Cynthia Dano - Soap Lake, Washington

“Carpe Diem!” has always been Cynthia’s motto, but never more than after she heard the words, “You have late stage and a rare type of ovarian cancer” in 2014. Health and healing became her new job (which she termed Radical Self-Care) and in that voyage she was led to Dr. Kelly Turner and the Radical Remission Project. Dr. Turner’s research validated the steps that Cynthia had unwittingly used in her healing. It seemed like a fortuitous omen. 

She is a lover of life and adventure and has worn many hats-ballet dancer, actor/director, professional photographer, legal assistant, mother, wife, and owner of a wine bar/art gallery. After her diagnosis, the focus became to help others, especially in their cancer journey. She became a certified life/health coach ( or as she calls it… “a life [re] imagined coach”) in 2016 and Radical Remission Coach in 2018. She leads Mindfulness workshops and is a level one Reiki practitioner. 

In her spare time, she is a volunteer team leader for Global Volunteers and has led teams of volunteers to the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana, Cuba and to the Appalachians in West Virginia. She is Vice President of the Board of Columbia Basin Cancer Foundation, Moses Lake, WA. 

She is honored and excited to be a Radical Remission coach and workshop leader and helping others to incorporate the 9 healing factors into their lives. She is available for workshops in WA, OR, ID, MT and AZ.

In large and small workshops, Cindy trains groups in SEL, facilitates creative expression circles, and hosts integrative parenting classes.

Cindy’s passion for synthesizing knowledge and experience across various disciplines allows for a very personalized approach to connecting with and assisting others in discovering their own empowered journey to optimal health and wholeness.

After receiving a brain tumor diagnosis in 2015, Cindy began practicing all 9 Factors in Dr. Kelly Turner’s book:  Radical Remission.  Cindy completed the Radical Remissions course in 2016 and in 2017 went on to train with Dr. Turner to become a RR Workshop Facilitator.  Today, Cindy is a Radical Remissions Survivor and certified Health and Wellness Coach, specializing in holistic nutrition, cultivating intuition, somatic awareness, and integrative oncology.

Solange Klingensmith - Southern California

Solange (Sol) was born in Santiago, Chile and has lived in various Latin American countries; she is fluent in Spanish, Portuguese and English.
She began her career in Psychology, and when her four sons were born was motivated to study Education. She spent many years teaching in a classroom and raising her sons. When her last son went to college she went on a pilgrimage (the Camino de Santiago) in Spain. Her long walks in nature and the people she met ignited her instincts; she listened and founded “Cook to Heal – Health & Wellness Coaching,” a venture that helps individuals become empowered by knowledge in their healing journey.
She first encountered cancer when her then fiancée (age 24), was diagnosed with stage IV melanoma. He survived and is thriving in their 40-year marriage. They have both been diagnosed with non-melanoma skin cancers.
Sol was introduced to the Radical Remission project by one of her clients. Dr. Turner’s book inspired Sol to take the Radical Remission Teacher Training and continue to provide the tools that people need to create their optimal wellness and feel empowered. The nine healing factors are healthy life-style alternatives relevant to all people. The factors speak of prevention, hope and the possibilities on how to prevail over many health challenges.
Sol is a Mayo Clinic Certified Health and Wellness Coach, a National Board-Certified Health and Wellness Coach, a Nutritionist, and the founder of Cook to Heal – Health & Wellness Coaching. Please visit http://www.cooktoheal.com/services/ for more information.

Lodi Loder - Portland, OR

Lodi found Radical Remission in 2014 in the midst of her own healing challenge, overcoming metastatic melanoma. Kelly Turner’s book, as well as the stories of other survivors on the Radical Remission database, confirmed what Lodi had believed was missing in cancer care- the whole person, multi-faceted approach. Up until then, conventional medicine and even many alternative approaches to cancer that she encountered were primarily focused on the physical body. And yet, the psychological and emotional, as well the spiritual components of her life were completely overlooked. Dr. Turner’s extensive research
not only offered a more complete view of healing for Lodi but gave her a strong sense of hope and empowerment. Hope that healing was in fact possible for her, and empowerment to take on the role of CEO of her own health. Lodi was so passionate about Dr Turner’s work that when the opportunity arose to take part in the first Radical Remission Teacher Training with Kelly Turner she jumped at the chance. Since then she has also become certified as a Radical Remission coach. With her background in teaching, experience as a cancer patient, and Radical Remission teacher certification, Lodi is knowledgeable, experienced and inspired to share what she has learned with others.

Lodi holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology and a Master of Arts in Teaching.

Kirstin Lynch - Sammamish, Wisconsin (Seattle Area)

Kirstin is an inspirational guide to health and wellness. Her unique perspective and approach builds on a strong medical foundation, experience in the pharmaceutical industry, a deep interest in complementary and alternative approaches, and significant personal experience supporting family, friends, and herself, through cancer.

Kirstin is a Registered Nurse (RN), who qualified at the world-famous Nightingale School of Nursing, in London. She is also registered in California and Washington (pending).  Kirstin also holds B.Sc. in Psychology from the University of Westminster, London, where she studied psychoneuroimmunology (the effect of the mind on the immune system) and a Master’s in Forensic Psychology at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York. In addition to her many years nursing, Kirstin spent several years in the pharmaceutical industry, where she was involved in the education of medical personnel in the advances of mental health therapies.

Kirstin’s son was born with Neurofibromatosis 1, a rare genetic disorder that has resulted in three brain tumors and many non-tumor related complications.  Due to limited treatments for his condition, Kirstin has spent 15 years researching and implementing alternative and complimentary therapies to aid in his well-being. This background helped Kirstin greatly when she was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer (she has been cancer free for five years now). Kirstin also been an inspirational guide to other friends and family members with cancer and other major diseases, and is currently guiding her husband, who was recently diagnosed with stage IV melanoma, to thrive and live a full and productive life.

Kirstin views Dr. Turners work as providing a comprehensive roadmap for approaching a cancer diagnosis. It provides hope and practical tools that can be used to help your immune system fight the disease and to heal at an emotional, spiritual and/or physical level. Kirstin would love to share this invaluable knowledge with you.

Lindsay Beane - Baltimore, Maryland

Lindsay Beane, DrPH, is a public health expert who has worked in Baltimore’s impoverished neighborhoods for 25 years. Though she herself has never been diagnosed with cancer, she lost her mother to lung cancer and was also faced by her second son’s diagnosis with an incurable lung-GI disease called cystic fibrosis. Though he was only a baby, she started him on a regimen of acupuncture, osteopathic treatments, homeopathic remedies, nutritional supplements, and herbal tonics. Over time, Lindsay watched intently as her son transitioned from a very sick baby into a lively boy and, today, a strong and healthy young man.

Because she valued alternative approaches, Lindsay was immediately drawn to Dr. Kelly Turner’s book (Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds) when it was published in 2014. She knew that the 9 healing factors described in the book would be of benefit to anyone, with or without cancer. In 2017, Lindsay was excited to complete Dr. Turner’s Radical Remission Teacher Training.

Lindsay is available to teach a 6-session “Radical Remission: 9 Healing Factors” Workshop for groups of 5 to 15, either in informal home settings or institutional settings (hospitals, primary care and wellness clinics, cancer treatment centers, senior citizen centers, churches, etc.). The Workshop fee is $149 per person, with a limited number of discounts available based on need. Lindsay will be happy to provide an Introductory Session (1 ½ hours and free of charge) for groups wishing to learn more before they commit to the cost of a full Workshop. She serves the Maryland-Delaware-Pennsylvania area.

You can read Lindsay’s Radical Remission HEALING STORY of the MONTH (March 2017) about her son here. You can also read her public health essays and excerpts from her soon-to-be-published memoir about her son’s journey, Embracing The Dragon, on her website: www.LindsayBeane.com.

Irina E. Bock, MD - Chester, New Jersey

Irina is an inspirational health and life coach who draws from her unique qualifications in conventional and non-conventional medicine, combined with her personal experience as a cancer patient and healer. She holds the hand of people going through significant health challenges and helps them find their footing, courage and their own clear path through the jungle of confusing options and hard decisions.

As a physician, trained in OB/GYN, Irina worked in Germany and the US (George Washington University). In addition to her roots in conventional medicine, she received an education in complementary medicine for physicians and is certified in different energy healing modalities.

Irina strongly believes that cancer – and other chronic diseases – can be healed and even be prevented by addressing and balancing out the whole person – mind, body and spirit. She feels when it comes to healing, keeping an open mind is important. Whatever brings results should be considered, and no method discounted. For Irina, integrating ‘Western’ and ‘Eastern’ medicine – tailored to each person – has the potential of achieving outcomes that are truly the “Best of Two Worlds”.

As a survivor of two BRCA cancers (melanoma and advanced breast cancer) and a mother of three, Irina knows first-hand what a cancer diagnosis means for a family, especially when it is related to an inherited gene mutation. Yet, Irina believes that no person is a victim of their genes or diagnosis. Her experience in integrative medicine and trust in energy healing helped her approach her own cancer with a positive mindset, strong faith and deep intuition. Drawing from both conventional as well as non-conventional options, she was able to achieve complete remission against all odds and has been cancer-free for seven years.

When Irina read Dr. Kelly Turner’s book ‘Radical Remission’, published soon after Irina’s own fight against cancer, she recognized the significance of the material right away. The nine factors described by Dr. Turner matched exactly what Irina’s own intuition had guided her to do in order to heal herself. Irina is passionate about bringing this wisdom to the attention of as many people as possible.

As a Duke-trained Integrative Health Coach and Holistic Life Coach (certified by the Wisdom of the Whole Coaching Academy), Irina especially feels drawn towards working with people who face a life-changing diagnosis and guiding them out of their fear into an empowered role to conquer their health challenges with courage and a positive spirit.

Irina is certified in the following modalities:

-Radical Remission – 9 Factors (Certified Teacher and Coach)
-Energy- and Vibrational Healing: Integrative Energy Therapy (Master Teacher), Reiki (Master), Sound and Vibrational Therapy (Level III Therapist), Bach Flower Therapy
-Evidence-Based Plant-Based Nutrition (Cornell Certificate, Prof. T. Colin Campbell)

A serious diagnosis brought her back to the mind-body focus, and now Mariah does workshops to help other people in their healing process.

Mariah is excited to be offering workshops to help people stay empowered in their healing process by applying the “9 Radical Remission Principles”

In Mariah’s words:

I want to share this information with cancer patients and their families so they are more prepared than I was when I started my healing journey. I know so many things now that I wish I had known when I was diagnosed. I felt like I was shooting in the dark and making it up 10 years ago after my diagnosis. Now we have a map, and I look forward to sharing this to help others navigate their way.”

John Henry – Brick, NJ, Jersey Shore Area

John is a lifelong educator and currently develops and leads training programs in his role as a STEAM, (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) and Sustainable Schools Specialist at the New Jersey School Boards Association. His passion in his professional role allows him to help promote healthy schools for the 1.4 million children in NJ. 

As you may expect, receiving a diagnosis of cancer has a way of sending anyone into a state of fear. That is exactly how he felt in 2014 after learning he had hairy cell leukemia. However, six months into his diagnosis, he discovered the Radical Remission Project™. As a result, fear turned into hope and possibility, and new healing modalities came into view as John began following the 9 key healing factors. 

He began with radically changing his diet, slowly integrated exercise, eliminated stress and eventually added the other key healing factors. The results were a stabilization of the progression of the leukemia for almost 4 years. He is currently collaborating with HealTHY Life NJ, an organization whose mission is to support, educate and raise funds for late-stage cancer patients seeking integrative and complementary treatments. Through HealTHY Life NJ, John speaks to cancer patients and shares with them his journey and healing modalities. 

John completed the Radical Remission Workshop Teacher Training at Omega Institute. He is a Certified Radical Remission™ Workshop Facilitator and Speaker, as well as a leukemia survivor & thriver. In addition to serving the adult community, with his background in K-12 education, John has set an intention to bring the Radical Remission Project™ to schools so children can learn about radical health and wellness as an educational best practice.

Mary Ann McConnell - Michigan

My professional history is in marketing and sales but alternative healing practices have always been a keen interest from adolescence thru adulthood. Several years ago after an annual routine physical, a grapefruit size tumor was found attached to my ovary. It was then when I came upon Dr. Turners book. After a radical abdominal hysterectomy, I decided it was time to incorporate many of these factors outlined in the book into my life, even though the pathology report came back negative. I began sharing these factors with cancer and non cancer health challenged friends who also benefitted greatly from this scientific based information in Kelly’s book. Now as a Radical Remission Certified Teacher, I am honored and thrilled to share Remission Research: 9 Key Factors for Health with others in my community!

Beth Schroeder - Moorestown, New Jersey

Owner of Simply Health LLC since 2009, Beth continues in a clinical and integrative private practice to assist patients with cancer or chronic illness to make dietary and lifestyle changes. Beth brings both passion and dedication to improving her patient’s current quality of life and overall survival. 

When someone is told by their doctor that they have a disease (cancer, diabetes, heart concern) they often begin treatments that include medications, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation or other interventions. Rarely are they instructed about eating fewer processed foods or adding more plant-based foods to support their treatment options. 

As a Certified Nutrition Specialist ® practitioner, and licensed dietitian-nutritionist I have been guiding patients back to health by being as committed to their nutritional intake as they and their medical team are committed to a treatment path. I do this because I know how nutritional intake and lifestyle change profoundly affect overall survival and quality of life alongside medical intervention. I am living proof. 

Having undergone aggressive medical treatment (1998) for an aggressive breast cancer that included all standard therapies, I pursued macrobiotic and plant-based foods to bolster my weakened immune system due to treatment to conquer this disease. That was nearly twenty years ago, before there was much research to support dietary intervention. I am a current survivor of stage 4, metastatic cancer (2016) and continue to awe my own oncology team with improving markers and recovery toward greater remission. 

I earned a Master of Science degree in Nutrition at Maryland University of Integrative Health, which included extensive clinical nutrition, integrative health strategies and research to expand my practice related to the benefits of plant-based foods improving outcomes from a diagnosis of chronic and life-threatening diseases. At MUIH, I continue as adjunct faculty in the Nutrition Department for online courses.

Although her doctor was quite certain that the cancer would return, there has been no reoccurrence, and at present, no HPV virus has been detected in her body.

Because of her own experience, Mana wants to spread  Dr. Turner’s research to many people in the world. Her future goals include giving Radical Remission workshops / coaching opportunities to the Japanese speaking population.

Karla Mans Giroux – Hawthorn Woods, Illinois (NW Chicago suburbs)

Karla was recently “released” from the corporate world and is joyfully pursuing what she wants to be when she grows up! For 18 years she was striving and climbing within the Information Technology (IT) department at a large organization. As the Global Head of Change and Communications the past 5 years, Karla knows just how hard change can be for people. She also knows how important it can be, and never more important than when faced with a life-threatening disease.

With her knowledge of change management practices and her passion to heal the world she has embarked on a healing and learning journey to help herself and others regain optimal health and longevity. She has become a health coach and is thrilled to be able to offer Radical Remission coaching and workshops to those on a cancer journey, as well as those seeking prevention.

Karla was originally diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2003 and underwent a mastectomy, chemo and radiation. When her 10-year “cancer-versary” rolled around in 2013 she celebrated her good health and thought she was in the clear! However, a second metastatic cancer challenge arose in late 2014. With a long-time goal to live to be 100 this did not align!

As a striver (aka Type A personality) she left no stone unturned and began utilizing natural, holistic healing modalities and non-toxic interventions to supplement more conventional ones. She has successfully harnessed the power of her body, mind, heart and spirit for healing; achieving and maintaining great results. She is passionate about empowering others to successfully do the same for whatever challenges they are facing.

Karla still has every intention of making it to 100 (maybe even 120) and with the strength of optimism and a positive spirit she is loving every moment on that journey! Join her in December 2065 for the party of a century!

She has been entrenched in the field of Mind-Body-Spirit Healing and Holistic/Integrative medicine where the whole person is incorporated into the care and healing process for the past 14 years. She believes that we can take an active role in our healing process which will strengthen our immune system and could lead to radical remission.

Annette began her conquest into alternative healing techniques and remission after both her husband and mom were diagnosed with cancer in 2003 and 2005. She resides in the Cincinnati, Ohio area and is a mother of five children. While she did lose her mom to cancer her husband was able to recover although unfortunately passed away in 2015 to other causes. Through these challenges she developed an inner strength and resilience and learned the art of pushing forward and living again despite the obstacles and adversities that we are challenged with. She learned how to move on from the “moment of impact”, whether it is due to a diagnosis or loss, to the creation of a new life filled with joy, peace, and love. Her mission in life is to now assist others and walk with them on this journey.

Annette would love the opportunity to connect virtually with you, from anywhere in the world, through video-conferencing. Please contact her for details.

Justine Laidlaw - Tauranga, Bay of Plenty, New Zealand

At 45 years old Justine was diagnosed with a Stage 3 aggressive colon cancer. She embarked on an enlightening journey to find out the best possible course of treatment to stay alive and healthy. Her father had passed away of colon cancer which made her realise that she didn’t want to go down the conventional path of healing.  Justine opted to have surgery but opted out of the traditional treatment options and decided she could help heal herself by using integrative and holistic methods. No Chemo & No Radiation! Justine understood that a bigger part of her healing would involve continual exploration into what her body, mind and soul needed on a day to day basis. Justine is now cancer free 5 years from diagnosis.

Justine found “Radical Remission” at an integrative clinic she took a friend to for his cancer treatment a couple of years after her diagnosis, and soon discovered that she had applied the 9 healing factors into her journey towards wellness.

Her cancer journey has led her to train as a life coach and Integrative Nutrition Health Coach where she’s works with cancer patients, helping them to navigate their own healing path. She also has an ozone therapy business and runs a prostate cancer support group for men in her region. 

Justine traveled from New Zealand to attend the Radical Remission Teacher Training in 2017.

Julianne O’Brien - Greenhithe, Auckland, New Zealanda

Julianne trained at our inaugural Radical Remission Workshop Teacher Training in 2017.

After receiving a diagnosis of Triple Negative Stage 3 Breast Cancer in 2015 and a mastectomy Julianne’s journey began in looking further at Mind-Body-Spirit Healing. Julianne had lost her sister earlier to a brain aneurism. Her mother carries the Lynch Gene and has had ovarian and bowel cancer. Julianne did not wish her family to go through any more grief and she decided to research what was available to heal both herself and her mother. She was recommended the book Radical Remission that had recently been published and this resonated with what Julianne was looking for. Having her three daughters in her care and her sister’s daughter living with her as well, she had a very strong reason for living.

Julianne completed 1year of Human Development Training in 1996 and has always had an interest in Holistic & Integrative Medicine. She completed a course in Thought Field Therapy in 2004. She has also been chairperson of Breast Cancer Network. During this time Julianne worked with a team of women who organised workshops and published a tri monthly magazine with current information on healing through mind body and spirit. Julianne has also completed a Mindfulness workshop and uses mindfulness as a daily practice. 

Following the 9 Factors of Radical Remission has shown Julianne that the power of healing her body has given her an insight into an overall improvement of her health. She is passionate about sharing this with people in her community by facilitating Radical Remission Workshops. 

Julianne is the mother of three daughters. She lives on a lifestyle block in the community of  Greenhithe on Auckland’s North Shore. After Julianne’s diagnosis she planted her own organic garden and thrived on feeding her body with organic vegetables from her garden. Julianne previously had her own café and worked as a chef in a retirement home. She believes that teaching people how to grow their own vegetables and make healthy whole food meals is a step in healing the body. She also completely detoxified her home and has a list of natural homemade products that you can make on a budget to eradicate toxins in your environment. Julianne has learnt to listen to her intuition and it is through this she has found her passion in life, to share what she has learnt with others. As she has found this has given her a new lease on her life and she fill’s every day with those things that bring her love, laughter and peace.

Julianne will be offering Radical Remission Workshops in New Zealand in the future.
