Turning Cancer Patients and Caregivers Into Informed Decision- Makers 

 

Hi, my name is David Emerson, and I have been living with an incurable cancer called Multiple Myeloma since 1994. I started PeopleBeatingCancer.org because I believe that there is a problem with cancer care today.  Cancer patients and caregivers are asked to make huge decisions about their health-- often while woefully uninformed, and under an extreme time crunch. How many of you are here because you were given 24 hours to approve your chemotherapy regimen? 

ā€‹Let me be clear: knowledge is power. The more you know, the better decisions you'll make for your care.  Yes, I said YOU. You are in control. This website and the non-profit organization that supports it are dedicated to helping cancer survivors and caregivers become informed, educated decision-makers about their treatment. All information found on this site is evidence-based with the studies cited, and actionable-- you can get started using the protocols right away.

Welcome!
