I loved be around like-minded folks looking to live a healthier life, looking for a more gentle way to treat their body while living with cancer. I especially liked learning about new protocols that are available. My one problem is my limited income, as I'm living on a disability income and couldn't buy all the wonderful items brought to my attention by the vendors. Luckily for me, I did receive a scholarship to attend and had family financial help in getting to Florida for this conference.

Thank you to all donors who made my scholarship possible!

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 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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

finding products that are helpful in purchasing food and skin lotions, shampoos and the like.

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

I wouldn't do a thing to change it!
