My daughter introduced me to Jaye Seidlin a few days after my CT scan and biopsy done in Florida confirmed I had Stage 2B pancreatic cancer. My family and I became determined to learn about the disease and to find the best medical treatments available. Jaye proved to be the answer to our prayers. She immediately arranged to have my scans reviewed by a surgical oncologist and within a day I received a call from this doctor who carefully explained next steps for treatment. With Jaye at our side over the past 42 months we navigated a very complicated course of therapies involving the three major cancer centers in Florida, New York, and Pennsylvania which provided surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, genetic testing, and participation in a life-saving clinical trial. Jaye was always compassionate, professional, and encouraging. She insisted we team up with the best specialists, helped us arrange appointments, and even came with us at times. You don’t get second chances with a lethal disease such as pancreatic cancer so do it right the first time by finding an advocate like Jaye Seidlin to coach you, advise you, and encourage you on how to take care of yourself.

I have known Jaye for years. We became friends in high school and stayed in touch throughout the years. She has helped countless people by advocating for them when they received cancer diagnoses, including some of my very good friends. When my husband was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer at age 44, I knew that I wanted him to have to the best care possible. I immediately called Jaye, and she sprang into action and told me exactly what I needed to do. Before I could gather my thoughts and my husband’s records, she already was on the phone securing us appointments with world renowned top doctors. We flew to NY from Florida, and were sitting in their offices. Jaye surprised us and sat in the waiting room next to us for hours before his first appointment, doing her best to allay our anxiety and answer questions. It was decided that he would have his chemotherapy treatment in Miami with an oncologist trained by the best and we would return to NY for the surgery.
Flash forward 6 months, and COVID-19 hit. The uncertainty of where the surgery would happen was extremely stressful and unsettling. Jaye’s support was crucial. We knew going to a world renowned cancer hospital was the best choice because the surgeons there are the top in the world and invented the procedures my husband would be having. Luckily the numbers in NY started to decrease and it was safe for us to go. He had his surgeries and is doing amazing. We could not have managed any of this without Jaye’s support. She is an incredible person who has found her purpose in life, and we will forever be grateful.

Our family has had the greatest of privilege by knowing Jaye for many years. When our family knew the darkest of days faced with both childhood cancer and young adult cancers we needed guidance immediately to help make sense of the new world we had to now enter. Unfortunately cancer does not come with its instructions and facing the way forward was terrifying. The proper guidance and support are critical at this time and finding the right health advocate can make all of the difference in the care from the first step forward. Cancer quickly causes a life shift not only for the patient but the entire family as well and having Jaye in our lives shifted the imbalance back to stability.
Jaye is armed with the professionalism, knowledge and unending devotion that paves the way towards attaining the right care at the right place. Her clients become her family and she works tirelessly day and night to make sure every aspect of care including securing appointments and recommendations of hospitals are done in tip top fashion. Jaye's emotional support of everyone involved makes her a uniquely special advocate. How fortunate and blessed we are to have Jaye navigate this journey for us. We could never imagine it without her.

When I was blindsided by a breast cancer diagnosis, Jaye was the only person other than my husband whom I turned to in confidence for help. Although we had been long-time friends, we were not particularly close; however, I felt especially comfortable confiding in Jaye because of her trustworthiness, compassion, empathy, and devotion to advocating for cancer patients. I was confident that she would steer me in the right direction because of her exceptionally high standards and her strong personal network of qualified surgeons and oncologists. Let me be clear-I am not easy to impress, especially when my health depends on it. I am quite careful about whom I am vulnerable with. Jaye did not disappoint. We came up with a strategy for getting multiple qualified opinions together and ultimately, I went with the team Jaye recommended. With deep gratitude, I could not be happier with the result. Jaye guided me to the right doctors and through a lot of anxiety. Jaye uses her special mix of talents to fulfill this calling, and it was reassuring to know she was in my corner during an incredibly stressful time. We will forever share a bond. Thank you, Jaye!

It is my great privilege to write this letter on behalf of Jaye Seidlin whose dedicated advocacy made all the difference in my 24-year-old son’s journey through two concurrent, unrelated cancer diagnoses. We were extremely fortunate to have been introduced to her to help us identify specific doctors and surgeons to confer with and discuss treatment options.
Navigating the complex, myriad landscape of cancer is a daunting task, but having Jaye as a focused and educated guide provided us with the assurance and security we needed during this difficult period. Her professional background and knowledge of my son’s diseases and the doctors and surgeons best suited for his care removed all the stress surrounding his treatments. Jaye helped arrange appointments, aided in the transferring of records and pathology from different institutions, and proactively followed up on the next steps in his care. She went above and beyond.
Jaye is truly vested as an advocate. She not only tends to her patient’s physical care but extends herself deeply into the family’s emotional well-being. In our most challenging times and fragile moments, her daily calls were so needed and reassuring-- having her as a support system is a true gift. The safety we feel under Jaye’s guidance is inexplicable and I do believe her profound dedication and love driving her advocacy can surely save lives.
As we continue my son’s fight with his testicular and thyroid cancer, we take great comfort in knowing Jaye will be our advocate. We are so very fortunate to have met her and cannot possibly imagine walking this walk without having her by us every step of the way.

Jaye, all we know is that without you we would still feel as though we were just drifting all alone, searching for doctors that could help us. After years of seeing many different doctors, with no results, we have been feeling so discouraged and so frustrated.
That all changed the day we met you.
With you as our "Health Advocate" we have made such amazing progress on our journey. For the first time ever, we are feeling HOPEFUL.
Because of your knowledge, guidance, and understanding we are getting further and further to our goal. Words cannot express the thankfulness that we feel for you. You are the most amazing, giving person. We are forever grateful to you!

When I reached out to Jaye, I had hit the “hopeless” point with my weight. I was almost 70 pounds overweight and had tried everything from Weight Watchers to multiple apps to fad diets (e.g., juicing, fasting days). Even exercising 6 days a week didn’t help. At that point, I started to have medical issues that continued to get worse and I didn’t know where to turn. When I heard about Jaye and saw all the success she had, I figured I would give it a shot. To say she is a miracle worker would be an understatement! After almost 7 months, I am down 70 pounds, my medications have been cut in half and my doctor said my medical issues are “healing.” Jaye not only made it easy, but she made me successful. Jaye is caring accessible, and extremely knowledgeable. She changed my relationship with food and did so in a way that is a sustainable life change for me. I travel a lot for work and often don’t have time to sit down for long meals, but Jaye’s program taught me how think differently so I don’t have to worry. This was never a diet-it was always about what I could eat vs. what I had to cut out. No one was more skeptical than me, and this worked when everything else failed. My results were life-changing- everyone should call Jaye!
-Rebecca, Corporate Executive at Fortune 500 Company
I was skeptical at first that Jaye’s program would work. I had tried different programs and diets with not much success. However, I took a leap of faith and I am so glad I did. I have lost 30 pounds and counting and haven’t felt this good in years. I had almost forgotten what it was like to feel ”healthy!” Jaye was knowledgeable about my condition (Hashimoto’s/hypothyroidism) and helped me get to a doctor to address health concerns and put a wellness plan in place to achieve healthy weight loss but also to increase energy and overall feeling of wellness. She was super responsive and has a great attitude that is infectious.
I needed the extra boost her weekly sessions gave me to vent, keep me in check and also motivated! But at the same time she encouraged me to allow myself to be human! I think in part that is why this has been a sustainable lifestyle change for me. She also understood the premium I put on my time as a busy lawyer and mother of two and helped me find ways to address that so it wasn’t a barrier to meeting my goals. If you are on the fence like I was, take the leap of faith! There is no better investment you can make than your health, for your sake but also for those you love.

Thanks to your intuitive manner, extensive knowledge and tireless devotion to finding solutions for your clients, you have helped me reverse an extremely frustrating and challenging health situation that has plagued me for many years now. I was already well versed on healthy eating, but learned from you some very precious information, which we learned about only after you suggested I see your recommended choices of physicians in the US, despite my initial hesitance, being that I live in France. As you helped me to discover how to make better choices, based on trial & error and what felt « right » for me, coupled with the tricks and tips you offered to guide me along the process, I began to see results quickly, and have continued to see positive progress - slowly and surely over several months, which reassures me the weight loss and overall healthier state-of-affairs will be sustainable. Keep on doing what you are doing, as your efforts to make the world a brighter place for your clients is clearly working, and I am living proof.

I took a two-week course from Jaye to realign my eating and my thinking about food. Because I didn't consume that much in calories, I was always hungry, and made up for it by eating snacks between meals that I thought were healthy but were actually very high in sugar.
Almost immediately, after I began the program I felt satiated and stopped noshing between meals, except for the allowed snacks. I shed the five pounds that I had been trying to lose, without success, for so long, despite working out five days a week.
Jaye is always available to answer questions, and she approaches the subject with passion and commitment. Hers is a holistic approach that also incorporates soul elements and the search for meaning in life. I highly recommend Jaye's program.
– Robin, Editor National Magazine
Thanks so much for your guidance and recommendations for better nutrition and a healthier diet. During the 4 week program, I ate as much as I wanted, was never hungry, and lost about 5 lbs. to reach my goal of about 159 lbs. I have reduced carbs and increased protein, but still get to eat a modest amount of my favorite deserts. After the past 2 weeks in Paris, eating to my heart’s content, I still managed to lose a half of a pound. Your responsiveness to emails and texts has made this coaching experience a pleasure, I hope we will continue to stay in touch and I wish you much success in spreading your message.
