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.

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

Seeing people's lives changed.

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.

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

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

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

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.

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

Recommend Annie Apple Seed be awarded perpetual grants to extend their vision of wellness!

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

It is wonderful organization that could greatly benefit from increased funding so that the Annie Appleseed Project can reach more people with it's message.

I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer in September 2009. I knew almost nothing about it and was referred to Annieappleseed.com through a friend of mine. Although I had been told all about conventional treatments, the alternative treatment information on the site was expansive. I was so interested that I attended their 2010 Conference for Alternative Treatment in West Palm Beach. There I was able to see firsthand what alternative treatments and nutrition therapies are out there. I sat in on informative lectures by phyicians and professionals, and was able to meet a number of community leaders and survivors who encouraged me in many ways. Since that conference I have attended two additional events courtesy of Annieapppleseed project. Both were very informative and enlightening to me.

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

my education of alternative treatments of cancer, my education and awareness of good nutrition, the importance of organic produce, the danger of chemicals in everyday use and having access to newly released medical studies and/or other news.

after my breast cancer diagnosis, Annie helped me sort out the possible treatment options with insights and impressive awareness. During and after treatment, the website gave me information about everything I was curious about, from mushroom supplements to strange radiation side effects. I couldn't find this level of authoritative, wide-ranging information anywhere else, and Annie is a goldmine of information and caring.

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

many ways that have been extremely helpful to me, both medically and emotionally.

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

the incredible range of information, on some hard-to-find topics I couldn't explore anywhere else

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

Annie is incredibly accessible, caring and knowledgable

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

hire more staff and spread the word to so many other people who could benefit from all the information they gather and share

Aftering talking to Annie, I realized that her organization was a worth while project and that many people needed to hear more about it. I asked her to send me flyers on her project and she did. Now a community that has little or no access to computers, know her information.

I have read and I like her information.

The heartfelt concern for cancer patients.

Their commitment to provide health information.
