Suzy is the founder and director of HealingStrong. 

Her life story truly embodies the healing power of HealingStrong’s principles, and it’s a testament to the transformative impact this community can have.Suzy is married to Jeff, and they have two adult sons. When Suzy’s first family member was diagnosed with cancer in 1972, it marked the beginning of a difficult journey that saw a total of 10 family members pass away from the disease before Suzy’s own diagnosis.

In 2009, Suzy was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, which led to a journey of surgery and conventional treatment. However, when scans revealed lymph node involvement, Suzy began to explore more holistic approaches to healing, which ultimately led her to the Gerson Protocol, along with emotional healing, combined with growing closer to God through reading His Word and trusting His plan.

As friends and family watched Suzy’s transformation, they began to ask her to meet with their loved ones, and in 2012, aided by a friend who created the first website, Suzy started HealingStrong as a blog post. From there, it grew into a non-profit organization with the help of a group of other thrivers and caregivers who committed to bringing folks together at the first event, the 2013 HealingStrong Conference.  Most of those folks are still involved in HealingStrong today.

Suzy’s journey and her full protocol, ups and downs, and incredible stories from fellow cancer thrivers are detailed in her book, “Created to Heal Strong.” It’s available for free download below, and we highly recommend that you read it. Her story is an inspiration and a reminder that hope, healing, and transformation are possible, even in the face of tremendous challenges.

Thank you for being part of this incredible community, and for your dedication to supporting and uplifting one another. Together, we are making a difference, and we are blessed to have Suzy as our leader and guide.

Suzy is cancer-free and helps others with the HealingStrong team, made up of 97% volunteers whose commitment and support help others find truths, hope and healing.

She believes that in order to truly heal, we must address more then the tumor or disease that we find ourselves facing, we must also address emotional and soul wounds that have held us down too long, and embrace the One who created us to live with great purpose and intention to bring Him glory through our life’s journey.
