Annie Appleseed Complementary Medicine Project

What began in 1993 as one woman’s quest to find information, answers and a cure to her breast cancer has evolved into the Annie Appleseed Project, a non-profit organization managing an international clearinghouse of information about CAM (Complementary and Alternative Medicine) treatments for disease. Project founder, Ann Fonfa, speaks internationally about her cancer journey and cure, and inspires thousands of others through her advocacy for making alternative medicine treatment options available to the public.

Back in 1993 before the Internet was available, access to non-conventional medical treatments was scarce. Ann was a pioneer at that time, reading every book and magazine about holistic health she could find, talking to alternative practitioners, and then sharing this information with other women. The more she learned, the more she refused chemo and radiation, and instead, overhauled her diet, used acupuncture and herbs and detoxification techniques.
