Empowerment Starts Now
Calling all women, teens and up! Join us for our Virtual Summit (available at any time) or for our in-person Cancer-Kicking! Summit on October 15 & 16 at the breathtaking Terranea Resort in Southern California.
World-renowned breast cancer surgeon and bestselling author Dr. Kristi Funk will rock your weekend with information that is sure to change your life. This high-energy gathering promises to inform and empower women of all ages who care about living their healthiest lives and want to maximally reduce their chances of disease. Whether you are one of the 45% of Americans living with a chronic disease or you simply want to take the first step to truly elevate your health, this summit summons you!
Arm yourself with scientifically-backed facts and the tools you need to kick cancer as far from you as possible, while also radically reducing the risk of other chronic illnesses, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, obesity, depression, arthritis, asthma, autoimmune disease and more. Learn to intelligently navigate the conflicts and contradictions that compete for your attention everywhere you look. Let Dr. Funk share her 25 years of medical wisdom as she provides a clear and actionable roadmap for healthy living and wellbeing.
Evidence-based and backed by rigorous research, Dr. Funk’s approachable and often hilarious speaking style distills scientific wisdom into simple, actionable, take-it-home and start-right-now power. This is NOT a boring medical conference with monotonous research reports and studies – quite the contrary. Dr. Funk’s degree in psychology and TV celebrity background amp the entertainment value above and beyond any mundane medical discourse. Prepare yourself for an action-packed virtual or in-person experience that will unshackle you from mental chains, energize you with achievable goals, and empower you with lasting friends.
How did it all start? Dr. Funk explains how the idea of the Cancer-Kicking! Summit came to be on Hallmark Channel’s Home & Family.

During our 2021 Summit, we received many requests to add additional activities and workshops with topics of interest. We thought about it, and agree! For our 2022 Summit, two additional activities and 3 workshops will be added. One of the workshops will focus on Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT), while another one will focus on Weight Loss. Once the third workshop is confirmed, it will be posted here. Workshops will be limited to a smaller group of attendees. We will announce the maximum size per group shortly.
Dr. Kristi Funk is a board-certified breast cancer surgeon, bestselling author and international presenter. With over 25 years of medical experience, she is an expert in minimally invasive diagnostic and treatment methods for all types of breast disease and has helped thousands of women through breast treatment, including well-known celebrities, like Angelina Jolie and Sheryl Crow, who have turned to her for her surgical expertise.
Dr. Funk authored the bestseller, Breasts: The Owner’s Manual, and after a deep dive into nutritional science literature (that originally lasted a year and has yet to stop), she uncovered an abundance of evidence-based research that dramatically shifted her perspective from a predominantly surgical focus while treating disease, to one that individualizes care and empowers millions of women all over the world to dramatically reduce their risk of cancer and many of life’s major killers. Dr. Funk has merged her medical knowledge and background in psychology with her own life experiences and those of her 20,000+ patients to create the life-empowering Cancer-Kicking! program that teaches women (and men) how to maximally reduce the chances of facing a killer disease.
After graduating in Psychology with distinction from Stanford University in 1991, Dr. Funk received her medical degree from the UC Davis, School of Medicine. She completed her surgical residency in Seattle, WA, followed by a surgical breast fellowship at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where she then excelled as a surgeon and Director of their Breast Center until 2009. That year, Dr. Funk, alongside her entrepreneurial husband, opened the Pink Lotus Breast Center in Beverly Hills, which became the first center of its kind in the United States, fusing state-of-the art screening, genetic testing, diagnosis and treatment with preventive strategies and holistic, compassionate care – all under one roof.
A sought after speaker and TV personality, Dr. Funk is the go-to breast expert for Good Morning America and The Doctors, and has appeared on Today, The Dr. Oz Show, CNN, Rachael Ray, The View, and more, as well as countless radio and podcast interviews. Dr. Funk has received dozens of honors and awards and uses her appearances to educate and give back to the community. She resides in Pacific Palisades, CA, with her husband and triplet sons.

Community is a powerful tool that supports and elevates your health. We purposefully built making friends and meeting like-minded individuals into our Summit as a “key ingredient” for success. And of course – improving your health and wellness feels more natural when you are already surrounded by pure beauty. This is why we host the annual Cancer-Kicking! Summit every October at the luxurious, relaxing and incredibly scenic 5-star Terranea Resort (terra-NAY-a).
Located just along the Pacific Ocean on the beautiful Palos Verdes Peninsula in Southern California, this hidden gem on the Los Angeles coast is a 102-acre luxury resort destination surrounded by tranquil waves and offers a whole new world of relaxation and adventure that words just can’t describe.

While we encourage all event participants to stay on site in order to get the most out of the event, attendees are not required to stay at Terranea Resort.
Saturday night only, Fri/Sat night and Thu/Fri/Sat night room rates are available for purchase and included in our available ticket registration options below. If you opt to stay at Terranea, you can choose between a King bed or two Queen beds during checkout. If you plan on bringing family to the event, we can offer you the same discounted rate via special order so that you can purchase additional guest rooms at the resort.
If you prefer not to stay at Terranea Resort, there are several options available within a 20 minute drive from the event, including up-scale options like the Portofino Hotel & Marina and budget friendly options like the Ramada by Wyndham Torrance, Best Western Plus Redondo Beach Inn, Days Inn by Wyndham Torrance Redondo Beach and Redondo Inn and Suites.
Terranea Resort is located in beautiful Southern California on the Palos Verdes peninsula. You will feel like the city is lightyears away, yet Los Angeles and Orange County are just a short drive away. The 405, Long Beach and Harbor freeways all get you within a 20-30 minute drive of the resort.
Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) and the Long Beach Airport (LBG) provide the shortest distance to Terranea Resort. John Wayne Airport in Orange County and Burbank Airport in the San Fernando Valley provide alternatives but require a longer drive to the resort.
