Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I choose BeatCancer.org over all the options out there?
For over 30 years, BeatCancer.org has been raising money for education — not just additional research. Our prevention programs focus on true prevention not just early detection. The programs we’ve designed for diagnosed patients focus on building up the patient rather than destroying the tumor.
How do I know which tier is right for me?
Tier 1 = Patient/Caregiver
If you’re a patient, caregiver, or someone seeking prevention information, you can start with Tier 1.
Tier 2 = Educator/Speaker
If you’re looking to become an educator or speaker, we recommend Tier 2.
Tier 3 = Certified Holistic Cancer Coach
If you’re ready to become a Certified Holistic Cancer Coach (or want to coach someone with cancer), you can jump right to Tier 3.
Can I switch tiers once I’ve signed up?
Absolutely—you can upgrade to another tier at any time. You’ll just be charged the difference between the cost of your current tier and the one you’d like to move up to.
What will I learn?
With BeatCancer.org’s program, you’ll learn to believe in the healing powers of good food, healthy habits, and science-backed information. By taking one of our courses, you’ll receive essential educational resources that you can use to fight cancer, prevent cancer, or support someone living with cancer.
How long does each tier take to complete?
Depending on how much experience and education in the related subject matter you have and how much time you can devote to the course, it could take a few weeks to a few months.
Do any of the courses expire?
No, all tiers are self-paced and never expire, however membership at the coach level requires a renewal fee of $100 per year or $10 per month after one year from purchase.
Do I need any formal education or professional experience to sign up for any of the courses?
No, you just need a passion to learn and a passion to help others.
I signed up to become a Certified Holistic Cancer Coach. What support do you offer once I receive my certification?
We have a profile page that lists our coaches and their bio information for prospective clients. There is also the option to be featured on our site and Facebook page through our “Intro to a Coach” blog. Here, our large member base can get to know you and your business more personally.
I live in another country. Will your courses pertain to other cultures?
Our courses are based on over 40 years of experience, as well as research compiled by our founder, Susan Silberstein. Cancer is a universal disease and what is involved in healing is true for all cultures worldwide.
Do I need insurance to coach?
Since you are not providing medical advice you do not need insurance. However, it is always good to have liability insurance, especially as it is very inexpensive.
As a coach, can I log back in to refer to the course in the future?
Yes, you can refer to the course for up to a year and as long as your membership is renewed after your first year. You can also download and print some of the materials.
Is there continuing education?
Our website and coach-dedicated Facebook page are updated with new information on a regular basis. However, adding new modules is in the works.
How much does it cost to renew as a coach each year? What are the benefits of renewing?
Renewal is $100 a year or $10 per month. This fee allows you to continue being listed on our profile page. It also allows you the benefits of membership, including the log-on site and Facebook page, affiliate privileges, access to our naturopathic doctor, and use of our logo and materials. (always adding new material for our coaches)
What do I have to do to renew? Do I have to buy anything?
We will send you an email and an invoice yearly. There is only the $100 fee. Nothing else to buy.
Do I have to purchase any other materials?
No, our course fee is inclusive.
Do I get a discount on buying your materials?

Am I allowed to answer medical questions?

Should I charge clients for my services?
When you dedicate yourself to your client's highest healing good and you dedicate your time to education, research, knowledge, heart and passion—thus helping cancer patients/families/survivors live well and thrive through diagnosis, treatment or prevention—you also deserve to be paid. Your time is precious. Your dedication through hours are all for healing. Through our experience, most people will not receive the healing they truly need without some sort of balance or exchange. As coaches, we provide proven integrative tools and information for healing cancer, which help so many. When you do everything with a pure heart—helping all the people God sends your way—you help create the right environment for healing. And thus, empowering them with hope and knowledge! A priceless gift!
