ANNIE APPLESEED PROJECT
June 17, 2010

In 2006 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I have always been a strong supporter of alternative medicine and although I allowed my doctors to talk me into a lumpectomy, I refused radiation and began a search for information on alternatives to radiation. I believe there is something in nature that will aid our healing process no matter what our disease. The Annie Appleseed website was a godsend. I found information and connections to other websites; everything I had been looking for was there for me. When they announced their first convention, I knew I had to go. I had been seeking information on iodine supplements and on the airport shuttle to the convention, I started talking with two ladies also headed there. One of the ladies began to share her story with me about losing one breast entirely then contracting cancer in the other breast. Rather than another mastectomy, she began iodine therapy which dissolved the tumors and restored her health...just the kind of information I was looking for. This month is four years since I had my lumpectomy...four years in which I have been able to enjoy good health without going through the misery of destroying healthy breast tissue on the outside chance they missed something during surgery. I feel extremely blessed to have knowledge and experience of the work being done by Ann Fonfa. This is a most deserving non-profit!

More feedback

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

their fantastic resource list with information about alternative treatments for cancer.

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

open and friendly, thoughtful, helpful and supportive.

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

raise awareness that our present medical industry does not have all the answers. Doctors are just practicing. There are alternatives to radiation and chemotherapy that need to be further explored and made available to the public.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
