About our presenter: Dr. Charley Ferrer
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!
