(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.
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.
