BeatCancer.org celebrates 35th Anniversary!
On Monday night I went to the 35th Anniversary Celebration of BeatCancer.org which is the website for the Center for Advancement in Cancer Education. Started in 1977 by Dr. Susan Silberstein, their mission is provide research based education on how to prevent, cope with, and beat cancer through diet, lifestyle and other immune boosting approaches.
I had read so much about Susan Silberstein and heard her years ago, way before cancer struck close to home, I decided to meet her and support her organization at their anniversary party. I met many board members and staff as well as Susan herself. Her focus is prevention not a cure for cancer. The organization has trained more than 50,000 prevention-seekers in the US and Canada. They have presented continuing education education to 1000′s of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals as well as provided individual coaching and counseling to nearly 30,000 cancer patients nationwide on a donation basis. It has been a busy 35 years!!
Her latest book Hungrier for Health is filled with vegan, kosher and tasty recipes that are nutritious and delicious!! The programs focus on building the body up, not just destroying the tumor. I found the evening informative and the people friendly and knowledgeable.
Susan’s mantra is Prevention is the cure! Sounds like a good plan to me. What do you think?
