Bernie retired from general and pediatric surgical practice in 1989, and has since dedicated himself to humanizing the  medicalestablishment's approach to patients, and to empowering patients to induce their own healing. After studying the use of crayon drawings by patients faceing life-threatening diseases, Bernie founded Exceptional Cancer Patients to facilitate self-induced healings. Bernie realized that we can aid our bodies' innate propensity to heal through what are currently seen as uncoventional practices, including drawing, visualization, dreams, love, and laughter.
