Ann Fonfa "Annie Appleseed Project"
Ann Fonfa was diagnosed with breast cancer 19 years ago. Because of her severe allergic reactions to chemicals, she opted not to do chemo and radiation, but instead tried a variety of complementary therapies. Although she had several recurring tumors on her chest wall during the eight years she battled cancer from 1993-2001, she continued to use complementary therapies when complementary (then callled "alternative") therapy was not recognized by the medical community. Declared cancer-free in 2001, she wanted to share her findings with others. In 2003 she founded the Annie Appleseed Project, an organization that provides information on complementary, as well as traditional, therapies. Find out more about Ann and how you can attend a conference on complementary therapies in March with several experts in that field.
