Have you experienced cancer in your self or a loved one?

Did you know that you and your kids CAN have a healthy life? It is possible and it can be simple. If you want to develop strategies to reduce your risk or your kids risk of developing cancer, or an improved chance at surviving cancer, then I can offer you my wisdom for the best chance at a long and healthful life.

Meet Aurelie

With over 40 years of experience as an Oncology Nurse, CNS, and/or Nurse Practitioner, I have seen many patients who have survived pneumonia, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, traumatic accidents, difficult upbringings, poor decisions and sometimes just bad luck.

I realize that sometimes life throws us a curve ball but what I know for sure is that some of these illnesses can be prevented, actually about 30-50% of cancers can be prevented when we know how and start during pregnancy, childhood and adolescence. I’m passionate about providing the right information to young families to reduce your risk and your children’s risk of cancer.  If you haven’t used any of these steps before, that is okay.  The important message is just to begin and continue the practice for good, better, best health and healing.

I bring research-based know-how to offer simple steps you can take to reduce you and your family’s risk of cancer. What I have observed is that most parents are working hard every day to give their kids a better life. I would love to offer you the opportunity of also giving you and your kids the chance of a healthier life and reduced risk of cancer!

Aurelie Cormier is the proud mother of a young adult daughter.   She has worked for over 40 years at some of our nation’s finest hospitals and has a specialty caring for people with cancer, particularly Women’s Cancers, Lymphoma, Multiple Myeloma, Sarcoma and GI Cancers.  She has been caring for patients on units including Chemotherapy, Surgical Oncology, Bone Marrow Transplant, Symptom Management, Palliative Care and end-of-life care for their cancers.

Aurelie’s instincts and passions have always been in the area of Prevention, Successful Survivorship, Healing, Wellness Promotion and Women’s Health. Her patients have taught her as much as she has taught them.  She has witnessed the impact of our changing foods, lifestyle, medications and environments on our health.   She has witnessed the benefits of technological advancements for the treatment of disease and believes, wholeheartedly, that we must balance these technological treatments with efforts and resources towards prevention and survivorship.  It is towards this end, that she birthed Beyond Cancer Survival in 2011 and most recently renamed it to W.E.L.L.N.E.S.S.© Parenting to give every family and child a chance for a healthy life.  Her companion online resources, was created to build a community of like-minded parents who are committed to building healthy families one step at a time.
