About the Author

Ruth Sackman, Co-founder and Former President
Foundation for Advancement in Cancer Therapy (F.A.C.T.)

Ruth Sackman, co-founder of F.A.C.T., served as the organization�s president for 37 years until her death in December 2008. As a young woman, she began as a seamstress and ultimately achieved success as a designer. With this success, she dedicated herself to raising her children and became active in her community.

Ruth�s life abruptly changed when her daughter, Arlene, was diagnosed with acute leukemia. Like most people at that time (late 1960s), Ruth was not knowledgeable about cancer treatments. Arlene underwent traditional chemotherapy and died a year later. The loss set Ruth on her lifelong quest to find another, better way to treat cancer.

In 1971, Ruth and her husband, Leon, co-founded F.A.C.T. from their home in New York City. Being head of F.A.C.T. gave Ruth the opportunity to hear from literally thousands of cancer patients worldwide over the years as they experienced the multitude of treatments available in both the conventional as well as non-conventional cancer areas. This gave her a vast understanding of these many therapies and their efficacy.

Ruth also personally investigated and consulted with hundreds of practitioners and medical clinics around the globe. She hosted a call-in health program on nationally-syndicated radio, as well as being a frequent guest on radio and TV shows nationwide, and was editor-in-chief of Cancer Forum, F.A.C.T.�s quarterly magazine.

Ruth authored two books, Rethinking Cancer and this book, Detoxification, that present F.A.C.T.�s guiding principles and the case studies of patients who followed F.A.C.T.�s metabolic/bio-repair approach and achieved long-term recovery. This is the core inspiration for the documentary film, Rethinking Cancer. For more information please visit
