ANNIE APPLESEED PROJECT
June 21, 2010
The Annieappleseed Project has been a life-saver for me from the very beginning.
How refreshing it was for me to find this site, which offered me alternative and well thought-out points of view. I was starting to have a number of questions about the conventional one-size-fits-all treatments that I was offered at the beginning of my journey. Knowing Annieappleseed made all the difference for me.
Therefore, I was more than happy to accept, when Ann Fonfa asked me if I would be able to help her staff a stand at last year's Ovarian Cancer Conference in DC.
Though every cancer is a completely different disease, I learned a lot at that conference, from the other participants.
I feel it was very important for Ann and me to have been present there, to voice our point of view on nutrition and cancer, an aspect of cancer treatment that is all to often completely overlooked. Not that there is no interest in nutrition in the public, but patients are often too tired and too confused to think about looking in that direction, and finding out what they may need to change in their lifestyle to reduce their risk of recurrence.
The Annieappleseed project is doing a fantastic public service by providing information on nutritional issues and complementary natural therapies that may be available and could enhance their chances at recovering or avoiding recurrence.
