Suzy Griswold, MPH
Founder and President
Suzy has served in various roles in education and community health for 30 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. Her vision for HealingStrong started out of a desire to connect to life giving hope and empower patients with healing truths.
Jeff Griswold
Board of Directors
Jeff Griswold is married to Suzy and has served HealingStrong since day 1. You will often find him behind the scenes preparing videos or directoring the conferences. Married for 31+ years, he loves all things soccer, and being Dad to their two adult sons. Jeff’s passion is getting the stories of hope into the hands of those who need it most.
Billy Echols
Board of Directors, Vice President
Billy 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.
Kathy Everett
Board of Directors, HealingStrong@Home Mentor
After seeing many loved ones suffer and eventually pass away from conventional cancer treatment, Kathy, a certified holistic nutritional counselor began learning more about non-toxic cancer therapies. She now teaches natural health classes and has also created a natural and non­toxic skin and hair care line called Radiant Essentials.
Christine Holcomb, M.FIN
Board of Directors, Treasurer
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 her to start the first group in Gainesville, GA.
