In 1975, I was diagnosed with Malignant Cervical Cancer. I decided to create my own natural healing protocol, instead of a Hysterectomy and other invasive procedures. Within four months of Acupuncture, Herbs, Yoga, Hiking in the Andean mountains of Peru, and Meditation, I retested to find that the cancer was gone. I had a child two years later, who just made me a grandmother. When I met Ann Fonfa, we connected on a very deep level and I knew that I would be in the very best company for learning and teaching others about how to take charge of their own bodies. I have sent many people to her website and even given them her phone number. She is there, present, alive and completely approachable. I know that out health system is in need of great repair and The Annie Appleseed Project is a home for those who are broken and need hope to keep going. The Annie Appleseed program deserves to be supported in any way possible. God Bless Ann

The Annie Appleseed Project has been a godsent. For the past year I have experience a true found respect for Alternative Meds because of Appleseed Founder, Ann Fonfa. Her talents to enlighten people, breast cancer patients or not. Last year Ann Fonta attend the Sisters Network Tampa-Bay Gift for Life Block and was a true gift herself. There was a lady there that I know with BAD eating habit but with the information and insight from Ann I can truly say there is more green foods in her diet today. The Annie Appleseed project is a wonderful program that reaches where theres a need and to whom ever that calls.

Ann Fonfa and her organization, annieappleseedproject.org, have been a source of strength and information to me since I was diagnosed with breast cancer last year. Not only has her website been a vast source of information and contacts concerning complementary and alternative therapies, as was her second annual convention which I attended this January for the first time, but Ann heself is a constant source of kindness, passion, patience and information. I just came back from attending the NBCC conference in Washington DC and was amazed to see how many people consider her a close friend. She is dedicated to winning the fight against breast cancer for all women and walks her talk. I always give out her cards and recommend her highly.

I am a holistic practitioner, specializing in Detoxification programs using juice fasting and raw foods, yoga, relaxation, meditation and advanced massage therapy. I came to all of these modalities because I had cancer in 1975. I wanted to see if I could heal it without any invasive therapies. I succeeded and became very dedicated to teaching others how to prevent and even heal their own dis-eases. Ann Fonfa, the Director and Founder of The Annie Appleseed Project, gave me an opportunity to present my story at the first conference in January, 2008 as a patient advocate. I have been a volunteer for the organization which is helping people to have their questions answered. Come join us on January 7-9, 2010 in West Palm Beach, FL.
