About Elyn

ej portrait 150res

Elyn is a certified cancer coach and strategist and a two-time breast cancer survivor. She empowers men and women to successfully navigate the process of treatment and care. Elyn knows that cancer treatment requires an individualized plan, as every cancer is unique and there is not one plan for treatment that fits the needs of all–and she knows that healing often requires diverging from the medical standard of care. All too often people are are pushed into a path for treatment that does not suit his or her core needs or desires. Many people find it a challenge to find a doctor who can hear and respond to their opinions and questions, and who dismiss holistic treatment options.

Elyn’s own experiences with breast cancer enables her to deeply understand the questions and concerns faced by those affected by cancer. Her mission is to ensure that her client’s voice is heard and her goal is to help people find the right treatment, doctors, and post cancer care–and most importantly, to discover and correct the root cause of one’s cancer. Elyn has published in the peer-reviewed  Journal of Cancer Biology and Treatment and Archives of General Internal Medicine.

Learn how you can help prevent recurrence and minimize the treatment side effects and resulting effects that compromise your health and well-being. Empower yourself to go beyond the current standard of care to resolve the reason for your cancer and to heal yourself of cancer.

While Elyn is grateful to have received the 2013 Best of Manhattan award and the Breast Cancer Wellness 2014 Ambassador of the Year award, the most important reward is helping others to improve not just quantity of life, but quality of life as well. Elyn knows that it is not enough to treat cancer; the goal is to beat cancer. Her goal is making the lives of cancer patients as long and high-quality as possible. She is passionate about helping others get past their cancer and into cancer-free lives.

Elyn was the former Executive Director for the Emerald Heart Cancer Foundation. Emerald Heart’s mission was to support women in integrative and holistic cancer care.  This role allowed Elyn to further assist women as they battled cancer and claimed a life of health and wellness. Sadly, a lack of donations forced her and the group to step back from their efforts.

Elyn hosted the Survive and Live Well Radio Show on W4CS, The Cancer Support Network for over five years.   While she is no longer recording new shows, you can replay some on YouTube.

  4. Thank you for this information. I’m very interested in natural treatments, since I refused Tamoxifen 4 years ago, after my breast cancer, because of all the listed side effects.

    • Thank you Ann, did you read my article on Natural Alternatives to Tamoxifen? You can find the link at the bottom of this page. Wishing you continued wellness, Elyn
