Welcome to the Annie Appleseed Project! There are so many simple steps that can be taken to increase your chances of surviving and beating cancer. We want to help you make more informed treatment decisions. Read More
Who created this website? A woman with breast cancer and an attitude.
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.
About 90,000 visitors see our site monthly, and thousands have heard Ann Fonfa, and other of our volunteer advocates speak at various meetings around the world.
Other people with cancer (all volunteers) 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. Things have improved over the years since we began this work, but it still comes down to each individual with her or his medical team. And insurance does not yet cover CAM.

Some of the articles on this site, in particular the meeting summaries, are written by a variety of volunteers. This is clearly stated and all opinions expressed on those pages are from the authors alone.
