Suzy is the founder and director of HealingStrong.  She is married to Jeff for 34 years, and they have two adult sons.  All of their family is involved in the organization, each having now experienced healing and wholeness because of the principles HealingStrong teaches. Suzy’s cancer story began in 1972 when her first family member was diagnosed with cancer, and following that, a total of 10 family members passed away from the disease prior to Suzy’s own diagnosis.  In 2009, Suzy was diagnosed with thyroid cancer.  After surgery and conventional treatment failed and subsequent scans revealed lymph node involvement, she took a very different route to healing that was revealed after much prayer and research. 

After a friend and co-worker sent her a book called Knockout by Suzanne Somers, that led to more research in the field of holistic healing.  She ultimately chose to focus on a combination of the Gerson Protocol that aggressively focuses on nutrition and detoxification, emotional healing and a dedication to growing closer to her Heavenly Father through reading God’s Word and learning to trust His plan and purposes.

When friends and family were witnessing the transformation, they would ask Suzy to meet with their loved ones and with the help of a dear friend who created the first website in 2012, Suzy began HealingStrong as a blog post. That led to a gathering of friends and fellow cancer thrivers whose commitment and service started HealingStrong, the non-profit organization a year later and the very first event: 2013 HealingStrong Conference. You can read more about Suzy’s Story, her full protocol, ups and downs, along with dear friends whom she met along the way who were also in a fight for their lives and beat the odds.
