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.

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

The Tampa-Bay community, for it willingness to help broden the experience and educational opportunities for volunteers. Referening them to the National Breast Cancer Coalition and the Florida Breast Caner Foundation for education awareness.

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

Provide more resources for them to do work when ever there was an opportunity.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

New and innovative information

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Friendly and informative

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Provide information to as many people as possible to help find a cure for Breast Cancer.

Ways to make it better...

none

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

The need of more volunteers

One thing I'd also say is that...

You can count on them!

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

my ongoing campaing to remain cancer-free and provide sources of information from other women. Ann linked me up with healing professionals and provided me with opportunities to become more of an activist (including financial scholarships to conferences.)

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

I keep learning and meeting great people

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

do 1000x morewonderful things

I was pleasantly surprised and encouraged by the presentation.I'm in the organic horticulture business and found virtually every speaker to be fair and thinking.I would not hesitate to attend another if given the opportunity.

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

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Professional and knowledgeable. Thank you.

Ways to make it better...

We did not sing row row row your boat. That kind of sillyness is what diminishes the balance of the other presentations.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

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.

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

the growth of numbers of people coming to the website and to the conferences that are now happening not only in Florida, but in New York as well.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

how down to earth people who are involved or who come to learn are.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

helpful, inspirational and well educated in their particular fields of research.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really make a major impact on educating people about all the alternative possibilities that are available to help people who are ill.
