Kelly Turner, Ph.D. is a NY Times bestselling author, filmmaker, and actor.
Kelly Turner, PhD is the New York Times bestselling author of Radical Remission: Surviving Cancer Against All Odds, now in 22 languages, which summarizes her research into the radical remission of cancer – when someone heals from cancer in a statistically unlikely way without conventional medicine, or after conventional medicine has failed. Her highly anticipated follow-up book, Radical Hope: 10 Key Healing Factors from Exceptional Survivors of Cancer & Other Diseases, became an instant #1 Amazon bestseller.
Over the past decade, she has conducted research in 10 different countries and analyzed over 1,500 cases of radical remission. She is a frequent guest on The Dr. Oz Show and holds a B.A. from Harvard University and a Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley.
A trained screenwriter, Kelly has also adapted her bestselling book into a fictional, feature-length screenplay entitled OPEN-ENDED TICKET, which was a finalist for the 2019 Sundance Screenwriter’s Lab. This script tells the story of a cancer patient who takes her best friend on an around-the-world journey to try to find her estranged father before it’s too late. In their race against time, a string of unexpected events makes them question everything they thought they knew about life, death, and healing. Kelly is currently working with Hollywood producers to develop it into a TV series. Kelly is also a trained actor based in NYC, having appeared in numerous TV shows and films. She is currently slated to play the co-lead role of Kate in Open-Ended Ticket.
Kelly also created, produced, and directed a 10-part docuseries that explores the 10 healing factors from her research and which features many of the Radical Remission survivors from her books. This docuseries had a test screening in March 2020 and is currently in development with Wonderhood Studios out of the UK.
Finally, Kelly is also the founder of the Radical Remission Project, a website and online community that continues to collect new cases of Radical Remission and which offers online courses, in-person workshops, and one-on-one health coaching by 40+ Certified Radical Remission Health Coaches from around the globe.
