DON’T LOOK — DON’T FIND is the comment from the State Health Department spokesman at the November meeting addressing the cancer crisis on Staten Island. Not only that, but they blamed Boro President James Oddo for “causing” the staggering statistics which confirmed Staten Island has 69% more thyroid cancer than NY State as a whole and 67% more thyroid cancer rates than all of NYC combined. As for the toxicity of the island and ways to mitigate it’s effects, residents were told, “eat better, exercise and don’t smoke.” The official also announced they would be providing over $675,000 to a company to remind you of that fact. What about cleaning up the toxicity of the island? Well, that wasn’t the topic of the day or even the decade.
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 which focuses on education and empowerment 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. Her 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 states and teaches others to do just that through her various workshops, television show, and upcoming CELEBRATE LIFE Conference coming 2020. Dr. Charley’s revolutionary new way of thinking about 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.
