ANNIE APPLESEED PROJECT
July 15, 2009

I met Ann Fonfa at her organization's annual conference in Florida, 2 years after completing aggressive breast cancer treatment. As a cancer survivor and patient advocate, I was immediately inspired by her intelligence, fearlessness, and compassion. It was after the conference that two major htings occurred: I became an advocate myself, and, I found the circle of professionals and friends that I had been looking for in my quest to eliminate cancer from my life in ways that were healthy and sensitive to my personal needs. I have continued to eductae myself, and to share my information with those who desire a holistic approach to cancer treatment. Ann's emphasis on the basics; nutrition, exercise, mind-body therapies, and detoxification, offer cancer patients realistic, affordable, and approachable ways to address their post cancer lifestyles. Ann personally connects with her followers, has made herself an enviable presence at nearly every major medical and integrative conference in the US, and still finds the time to fundraise, sponsor, and inspire others to engage in education and advocacy. Her website is exhaustive and comprehensive. This is an organization that intelligently questions traditional therapy and offers education and support for those seeking alternatives.
