Get Started

“It is time to provide our patients the education and clinical tools necessary to support an anticancer lifestyle to help them remain cancer free and to improve clinical outcomes, quality of life, and symptom control for those with cancer and cancer survivors.  We need to empower people to become active participants in their own health.  We need to show them how to best care for themselves; not only because they will feel better if they get involved, but because it’s good science and good medicine.” 

– Dr. David Servan-Schreiber, author of Anticancer: A New Way of Life

Modern oncology treatment focuses on destroying cancer cells.  This is an essential aspect of therapy, but there’s substantial evidence that truly effective cancer care should simultaneously foster an internal anticancer “terrain” to strengthen the body’s natural defenses against cancer.  This is the goal of the Anticancer Lifestyle Program: a truly integrated, evidence-based lifestyle transformation for cancer survivors. For a quick overview of the program, please see this 5-minute Q and ARead on to find out how you can participate in the program or bring it to a facility near you.

“This class has taken us all beyond being survivors.  To me, surviving implies passivity.  As a result of this program we have all regained some sense of control.”

“I’ve made many changes during the program, changes in activity levels, outlook, diet and confidence in the future and in my ability to affect my health and well- being.  I feel armed with knowledge.”

“Anticancer Lifestyle program has been a chance to re-evaluate and re-focus on my current lifestyle, and consider changes that might enhance it in the future.  It is a continuing work-in-progress.”

“The Anticancer Lifestyle Program was, for me, the continuation of a journey.  I doubted there was much more to be gained from the program.  How wrong I was.  The program reinforced the changes I made earlier, but most importantly brought me together with people who have taken control of their lives, have traveled similar journeys, and who share a joy of living.”

Note from a facilitator at a dissemination site:

“We had our last session last night and all I can say is wow!  The participants were so thankful for this course and said so many things that were powerful, I was truly in awe. During the diploma process, many people cried because of the new friends that they made, the things that they learned, and just how much more in control they felt.  I wish I had everything to tell you verbatim, but 2 very powerful statements for me were:

‘I no longer feel like a victim.’

‘The course helped me get through my treatment.’

There were so many more comments and everyone seemed to have made at least one if not many changes. And so many connections were made!! I can tell you that many people, including myself, were sad last night to say goodbye to our weekly sessions. It felt like a family.

I have provided health education programs for years and truly have never seen anything like this. I absolutely believe that everyone who participated will continue making changes throughout their lives.  You always hope for that, but you know behavior change is hard. However, with this program, I felt it, I know they will continue to thrive.

Thank you once again (that doesn’t even feel adequate) for sharing this with us.  It was an incredible journey and I cannot wait for the next one!”
