Dr. Kelly Turner
Kelly Turner, PhD is the New York Times bestselling author of Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds, now in 22 languages, which summarizes her research into the radical remission of cancer – when someone heals from cancer in a statistically unlikely way without Western medicine or after Western medicine has failed. Her highly anticipated new book, Radical Hope: 10 Key Healing Factors from Exceptional Survivors of Cancer & Other Diseases, is also now available!
Over the past decade, she has conducted research in 10 different countries and analyzed over 1,500 cases of radical remission. She is a frequent guest on The Dr. Oz Show 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 2019 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. A staged reading of this screenplay was held in October in NYC.
Finally, Kelly also developed a reality docuseries that covered each of the 10 healing factors from her research, and features many of the Radical Remission survivors from the book. This docuseries aired March 2020, and plans to air again in Fall 2020. 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.
