Biography

Beverlye Hyman Fead is an author, speaker, photographer, cancer survivor and aging

advocate.

After being told she had two months to live in 2002, Beverlye opted for an experimental

treatment that helped her survive Stage IV uteral stromal sarcoma. She went to three

different doctors who wanted her to do immediate, rigorous, standard treatment. She did

not believe that was how she wanted to live the rest of her life after seeing her

grandmother, mother and two sisters die of cancer before her.

She continued going until she found two doctors, Dr. Charles Forscher of Cedar Sinai

and Dr. Frederick Eilbur of UCLA, who went out of the box and prescribed an

experimental treatment of hormone blockers, passed it through the tumor board, and

fourteen years later she is still living well and managing her cancer. That’s why she is a

strong advocate of getting more than one opinion.

Although, she lives with her cancer, she leads a very full life, exercising, traveling,

writing, speaking and using her photography skills on nature. She brought her best self to

the table for cancer and as she aged she realized how important it was to be proactive

with growing older. She has turned her attention to aging in better health. She was

fortunate enough to have made the right choices and has lived with her manageable

cancer for thirteen and a half years.

In 2002, Beverlye wrote I Can Do This: Living with Cancer, Tracing a Year of Hope.

The book has motivated people around the world to be proactive and get as many

opinions as needed until they are confident in their protocol. Her second award-winning

book, which she co-wrote with her granddaughter, Tessa, titled Nana, What’s Cancer?

answers questions children might have regarding the disease.

In addition to her writing, Beverlye shares her inspiring story of courage and hope with

others, speaking at events around the country. In 2008, she was named a Hero of Hope by

the American Cancer Society and serves as an ongoing Legislative Ambassador for the

ACS.

In 2009, she received the Courage Award from the Sarcoma Foundation of America as

well as the Gift of Life Award from the Jennifer Diamond Cancer Foundation.

In 2010, she wrote and produced a short documentary, Stage IV: Living With Cancer. It

has won many awards in film festivals, and is on websites and in cancer centers all over

the country.

Beverlye has appeared on CNN Health and CBS News, and her book Nana, What’s

Cancer? has been featured on Good Morning, America. She writes for the Huffington

Post and has appeared on national radio shows. She has published her third book Aging in

High Heels, which she took from her blog by the same name.

She has been just been asked to be an advocate for Global Healthspan Priority Institute

(GHPI) in Washington DC and is grateful she has been given the opportunity to raise

funds before the Senate and Congress for her two passions, cancer and aging.

In these bonus years she has been given, her objective is to pay it forward to those

coming up behind her.

Beverlye Hyman Fead is 81 years old and is indeed Aging In High Heels.
