Who created this website?
A woman with breast cancer
and an attitude.
Although this Project began as Ann Fonfa's personal answers to questions on natural(CAM) therapies, it has become a nationally recognized organization, and is now a non profit corporation in the state of Florida. (May 23, 2003)and tax exempt, 501 (c)3 as of August, 2003. We are located at 7319 Serrano Terrace, Delray Beach, FL 33446-2215.

From its inception the Annie Appleseed Project decided to Challenge the Existing treatment paradigm, to Question the existing research methods and subjects, and to Propose new directions for both ending with true Integrative Oncology. Thus the program name Cheqpt, designed to bring complementary, alternative therapies to the mainstream as soon as may be, while serving as a place where all ideas are scrutinized.
Almost two million people have visited this site in the last twelve months, and thousands have heard Ann Fonfa speak at various meetings. For what it's worth, this site is ranked 94,719 according to Rank.com
Other people with cancer have gotten involved and produced reports on treatment responses, clinic visits, meetings attended and much more. We now offer financial support to advocates who attend meetings, write reports, hand out our brochures, etc. We need your support to continue to represent the people who use complementary or alternative cancer therapies.
During Fiscal 2007 which ends on June 30, 2008, we hosted our first national conference "Evidence-based Complementary and Alternative Cancer Therapies". It was very expensive, but totally worth it, since we offered scholarships to all who needed them, and served organic food! And in 2009, our 2nd Annual meeting March 3-5, 2011 is our 4th. Most of the contributions we receive (63%) are $100 or less. Any and all amounts are appreciated.
December 2011 We are in the process of uploading 2010 990-EZ filings(a paid accountant prepared these forms). This will open to a new page.
The mission of The Annie Appleseed Project is to provide information, education, advocacy and awareness for people with cancer about natural therapies/substances, lifestyle issues, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), and other issues from the patient perspective.
