Annie Appleseed Project is providing excellent information and a really useful service to those with breast cancer.

When a colleague of mine shared her experience of having cancer, I immediately sent her Annie Appleseed's link. What Ann offers is a life-line to cancer survivors. This project is a confidence booster, and guaranteed to make anyone feel less isolated and/or depressed.

Fantastic conference. At Annie Appleseed conferences you will hear from experts and patients, enjoy the company of other survivers and thrivers and you will be well fed....I always have to mention this, as with many conferences, the food is awful and unhealthy. To attend a conference and learn about healthy eating, lifestyle and treatment choices and copious amounts of useful info and then eat garbage is somehow unsettling to me. Never the case with Ann's conferences...I am a survivor, the Executive Director for another NP, and a coach for others with cancer, and I wouldn't miss the Annie Appleseed conference!

Ann Fonfa and Annie Appleseed Project are a breath of fresh air in an otherwise frighting and confusing world that is known as traditional medicine. You getting well is the priority in Ann's world. The profit motivated traditional medicine world is not focused on getting people well. Ann's conferences are bar none, the BEST. You will learn HOW to get and stay well. She finds the best speakers and most informed experts in their fields and they present their information geared to the patient level. If you are attending her annual conference, not only will you be well fed, totally detoxed and cleansed, but you will meet the very nicest, relaxed happy people who have recovered and have found the path back to optimal health! Ann's organization is totally volunteer (I don't know how she does it) so please donate whatever you can.

The 4th Annual Evidence-Based Complementary & Alternative Cancer Therapies Conference organized by Annie Appleseed Project was one of the best organized and informative conferences I've ever attended. Speakers from all over the world presented and the information they imparted was eye-opening. While there's no magic bullet for cancer, as everyone responds differently to any given drug or approach, there are options out there, in combination and tailored to the individual, that are commonplace in Europe. Some of these approaches are available in a limited way in the U.S., some are not. If knowledge is power, I left the conference feeling more empowered. The conference is a testament to Annie Appleseed Project founder Ann Fonfa's dedication to providing people with cancer with the knowledge to make informed health care choices. Not only did I learn about cancer therapies and paradigms, I learned what I can do to be the healthiest me I can be.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I learned so much about what cancer therapies are available in other countries and about things I can do to be the healthiest me I can be.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wouldn't change anything. I wish I had the money to donate so that Annie Appleseed Project could reach more people.

I got breast cancer at 47 from working with radioactivity at work then getting injected estrogen as I was trying to conceive in my late 40s. After my second miscarriage, I found a lump. I let is sit for almost 2 years as I had lost my doctor as my fellowship ended, and was depressed after losing the baby. I had a late diagnosis. But I am still alive, I think, due to research and my diet. I use the computer to research. I have no access anymore to the scientific databases. I am completely isolated. If it were not for the AnnieAppleseed project I would not every have been exposed to all the new alternative research. It gave me hope. This was my first contact with excellent quality new alternative research which gave me a new goal and the methods to keep myself alive. I am still experimenting with what I learned at the conference and on the site last year and am looking forward to the next with all my heart. Thank you for being there.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them more money so they could help more people like me.

Annie Appleseed is one of the most informed and concise sources of information about CAM & cancer on the web. I always know that the information contained in their pages is correct and up to date, which is of utmost concern when culling information from the web.
The annual CAM conference is amazing with a wealth of information and speakers on a multitude of subjects. It's an absolute must for anyone who has had cancer or knows someone who has.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I attended the CAM conference several years ago and will be attending once again this year thanks to the generosity of Anne Fonfa and her wonderful organization.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not
