Cynthia Dano - Soap Lake, Washington AND Tuscon, AZ Area
“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.
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.

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.

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)

Her workshops in Charlottesville include a delicious vegetarian lunch that she makes herself. 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.”

Mary Ann McConnell, Michigan
Mary Ann’s 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 her ovary. It was then when she came upon Dr. Turners book.
After a radical abdominal hysterectomy, Mary Ann decided it was time to incorporate many of these factors outlined in the book into her life, even though the pathology report came back negative. She began sharing these factors with cancer and non cancer health challenged friends who also benefited greatly from this scientific based information in Kelly’s book. Now as a Radical Remission Certified Teacher, she am honored and thrilled to share Remission Research: 9 Key Factors for Health with others in her community!

Annette Meinzer - Cincinnati, Ohio
Passionate about facilitating empowerment, transformation, and healing in those who have been diagnosed with cancer as well as those seeking to prevent it, Annette Meinzer is a Certified Radical Remission Coach and Instructor.
Annette obtained her BSN in Nursing, is a Board Certified Nurse Coach, Certified Stress Management Instructor, Certified in Clinical Meditation and Imagery, and has received extensive training in energy healing therapies and Transpersonal Coaching. 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.

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.

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.

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 Zealand
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.

Julianne has also completed a Mindfulness workshop and uses mindfulness as a daily practice.

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.
