Kelly A. Turner, PhD – Founder
Kelly A. Turner, PhD is the New York Times bestselling author of Radical Remission and Radical Hope, now in 22 languages, which summarize her research into radical remissions – when someone heals from cancer or another serious illness in a statistically unlikely way, such as without conventional medicine or after conventional medicine has failed.
Over the past fifteen years, she has conducted research in 10 different countries and analyzed over 1,500 cases of radical remission. She is a frequent guest on national talk and news shows and holds a B.A. from Harvard University and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley.
Most recently, Kelly has adapted her bestselling book into a fictional, feature-length screenplay entitled OPEN-ENDED TICKET which was a finalist for the Sundance Screenwriter’s Lab. This film tells the story of a cancer patient who takes her best friend on an around-the-world journey to try to find her estranged father before it’s too late. In their race against time, a string of unexpected events makes them question everything they thought they knew about life, death, and healing.
Kelly also created and directed the 10-episode Radical Remission Docuseries that explores each of the 10 healing factors from her research, and features many of the Radical Remission survivors from the books.
She is also the founder of the Radical Remission Project website, which continues to collect new cases of Radical Remission and offers online courses, in-person workshops, and one-on-one health coaching.
Liz Curran, M.S. – Co-Director
Liz Curran – Co-Director of the Radical Remission Project and holistic cancer health coach, educator, and speaker – was inspired to become a health coach after caring for her sister with an aggressive breast cancer diagnosis in 2014. She watched her sister struggle with feeling powerless to aid in her own healing. During that time, Liz believed that there had to be a roadmap out there to guide people to play a stronger role in their own healing. She believes Radical Remission is that roadmap.
As a Certified Radical Remission Health Coach, Liz has witnessed the power of lifestyle change firsthand, which motivates her to share the powerful benefits of the 10 healing factors with people seeking all types of treatments on their cancer journey, as well as other mental and physical diagnoses.
Liz has a Master of Science in International Marketing from St. Joseph’s University, Philadelphia and received her health coaching certification from the Institute of Integrative Nutrition as well as from the Radical Remission Project. She is nationally board certified by the National Board of Health & Wellness Coaches (NBHWC).
As the Co-Director of the Radical Remission Project, and as a Certified Radical Remission Workshop Instructor & Health Coach, it is Liz’s mission to empower others to find their voice and play an active role in their health with the foundational factors of Radical Remission. Email Liz here.

Karla Mans Giroux – Co-Director of the Radical Remission Project and a holistic cancer health coach, educator, and speaker – is a radical remission survivor living with stable metastatic breast cancer (MBC).
Karla was originally diagnosed with breast cancer in 2003 and underwent a bilateral mastectomy, chemo, and radiation. Eleven years later, in late 2014, she received a metastatic breast cancer diagnosis. This diagnosis did not align with her goal of living to be 100+, so she decided to do all that she could to manage this challenge. Karla embarked on a holistic healing journey to help herself regain optimal health and longevity. With her integrative approach to healing, she is blessed to report “no evidence of disease” since 2016! Her passion has led her to share what she has learned so that everyone with a diagnosis can have a better chance of overcoming the odds.
Karla has a Bachelor of Arts degree from DePaul University, Chicago with a focus in Project and Change Management. She received her health coaching certification from the Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy as well as the Radical Remission Project and is nationally board certified by the National Board of Health & Wellness Coaches (NBHWC).
