Cancer Coaching Testimonials- PeopleBeatingCancer

One of the evidence-based mind-body therapies that I follow is “sense of purpose.” Cancer Coaching testimonials from cancer patients, survivors and caregivers give me that “sense of purpose.”

The cancer coaching testimonials below are from patients and caregivers of many different types and stages of cancer who all have one thing in common. They all have turned to PeopleBeatingCancer for support.  Whether the people below turned to PBC for a minute, an hour or came to PBC repeatedly over the years to learn about their cancer, the testimonials below attest to the knowledge and support that they have received.

Kirsten- caregiver to her MMer dad-

Wonderful.. thank you so much for such a great summarizing. I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your advice..! I will be going over this carefully. Take care, Kirsten

Will- newly diagnosed MMer and MM CC client-

David, hope your move went well. That’s always a hectic affair.
Just wanted to say thanks again for the guidance and insight.  Much appreciated.
Still get my bearings but I will reach out in the next several days.
Thanks again.

Eric- MM CC Client-Caregiver to MMer Jan-
“I have been caretaking since February which began with Jan falling and breaking both arms and now I am reaching deep for my second wind.   With MM you are never quite sure what is ahead.  Thanks for your support David.  You have been there every time I needed some support.

Susan- Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC)

Oh, David – thank you soooo much. You are the only person that I have heard from about this and I am so eager to hear whatever you can find. At this point, I’m thinking that I may opt for the chemo and radiation instead of a lobectomy as I fear my post-operative surgery will leave me an invalid and COPD is progressive as well so how long would I live and how will my life be. Please forward anything else you can find and thank you again so much.

Bob MM CC Client-

“Thank you, David.  I have a lot of good reading to do and can’t wait to get started. Everything arrived just as it should with the possible exception of the Facebook invitation.  Perhaps that comes later.  I am looking forward to talking to you soon. In the meantime, I have plenty to keep me busy.  I have searched for a long time to find someone with your knowledge of healing and experience with MM.  Thanks for what you do.”

Kimberly Caregiver to her MMer Dad-

“I wanted to write and thank you for the help you provided our family.I contacted you in late 2015 about my father who had recently been diagnosed with MM. I asked you lots of questions which you graciously answered. You gave me hope that maybe my dad’s MM diagnosis was not a death sentence. He received conventional treatment.  In addition, he has been using the recommended supplements that you helped us discover. My dad is on maintenance Revlimid now.  His doctor recently said that he needed to revise his treatment plan since my dad’s blood work has been coming in so healthy.  He said that they needed to “go outside the box” for his treatment protocol and take time off of the Revlimid.

My dad is healthy and active now.  I thank God for leading us to you and to other people that have helped us along this journey. Thank you for helping us.  May God bless you.

Betsy Caregiver to MMer Simon-

“Thank you so much, David, you have been a tremendous resource and Simon is very much buoyed by your talk and we as a family are very grateful to you for your advice!  Take care, we wish you good health, and we will keep you posted as to Simon…”

John- Pre- MM CC client-

“Hi Dave.  I wanted to share with you that my blood test on Monday, July 10, showed my MGUS number dropped from 1.1 to .9, and I have my doctor appointment on Monday, July 17.  I followed your advice and increased my dosage of LifeExtension Super Bio-Curcumin from 400 mg a day to 800 mg.  It worked.  I will stay on 800 mg a day and see what my next test results are.  Thank you for your help.  I will let you know how things go.  I do believe in the LifeExtension Super Bio-Curcumin.  I would not use another brand.”

Scott- MM CC Client-

Hello David, I would like to thank you again for taking the time to speak to me yesterday. The discussion was actually quite comforting. I have read the majority of the downloads that I received yesterday. What a tremendous amount of information you have acquired. It was extremely informative and reinforces the fact that I have a lot of work to do. I do have a couple of questions now, there will be more later.”

Miriam- Pre-MM CC Client-

“Thank you for sending the pre-MM guides, and the Life Extension links, along with consumer lab. I’m prepared to commit myself towards improving immune system function, and being consistent with the more manageable aspects of where I am right now. I’ll keep you updated, and with anything that may be of help that I learn along the way.

Keep up the wonderful research that you offer, and may your own health continue to flourish.”

Brenda- MM Caregiver-

“Hello David, Thank you for always being a rich, reliable, and reasoned source of information and wisdom complete with this blog referral. Your information always gives up a boost when we are particularly vulnerable.”

Gillian- Pre-MM CC Client-

“HI David, Thanks for all that you do!!  It was wonderful to find your pages and the work you do is so good. It really helps. And congratulations on your 23 years!!”

 Tracy- MM CC Client

“I so appreciate your thoughts and advice and look forward to going over more of the info in your guides & also to going on Facebook & getting involved with a group. I need to be less anxious about everything which is a challenge because I’m a natural worrier at heart.  I didn’t read all the information on the disease that I could in the beginning when I was diagnosed with the MGus in 2015 because I was dealing with my Mom’s sudden death & was so overwhelmed emotionally. Especially when I just r googled the disease and would see all kinds of horror stories. Then when I got the lesions last year- I did the same thing because it was the only thing I could do at the time- right when I was in the middle of moving after buying a house. At times I felt that it was too scary and it got me very anxious and overwhelmed and I couldn’t sleep at night… but now I do want to be a little more educated going forward-I just have to take it one step at a time. So I’m glad to have to have found out about you and the research that you’ve done.”

Lynn- MM CC Client-

“I have reviewed your materials, which were very useful not only in helping me get organized for the next phase of my health trajectory and but also in confirming how much I have learned and have done in advocating for myself over the past three years since my diagnosis in 11/14.”

Louise- MM CC Client-

“Thank-You for this information. Greatly appreciated. I am a 5 year MM survivor. No SCT…I am high-risk for infections.”

Martine- MM Caregiver-

” My husband was diagnosed in 2003 and at that time there were not many treatments available and the MM specialists were pushing transplants a lot. At the time David was one of the few people who opened our eyes to alternatives. Now when we go to Dana Farber, the doctors are a lot less enthusiastic about transplants due to, as David said, the many more options available in treatments. We also changed our lifestyle to eat healthier and supplement to lessen the side effects. In conclusion, if you can, seek a second opinion with an MM specialist who will review your case and help you decide.”

Ann and Stan-MM CC Clients-

“In conclusion, the information in these guides is priceless. It announces loudly that everyone needs a cancer coach! You impacted my life and both my husband and I cannot thank you enough. 

Brent- MM CC Client-

“I signed up for your premier coaching training and would like to schedule my one on one time with you for some time in the near future. I read through most of your material. You have done an excellent job categorizing and summarizing your information on MM.”

Mort- MGUS- Pre-MM Client

I read your frequent contributions to People Beating Cancer appearing in my email box.  Many thanks for all the good work you do in that field, and for your continued friendship. Best wishes and regards. Mort

Laura-Caregiver to MMer Joe- MM CC Client

Thank you so much for your time David.  I really appreciate you helping us with all your experiences and I hope I will be able to help people and pay it forward once I have a lot more knowledge…. you are awesome.  Thanks again…I’m sure I will be bugging you again.

Vincent- MM CC client- MM CC Client

David- I have to tell you since I discovered PBC your introduction of CBD oil role in mitigating the toxicity of chemotherapy treatment is really notable. I believe the full regimen of Super Omega 3, super curcumin, CBD oil, and grape seed extract is making a notable impact on my overall quality of life. I am grateful for the service you provide. Thank you, David,

Kimberly- MM Caregiver

John- MGUS

Thank you, David, for the information.  Sincerely appreciate it.  I will look over your information, and I will continue with the diet, exercise, and the 400 mg of bio-curcumin daily.  You are A good man who did a great job helping others.  I greatly appreciate you, and I know a lot of other people look to you for help and information.  I will be in touch as I progress forward with my blood tests.  God be with you.  John.

Annie- Caregiver to Jim MM stage 3

Thank you so much for the speedy and in-depth reply.  That is definitely a non-conventional treat.   I so appreciate your insight and perspective.

Corrina- Multiple Myeloma

Once I contacted PBC and looked at the other posted and then email David , when I received Davids email   I felt so much clearer on what my plan was just having someone that has been in the same situation and understood  myeloma and to  read about other people going through the same .this has been wonderful support to me on my journey.
My results have been great so far almost right down and on my third month of the therapy of my choice.  Cheers Corrina

Peter- Multiple Myeloma

Thank you, Mr. Emerson, for the example you have set and the knowledge you share. I’ve been inspired by your story which has given me a lot of optimism for my own journey. I will continue to consult the PeopleBeatingCancer site. All the best Peter

 Katherine- Multiple Myeloma
Hi David, I am ready to sign up month-to-month, but I am not sure where on the website to make an initial payment. I am feeling very distressed and scared this morning and have lots of pressing questions. I am thinking of going for the built-in dose-reduction of Velcade as in this cycle (Cycle 4 of RVD), I’ve started having PN earlier than in previous cycles. It scares me.

Leah- Multiple Myeloma Caregiver

Hi David, Thanks for your very detailed response.  We’ve spoken with a radiologist today about the spine, as my husband’s oncologist is away at a conference until Monday. I really appreciated finding this site, to find positive stories and attitudes is hugely helpful at the moment.

John- Multiple Myeloma

 Couple of questions, If you could answer inline below that would be great,  THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the insight your providing as we try to piece the puzzle together. This exchange of info is very helpful and adds to the puzzle we have in front of us right now.

Thank you for sharing your incredible wealth of knowledge. I am 1 year out of an autologous stem cell transplant for Multiple Myeloma and would like to know the dosage
of Curcumin, resveratrol, green tea extract and omega’s you advise and anything else
Important for MM. The bone healing has been the most difficult part with fractures in the spine. Otherwise, I am active, biking, walking and working. Have not and will not do radiation.     All the Best, Joan

Lyne- Caregiver- Multiple Myeloma
 Thank you so much! I will do some research on what you wrote in your message. I remember having heard about curcumin being good for the health in general but never looked into it. Thanks for the links, also… Lyne

 Mary- Multiple Myeloma
I am totally grateful to you for sharing your story…
My m-spike has moved from .04 to 1.04 over the last 12 years thanks to you and Margaret’s Corner. It made me believe I could do something about it. Thanks so much for starting Galen.

Paul- Multiple Myeloma Caregiver

Thank you so much, David, for your in-depth and positive response. This is all new to me and I am struggling to understand the technical speak in the links provided.
If you are also stating that the treatment offered is the most effective way forward for my partner then I will reassure her and myself will also be less anxious
Thank you, David, I hope you are well Many thanks, Paul

positive difference in my life. Thank you, Debbie.
