About Us

Our Organization

HealingStrong is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.  Our mission is to connect, support, and educate individuals facing cancer and other diseases with holistic, evidence-based non-toxic therapies.  We provide resources, mentoring, training and support to groups around the world whose desire is to help others to heal strong and stay strong.

The kind hearts of our volunteer HealingStrong Group Leaders are succeeded by their passionate responses to others in the beginning, middle, or end of their healing journey. Every resource we have—monetary, time, people, experience, knowledge—goes directly to help educate those seeking a more natural holistic approach to help prevent disease, and combat illnesses effectively.

Vision and Core Belief

At HealingStrong, we believe in the God who saves, heals, loves, and cares immeasurably for you.  He does so in many ways, and one of them is through people. Our personal journeys have led us to lock arms with others who have incredible testimonials of success through implementing proven strategies that we want to share with the world. We believe that God created our bodies to be healthy, and that when His design of nutrition, exercise, emotional freedom, and spiritual peace is honored, then we can live in optimal health.  We seek to walk in healing and to help others become HealingStrong™ through building community – one group at a time.

“For I am the Lord, who heals you.” Exodus 15:26


We know our vision to impact change is achievable when we work together for a common goal. After our first conference in 2013 brought together some of the most committed pioneers in natural health for the very first time on the same stage (Chris Wark, Ty Bollinger, Cherie and Fr. John Calbom, Dr. Veronique Desaulniers, Robert Scott Bell, and Dr. Judy Seeger), we knew then that something very special had been ignited.  HealingStrong is a grassroots change-agent that is reaching communities around the world through people that have a story to tell, that includes information that is life-giving.  We equip and grow local patient to patient HealingStrong groups with comprehensive education curriculum and modules, leader training and resources that address mind, body and soul healing.  Our prayer is to have groups in every city, every state and every country around the world.

Coming together to encourage the masses will ignite change. We are better together! For more information please visit our HealingStrong Groups page.

Our Team

Suzy has served in various leadership positions in education and community health for over 25 years. In 2009, she was diagnosed with thyroid cancer. Her personal family losses coupled with extensive research and prayer led her to choose a holistic approach inspired by Dr. Max Gerson. HealingStrong started out of a desire to connect to others who need encouragement and hope and are choosing a route to heal that is unconventional.

Founder, President
Billy has been in management for 26 years. He developed a passion for natural remedies in treating cancer after he lost his youngest daughter to cancer, following conventional treatment of less than a year. His search for more information and ways to help others suffering with cancer lead him to HealingStrong. Billy's greatest joy is when people realize cancer does not have to be a death sentence and conventional treatments are not the only option.

A former school teacher, her life took a drastic turn when at 26, she was diagnosed with a rare form of lymphoma. Facing severe side-effects that included infertility from treatment, Cortney and her husband Kevin went on a quest to find non-toxic therapies. Now almost 10 years later, she and Kevin have 3 beautiful daughters, and Cortney has devoted her spare time to educating others and sharing her story on her blog anticancermom.com.

Diagnosed in 2011 with breast cancer, Christine decided against chemotherapy and instead chose to support her immune system with raw foods, supplementation, and detoxification. In 2013, she attended the first HealingStrong conference and realized then the importance of continuing face to face support. This led to the first HealingStrong group in Gainesville, GA. She mentors Group leaders and serves on Board of Directors.

Christine Holcomb, M.Fin

Studio artist turned filmmaker and business owner, Kevin was thrust into the world of cancer treatment when his wife Cortney was diagnosed just 3 months into their marriage in 2008. Prompted by an unshakable impression to pursue other options, Kevin led their prayerful decision to pursue non-toxic holistic cancer therapies. Today, with Cortney in full health, he welcomes the opportunity to share their journey and experience to help encourage others.

Kate holds a Ph.D. in Health Education from Texas A&M University. In 2010, she was diagnosed with uterine cancer. She didn’t fully understand non-toxic therapies until 2012 when she was diagnosed with a second cancer whose prognosis would've required extensive facial plastic surgery. She has chosen a non-toxic approach to healing that has dramatically changed her lifestyle and her own opinion and knowledge of healing cancer.

HealingStrong.org was created out of a passion to share our experience and hope in healing strong. Any recommended products or resources come directly from our own experience or from others we have encountered who are Healing Strong.


We have learned that our doctors are limited by the American Medical Association and Federal Drug Administration of what they can do to treat cancer. As a matter of fact, treatment of cancer in the U.S. by medical doctors is accomplished in one of three ways: surgery, radiation or chemotherapy. Anything else may be subject to a lawsuit and even loss of license. So, we first want to say – our goal is not to put down the medical establishment. No. Many medical conditions which would have been a death sentence 50 years ago are now easily cured with the advancements in medicine. However, while these advancements have made significant impact on other diseases and health problems, cancer is different. We are here to tell you what we have learned in our own journey to healing that was not readily available to us in our doctor’s offices. We want you to be empowered when you are making decisions about how best to treat YOUR body. HealingStrong is not licensed to provide medical advice, nor should it be a substitute for medical advice. This site is an education and learning site only. The information presented has not been approved by the FDA, AMA or any Federal or State agency. While you should consult a licensed, qualified medical physician for any issues concerning your health, we encourage you to also be a well-informed self advocate. In the end, the route you choose to heal is your choice. Heal strong!
