Live with passion,
Dr. Charley Ferrer
CEO & Founder
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 audience 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 instead it’s an “inside force” residing. “It’s in our blood, our breasts, our DNA and in our attempts to destroy it, we are inadvertently destroying ourselves. Instead, we should learn how to ‘tame’ cancer” because we shouldn’t be at war with our bodies. Dr. Charley Ferrer teaches various workshops on living and thriving despite breast cancer. She’s the host of our popular television show. For 2020, she is spearheading our CELEBRATE LIFE Conference: Navigating Breast Cancer & Discovering Holistic Alternatives. This conference is the first of it’s kind on Staten Island. Dr. Charley’s revolutionary new way of thinking about cancer is turning heads, creating controversy, and reminding women (and men) that that life isn’t merely about surviving, it’s about THRIVING despite cancer. Check out her book series on breast cancer and be among the first to pre-Order her new book: The Ultimate Guide to Navigating Breast Cancer coming March 1, 2020.
