This organization provides one of the better and more complete collections of information on cancer treatment alternatives. Cancer patients have to understand that current cancer practices in the US are far more driven and dominated by medical dogma* and business preferences than they are by therapeutic efficacy and science. Other credible sources of information are needed. The information provided by the Annie Appleseed Project can help to overcome the restricted views that conventional medicine often imposes on cancer patients and their loved ones.
*Dogma: A belief or point-of-view, presented as authoritative, that is not scientifically proven.

The Great!

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

I design and develop therapeutic devices that have been proven to be useful in the treatment of cancer and in wound healing.

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

The kind of changes that would be the "next step" require more staff and a much higher level of funding. The Annie Appleseed Project does well with what they have.

As a "cancer guide" providing important cutting edge, integrative, complementary and alternative cancer treatment information to those seeking a beacon in the storm of cancer (at CANHELP, www.canhelp.com), I feel that Annie Appleseed Project's website and annual conferences have provided trustworthy, evidence-based treatment information that keeps me informed and better able to help my clients. Ann Fonfa's and her volunteers' drive and passion, combined with a high level of integrity (run on a "shoestring!"), make this organization a unique place for survivors and professionals to learn essential information in the fight against cancer.

As a licensed preventive specialist I felt compelled to attend the Annie Apple Seed conference for our patients. Practicing in a biocomaptible dental practice and having family and patients diganosed with cancer, too bereft to navigate alternative pathways, the conference had magnetic forces to attend! The fees to attend extremely reasonable, the food so refreshingly healthy and the information PRICELESS! I have passed on infinite "pearls" of information to patients over the past year who are so grateful for an outlet to turn for guideance. I truly believe Ann F. is guided by the angels providing lifesaving pathways through Annie Apple Seed. Whether diagnosed with cancer or not, this conference offers ample knowledgeable presenations to make simple huge life wellness choices. Annie Apple Seed assists everyone to become focused on priorities paramount to wellness of heart, mind and body! Annie Apple Seed Conference: Angels on earth! Without question a must consideration for grants for life! MLM-R, RDH, BS

When passing information to others about Annie Apple Seed I see a total transformation often in a few short minutes. HOPE comes alive in their eyes and their faces . Patients, concerned family members become empowered to make choices in their journey. You see the look of fear challenged and replaced by strength. I am always humbled by their experience.

Without even having a personal experience with cancer, I immediately knew The Annie Appleseed Project was an organization I wanted to be involved with. It encourages everyone to adopt simple habits that will help improve their health and wellness. For those with cancer, the information The Annie Appleseed Project provides can make a huge difference in decisions they might make about their treatment. Anyone who has met Ann can tell how dedicated and passionate she is about reaching those who need it most.

The Great!

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

This organization encouraged me to live a more healthy and balanced life in hopes to decrease my risk of diseases such as cancer. I've sent the website to all of my friends and family to help spread the message and hopefully reach more people looking for options during cancer treatment.

find a way to make sure it could reach all audiences with a need for information about complementary and alternative therapies. The demand for conferences and seminars nationwide far exceeds the budget The Annie Appleseed Project has to work with.

Ann Fonfa has done so much to help others who have cancer. She is truly a visionary and through her experience of fighting and beating cancer with alternative therapies she has inspired others to follow her path. She spoke at our Head and Neck Cancer Seminar in Palm Beach County, Florida this past December and we have had overwhelming positive responses to her lecture.
Ann has a gentle and caring spirit about her. She personally responded to all e-mails and was offering help to us from the moment I contacted her. Her organization went up and above in donating time, supplies and a wealth of knowledge in making our seminar successful. She is extremely knowledgeable in nutrition and CAM therapies. I don’t believe anyone walked away from her lecture without taking something new and valuable from it. Her information serves not only those who have/had cancer but everyone in the room. She addressed several ways of prevention for those who have never had cancer.
I would like to see her organization win this award. I am sure that she would use the money to further educate those with cancer along with those in remission on nutritional and educational breakthroughs.

Ann Fonfa is a visionary and pioneer in the field of complementary and alternative cancer therapies. As a survivor to whom chemotherapy was NOT an option she has been advocating for decades lifestyle changes, such as: nutrition and organic eating, exercise, relaxation, aroma therapy, reiki, and yoga. Her CAM seminars offer cancer patients and survivors practical and understandable ways to enhance their quality of life as well as their immune systems. Even though operating on a shoe-string budget she always manages to book innovative and thought-provoking speakers. She is sincere in her beliefs and dedicated to helping people discover
new ways of surviving and thriving! She walks the walk - having attended cancer seminars with her where copious amounts of unhealthy free food are offered she always brings her own organic meals. Her kindness, gentle approach and generosity of spirit in sharing her knowledge and insight is a blessing to all of us who know her and who have benefited from her endeavors. E. Smith

I refer people to this non profit all the time. It is one of the greatest sources of information, accurate information about integrative and alternative therapies for cancer patients. Ann keeps up to date on the most current information, she is a tireless advocate for patients and a voice of reason in a crazy system of disease.

I have known Ann for many years and applaud her work with Annie Appleseed. She provides information that is of tremendous help and hope for breast cancer patients. Additionally, the information Ann disseminates is valuable to those who have not had cancer. Prevention by using products that are healthy rather than harmful is a service to the general public as well as to cancer survivors.

Ann Fonfa is a hero for every woman with Breast Cancer. She has dedicated her life to collecting and disseminating information about legitimate alternative therapies and integrative treatment for Breast Cancer. Every year she puts together an affordable conference (with great food!) featuring the doctors and practitioners who are leading the way in effective and health-restoring Breast Cancer treatment. Bravo to Ann!
