Healing Cancer is F.A.C.T.'s most comprehensive publication to date — an important contribution to our library of educational materials.

The book is a treasure trove of practical information by an expert with unique in-depth experience and historical perspective. Many, indeed, have said that it's the next best thing to picking up the phone and talking to Ruth, as literally thousands of people were able to do over the course of her 38 years at the helm of the foundation.

Besides Ruth's 60 plus articles on a wide range of topics and an Introduction that reads at times like a thriller, this 350-page volume contains an Appendix with "The Packet" — the over 100 page compendium provided to all new patients, featuring case histories, guidance on diet, detox, adjunctive therapies, and much more — never before available to the general public. Healing Cancer is lively and thought-provoking. We think you'll be very glad to have it at your fingertips.

About the Author

Consuelo Reyes, is President of FACT and Executive Producer of the new documentary Rethinking Cancer. She earned a B.A. graduating Cum Laude in Russian Literature and Language from Barnard College in 1969, including a semester at Leningrad University in 1968.

Reyes had planned a career in the Diplomatic Corp, but the sturm and drang of the '60s intervened. Soon after starting classes in Broadcast Journalism at Stanford University, Consuelo left to become a reporter/interviewer at the fledgling radio station KQED-FM in San Francisco, now an NPR member station. While at KQED, Reyes covered the intensifying anti-war and counter-culture movements, including the burgeoning trend toward natural foods and healing. After several years, her increasing interest in health led Reyes to leave radio and resume her lifelong love of sports –tennis, in particular, training and teaching professionally in Austria and Florida. Through this experience, Reyes became fascinated with finding new ways to achieve optimum athletic performance through a more natural lifestyle, though she was often frustrated with the deluge of conflicting information about how to achieve this.

In late 1987 a close friend received a diagnosis of breast cancer and was determined to avoid conventional treatment. Consuelo devoured everything she could find about alternative ways of healing the disease (these were pre-Google days, so it wasn't easy). In a book called Cancer Survivors by Judith Glassman, she was attracted to a mention of The Foundation for Advancement in Cancer Therapy (FACT) and its nutrition-based approach. Reyes contacted FACT president Ruth Sackman, whose strong, gravel voice and logical, down-to-earth advice sounded highly intriguing to the natural health seeker. In early 1988, the two met and bonded almost immediately.

To Consuelo, FACT was the embodiment of her '60s ideals – undertaking innovative and challenging work towards an important cause. She became Ruth's assistant for the next 20 years and, in 1997, was named to FACT’s Board of Trustees.

Since Ruth's death in 2008, Reyes has served as President of FACT and as a chief facilitator of the creation of Rethinking Cancer, a new documentary designed to broadly disseminate information about the FACT championed bio-repair approach to the prevention and treatment of cancer and other serious diseases.
