Dr. Susan Silberstein is so caring and giving. Her passion is to guide and support others to be sure they are educated about how to prevent and beat cancer. She always has a smile and kind word.
As one of her Cancer Educators, I am honored to have studied under her and to continue to learn from her.
She studies and works hard and she knows her topic better than anyone I've talked with. I trust her to give the right advice and I know her heart is in the right place when it comes to serving and helping others.
Thank you Dr. Susan for your love and concern for others and their health.

I first met Dr Susan Silberstein at a Juice Plus+ event. I had the privilege of speaking with her and found her so warm and caring. I began to read about her and check out her website. When I found out about her training and offer to become a certified Holistic Cancer Educator, I called her. She answered her phone, was so gracious and answered my questions.

I signed up and have learned so much from her and am so blessed to now be sharing her wisdom with others to guide and support them during their time of need.

I also had the opportunity to speak with one of the staff members, Nikki, and she was so kind and helpful.

Dr Silberstein and her staff are caring people and only want to help cancer patients and give them hope. Thank you for all you do. I am honored to be one of your ambassadors.

you will never find a more compassionate ,helpful, caring , and cancer proficient team of professionals. The Beat Cancer team is wonderful , they helped my family and I through some tough times when both my sister and dad got cancers at the same time.
I am a family Practitioner , but I really appreciated the help and guidance from the team .
Dr Silberstein and staff are wonderful ,helpful always going the extra mile to get you the resources you need to educate self , family and care providers .
If that wasn't enough there are so many opportunities to educate self on th ewebsite resources and books videos ,all reasonable prices and the courses given .
The telephone consult service is great and helps the actual patient with care and educational consults and there is an opportunity to pay it forward and donate so others can get the access to help too.
I just can't say enough of our gratitude to you all. May God Bless you with good health ,patience and to continue this service always .Thank you

If you or a loved one have cancer, this is the one connection you should definitely make. It is the only place where you can get one-on-one counseling for free. When so many sites take advantage of people in their desperation, this is the only place that doesn't. I can't say enough good things about this organization. And not only is it free, but it deals with supporting your body and your immune system through lifestyle changes and natural means, because if your immune system doesn't survive, neither will you. This gets to the cause, rather than putting a band-aid on. There's no pressure to use or not use conventional treatment, but you get the advice you need regardless of how you are treating your cancer.

I am a holistic physician and cardiologist. I regularly refer cancer patients to The Center for Advancement in Cancer Education because The Center provides a service that is not available anywhere else, and it is free. Not only is the advice that patients get the very best there is, but the compassion they receive is just as important to their recovery. I cannot say enough good things about Susan Silberstein and her organization.

I ran across Beatcancer.org while doing a google search. I was looking for a way to help one of my clients that was helping their grandchild go through cancer treatment. Even though I am an owner of Simply Healthy and Nurses Online Academy. I wasn't educationally qualified to give my client the information she needed on cancer care. So there I was, looking for information. I was so excited when I started looking over all that they had to offer. Even a "holistic cancer coaching certification"....which you guessed it...I quickly took and completed. What better way to be able to educate my client. I am forever thankful that I found such an upstanding non-profit and will always be supportive. They keep it personal and I like the feel of that. I can only imagine how it would feel to have them help me if I came to them because I had cancer. Dr. Susan Silberstein is an outstanding individual. She takes "caring" seriously. Her staff is amazing to work with. I can't say enough. ~ Sandra Bullard

A while back I worked for several years at the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education, as a volunteer and then on staff, offering counseling and psychological services. I was always impressed with the sensitivity, knowledge and care for patients. I was especially impressed with the many circumstances in which I observed meaningful improvement in patient health, often despite negative prognoses of the attending physicians.

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.

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.

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 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.

I am a nutrition professional who works specifically with clients who are battling chronic disease including cancer. BeatCancer.org provides valuable information about using nutrition to prevent as well as treat cancer. The organization also provides a certification process which is essential in establishing credibility with current and future clients.

I have referred my craniosacral patients as well as family and friends family to Dr. Silberstein and CACE, and they invariably say how helpful and empowering their advice has been. CACE's ability to meet people where they are at and work in conjunction with other healthcare providers is invaluable. If my mom had been more open to what CACE offers, she might have avoided several of the diseases she suffered from, and her quality of life could have been much better, so I feel a moral obligation to share CACE's mission with others.

She is so passionate about her mission and spreading the word about cancer prevention. I have seen her at so many conference spreading the word through all the center's education materials.

Dr. Silberstein and CACE provide much needed support and education about cancer prevention and treatment that is sorely missing in our country. Dr. Silberstein has provided education talks in my city multiple times and many of the attendees have said that her information is literally "life changing." My personal experience with Dr. Silberstein and her staff is that they are very knowledgeable, compassionate and patient. I highly recommend CACE!

There are so many great non profits and those focused on helping people with disease, but this organization truly gets to the root cause of a persons illness. They look at all aspects of an individual to help them heal. By transforming someone's health and life, they are truly transforming the well being of the world.

This organization offers both education and counseling to help people with cancer. As they say, the best cure is prevention, which is what the education program promotes. Counseling is top notch and follows closely the principles of the Gerson Institute. I do not have cancer, and I do not ever want to get it. The educator and counselor at Beat Cancer have freely offered me assistance in my own effort to improve my health. Always helpful.

I'm a representative for Juice Plus+ and Health Educator and because of the Nutritional Information I was introduced to Dr. Silverstein and BeatCancer.org I have been to lectures and bought material that has helped me make Nutritional changes as well as sharing the information with my customers. I have referred CACE to my customers and friends. They have had nothing but Thanks to me for referring them and because of the monthly calls and information that they received they have had HOPE. This is truly a gift that CASE gives to their clients as they go through the many difficult decisions and possible treatments. It is an organization that does wonderful things to who ever calls no matter what their financial situation. Nancy Moody, RN

As a Healthy Living Coach and someone who has lost both parents to cancer, I was so thrilled to find BeatCancer.org that I may refer those suffering or dealing with friend or family member. Because this organization's mission is key to helping people become educated in cancer prevention or recurrence. They offer lifestyle counseling and the support is like no other organization that I have ever known in my lifetime. After 35 years of operating as a not for profit donation based and still doing the work they do is monumental!

I recently completed my Masters in Nutrition with a focus on the connection between nutrition and cancer. People need to realize that not only is nutrition essential for prevention, the right nutrition is essential during cancer treatment. The Center for Advancement of Cancer Education provides education for professionals as well as providing direct services to cancer patients seeking nutrition alternatives or enhancements to their treatment therapies.

The Center for Advancement in Cancer Education provides a valuable service to both those dealing with a cancer diagnosis and those wishing to prevent it. For those dealing with a cancer diagnosis it can be a difficult time sorting through the maze of information. This organization helps to clients make sense of it all and put it into perspective. We refer clients for assistance quite frequently and the feedback has always been positive.

I admire the goals of this organization to provide caring holistic information to help prevent cancer and to assist those diagnosed with cancer to learn ane nutrition and other approaches which may improve their health and quality of life. This charity is unique in providing access to information, referrals, counseling and other resources. The director is a knowledgeable, caring person who has helped many hundreds of people. As a psychologist and nutriritionist, I can tell you that her information on CDs and in books is terrific. You can also schedule time to speak with someone on staff personally. You may want to become a member to benefit yourself and support this worthwhile work. The information is useful to anyone who values their health and wants to improve their immune system.....and their inner balance between mind, body and spirit. We are fortunate to have the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education in our area however if you are farther away, you can reach the Center by phone or internet. I RECOMMMEND IT HIGHLY.

I have learned so much from the director of CACE, Susan Silberstein, about prevention and the relationship between nutrition and disease/health . She gives amazing presentations ("Are you Digging your Grave with your Fork?"). She travels tirelessly around the country giving talks and spreading the word about how to prevent and reverse cancer. I have referred people to their organization many times. They offer free cancer consultation advice and abundant materials to help people on their journey to health.

I have found that this Center is unique in offering approaches to help peop;e reduce their risk of cancer as well as offering ways to survive cancer. The caring and attention to each person and family member who wishes to be involved is unprecedented. The Center has been helpful to me with relatives who have been diagnosed with cancer as well as to improve my own immune system. Approaches include but are not necessarily limited to nutrition, counseling and resource materials which are truly user friendly and the cost is truly inexpensive. I have found that the Director is compassionate and decicated to the mission of helath and ell-being. My work at the center motivate me to become a licensed nuturitonist and to continue the lifelong learning process of heathy living. My background as a psychologist with a specialty in health psychology perhaps gives me a perspective of sharing with you that this Center is truly special and aims to enhance the lives of those who are diagnosed. The Center has been very helpful and inspirational too me at times when family members were struggling with theri health. It has veen a place that gives support and information of a kind that is not available anywhere else. I highly recommend the Center for hving both heart and brains Uf you or a family member could benefit from this information please do contact the center.

CACE has been there for my patients in need of direction, information, and hands on help to implement comlimentary medicine to support their bodies' healing. In the cancer field, many confuse the symptoms of cancer for the disease. The tumors are the symptoms. The process that allowed those growths in the first place is what needs to be addressed. We in alternative medicine know that if you only deal with the symptom, the tumor, the process that put it there continues unabated and creates more symptoms (tumors). Healing the process is what CACE is all about,and this is a very individualized experience because with cancer each patient has their own "process". I commend Susan Silberstein for her tireless efforts of over 30 years supporting the healings of thousands. Thank You CACE

I met the founder of this unique and powerful force for health almost 30 years ago and have been continually impressed by its contributions to alternative, preventive, and complementary health in our community and nationwide. I have attended a number of CACE's educational courses and programs and have always come away with the latest information based on hard science combined with a deep sense of caring for the clients they serve. Many times I have recommended people with a diagnosis of cancer to CACE, knowing they will get the best advice about how they as individuals can put together the program of recovery which will be most comfortable, helpful, and hopeful for them. Also, people like myself who are interested in finding out the best ways to prevent this degenerative disease can do no better than to learn all they can from this wonderful organization.

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.

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.
