Review for ANNIE APPLESEED PROJECT, Delray Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am in awe of what Ann Fonfa has done to bring complementary and alternative treatments for cancer into the public eye and what she has done to support cancer patients and their families. She is tireless in putting her vision into action and she has paved the way for many to make choices they might not otherwise have known were available, through her comprehensive website and through personal interactions. She also holds a torch for truth and balance by seeking out and drawing attention to new research that may challenge prevailing mainstream perspectives or assumptions about treatment. The beneficial repercussions of her work travel far through her website, and through regional as well as national conferences.

Review for ANNIE APPLESEED PROJECT, Delray Beach, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I participated in the 2008 Annie Appleseed Conference and was impressed, both by the level and array of speakers Ann Fonfa had gathered to present information that is not always readily available through mainstream medicine. The popularity of the conference was such that I’m sure a larger venue will be necessary for patients and practitioners hungry for reliable, intelligent presentations. There was a great sense of cooperation and Ann Fonfa took great care to see that the food available at the conference was in tune with the theme (i.e.- delicious organic, healthy meals and snacks). Ann does not pay lip service to health. She acts on her beliefs and knowledge at every level. I am a cancer survivor, health care professional and author. Ann Fonfa was extremely supportive so that I could make my book "After Shock: From Cancer Diagnosis to Healing – A step-by-step guide to help you navigate your way", available to participants. Her staff was also very helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend this conference to professional and patient alike.

Ways to make it better...

there was more space in the lecture rooms.
