Cancer is a major concern in our environment, more so on Staten Island New York where women are 18x more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer than in all of New York City and State combined, and residents have a 87% higher rate of developing thyroid cancer. And what’s being done to reduce or address those risks? Nothing…unless you consider the $$ thousands earmarked to me spent on teaching residents how to “eat healthier and not smoke.” WTF’ery…yep, that’s what we thought too.
This show was filmed in November 2019 and is still extremely valid today! We’ve merely been delayed in filming our new documentary on Breast Cancer on Staten Island due to the pandemic and lack of funding. Can you believe we were denied a grant to produce the documentary because they stated they didn’t want to “hear more talking heads” about breast cancer. Apparently our documentary Messages of Hope was “enough talk about breast cancer” for the ones in charge of grant funding. So we turn to you, our viewers, to help us get the true message about Breast/Cancer on Staten Island out there. Please help by support this valuable documentary with a donation today.
Cancer Tamer TV Show hosts:
Dr. Charley Ferrer is a world-renowned Empowerment Speaker and award-winning author. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016 and thyroid cancer in 2017. Frustrated with the lack of information and treatment options provided to cancer patients, Dr. Charley established the Cancer Tamer Foundation dedicated in providing empowerment education for women (and men) diagnosed with breast cancer. In 2019, she wrote the play, Breast Cancer Diaries which premiered to a sold out crowd on Staten Island & Manhattan along with two documentary files: Messages of Hope and Faces of Breast Cancer. During the pandemic Dr. Charley was recognized by City & State Magazine as one of Staten Island’s Heros for her dedication in continuing to help empower women with breast cancer. Dr. Charley’s philosophy on breast cancer is realizing that cancer is not an “outside force” invading but an “inside force” residing. “It’s in our blood, our breasts, our DNA. In our attempts to destroy it, we are inadvertently destroying ourselves. Instead we should learn how to ‘tame’ cancer.” She not only talk about empowerment, she teaches others to do just that through her various workshops, television show, and numerous books on breast cancer. Dr. Charley’s revolutionary new way of thinking about breast cancer is turning heads, creating controversy, and reminding women (and men) that we should not be at war with our body! Check out her new book, Breast Cancer: From Diagnosis to Surgery.
