surgery. I remain cancer free. In addition, I have come off of one of two hypertension medications completely. My readings are better than normal. My statin for cholesterol is now at 1/2 dosage. My panel is great. And all of this information and nurselings was free. I made a donation each year, but no one asked about it. They just gave me knowledge, compassion and support.
Susan and CACE were invaluable after my breast cancer diagnosis. They were supportive and knowledgeable, and, changed my outlook on the disease. They suggested dietary and lifestyle changes, whereas my physician only could think of chemotherapy. Ten years later I am still grateful for CACE and the choices I made.
this organization gave me a blueprint to follow when i had sinus cancer almost 4 years ago. They gave me information on diet,, juicing and supplements. The doctors were quite floored by my recovery AND I felt well throughout all the conventional therapy of chemo, radiation and surgery. I attribute my feeling of wellness and recovery to the support and guidance I received. . They were outstanding. i recommend them to anyone I know with cancer and they come back with high praise as well. thank you, mary carol kling
I have been acquainted with CACE since the mid 80's as a volunteer, donor and in 2008 as a client served. With my cncer dx. the FIRST phone call I made was to CACA. Susan Silberstein Phd met with me and outlined a complimentary strategy for me. The immediacey of help, the quality of help and resource offered, along with the compassion shown me, allowed me to manage the cancer treatment without the shear terror I had experienced prior to the call. Throughout the years I have directed countless people to CACE and all of them have come back to thank me for giving them a lifeline they didn't know they had. I have remained a supporter of this organization for over 25 years because I believe in its mission and quality of service offered. As a nurse and psychologist, I recognize the value of this truly dedicated group of people under the umbrella of CACE. Thank you for giving me this opportunity to highlight their importance.

Review from Guidestar
Susan Silberstein and her staff at CACE are the most devoted and helpful people that I have ever dealt with. My first encounter with Dr. Susan S. was at a Juice Plus lecture on Nutrition. In October 2009 – I was diagnosed with cancer. I have had four phone consultations with Dr. Susan Silberstein (each over an hour long). How many medical doctors give you more that 5 or 10 minutes and don’t remember anything about you. She was compassionate, caring and extremely knowledgeable. She taught me how to eat correctly to build up my immune system and explained the benefits of eating live foods. We talked about stress and attitude and exercise and supplements. She had many referrals to share. What inspired me the most was her no rush attitude on the phone and she remembered who I was and what I had told her about myself. How refreshing! She offers an alternative to regular forms of cancer treatment. How wonderful! Her service is strictly on a donation basis and I was not pushed to make a donation. She has been like an angel sent from heaven, come to my rescue. My thanks and gratitude are immeasurable. Kay Williams - Arizona
My Mom now 81 is a true testament of the amazing support offered by the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education founded by Susan Silberstein. My Mom is a breat and ovarian cancer survivor thanks to the care she received by Susan. Susan supported my mother through the pain and confusion of being a cancer patient. She was diagnosed with brest cancer some 20 years ago and recently overcame 3rd stage ovarian cancer some 8 years ago. Susan's approach was a combination of support through traditional and alternative cancer therapies with a focus on whole food nutition and emotional guidance. The Center helps each and every patient sort through the confusion of what is a safe and effective approach to healing. I recommend the Center to all my friends and family. They are so deserving of this award.
In '07 a friend of my daughter was diagnosed with Stage IV cancer. For support, I offered to prepare her meals. I went to CACE to find out what to feed a cancer patient. What would build their strength and maybe even get them well? What I discovered through CACE's nutritional and life style coaching, not only changed my life but also saved the life of our friend. She is cancer free and I have gained invaluable knowledge to prevent cancer before it happens!
In 2004 I was diagnosed with Stage 3 breast cancer and was fortunate to have found Dr. Silberstein and CACE. Five years later I am a survivor because of the guidance and support that was offered, which continues. We are treated as people, not a case number. For those who have started their journey, Dr Silberstein is there for us NOW. I have been empowered to share my knowledge and story of survival to inspire others to Beat Cancer.
