Mike and Joyce speak with Berit Eberhardt, Division head for Kidney Cancer at the House of Life (Das Lebenshaus) in Germany.
Das Lebenshaus is a non-profit organization providing information and support for those affected by rare solid tumors: gastro-intestinal stromal tumors (GIST), Sarcoma, and Kidney Cancer.
Berit studied economics and worked as a project manager in a global information technology company. Her life changed when her boyfriend was diagnosed with kidney cancer. As a caregiver, Berit got in touch with Das Lebenshaus and read and learned a lot about the disease and the various possible treatments. Unfortunately, her boyfriend died just one year after his diagnosis, at the age of 39.
Half a year after his death she began a patient support group in Berlin. A few months later she became the manager of Kidney Cancer at Das Lebenshaus. She has broadened her commitment to Kidney Cancer and is an active participant in global events such as the International Kidney Cancer Coalition and the International events sponsored by the Kidney Cancer Association.

Combining his unique natural approach with his advanced medical training, Dr. Silver promotes overall health and strives to keep patients out of the hospital and feeling their best.
