Annie Appleseed

Patient Leader

Diagnosed with breast cancer in Jan 1993, suffering from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity. Chose no chemotherapy, no radiation. Had to find what I could do. The world of Natural medicine beckoned and I began researching. I discovered so much information I founded a study group, a nonprofit and put up a website I now attend medical meetings to talk about it, learn about therapies and share information on Facebook, Twitter and an e-newsletter. I work with other Advocates and feel really lucky to be part of an amazing world of women and men who really care about helping others. My nonprofit Annie Appleseed Project hosts educational cancer conferences.

Advocating For Another

Just about every day of the year this organization posts health information. Their focus is on Natural cancer strategies and that's about 2/3 of the information placed daily on the Facebook page.  — Ann

Ann is someone who reaches out and has a way of making everyone feel welcome. She is someone who helps everyone. I mean everyone - patients, caregivers, families, nurses, doctors, researchers, non profits, companies! She has devoted her whole life and all her money and time to educating people on using integrative medicine.  — Sangeeta

For her amazing work and dedication on Cancer alternatives education and advocacy.  — Joe

Ann Fonfa has advocated for me during my breast cancer and mastectomy.. She has helped so many people I know who are dealing with cancer..Many of the people were given no hope for survival and are alive because of Ann Fonfa! My cancer was stage 3 and phase 3., I am a young single mother and Ann was a life saver.  — Lorianne
