A Clearer Vision

Wow, the amount of progress for this fundraiser and also for the larger vision is amazing. We hear so much about so many terrible things and terrible people in the world. It's nice to write about great people, great things and HOPE!

So, this whole thing started off as a fundraiser to help someone with cancer. Well, when we dug into that, the feds were none to happy about donating money to an individual. How dare we do that!!!! We probably could do something the first year and be ok, but...

Cathy Wiedmer (TIPPY) found this interesting article on Fruit. I guess we all need to be a little more fruity!


FunnyFarm Cancer Fundraiser Dr Stephen Mak treats his terminal ill cancer patients by "un-orthodox" way and many patients recovered. He explains before he is using solar energy to clear the illnesses of his patients.. He believes on natural healing in the body against illnesses. See his article below:


This is one of the strategies to heal cancer. ...

Scientific or Holistic Treatment??

Posted by Anne Tarantino on March 6, 2010 at 9:09 AM Comments comments (2)

And what could possibly be the answer?


So, I got up this morning and decided that my coffee time was going to be devoted to doing some research on cancer and the environment so I could spread my plethora of knowledge amongst those who choose to listen. And of course, we involved with the Funny Farm are "Against Cancer and for the Environment" right?


I stumbled upon cancer treatments and the question came to me, "what kind of treatments would I choose if...

Ok as for Cancer!

This is my childhood friend Don Knaack writing about his battle with cancer. I'm very blessed to know this man.

Ok, as for the Cancer.

I had Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. For a couple years leading up to the diagnosis, I started getting red lumps on the back of my shoulder. They weren't big at first, and I thought they were just pockets of fat called granuloma's (or something like that anyway) - nothing to worry about. Well, they pro...

The Cancer Epidemic

Hi -



My name is Jenny, and I am one of the 'Kindergarten Girls', as Kay and Anne have so kindly labeled us! Anne and myself and two other very dear friends (Jill and Cathy) grew up together, and while I wasn't a TRUE kindergarten friend, since I didn't know those three crazies until middle school....we spent 6 years together in school, and have all remained close (Jill and I had some college years together, too), and in the past year have really reconnected and...

The Funny Farm Rocks

Posted by Kay Curtin on February 24, 2010 at 5:04 PM Comments comments (3)

Kay asked me to blog a bit about my exciting but not-so-fun Cancer Experience that I've been going through, and I'll happily do that.  Some of the best (and goofiest) times of my life have been spent with Kay and friends, but we don't get up to the Funny Farm often enough these days.  The June fundraiser is a wonderful thing to do and will be so appreciated by all recipients.  A group of my friends, co-workers, and former employers had a couple of great benefits for us last sum...

Let the fun begin

What is the funny farm and why are we doing this?


Good questions and there is a good long story to this. Sit back, get something to drink and enjoy the story.


The funny farm is the unofficial name of a farm in Harris, Minnesota owned by Kay Winchell. She and the funny farm are the 2 things that make this event so special. She would be less then pleased to be put in the spotlight of why this came about, but none of this would come to be if it weren’...
