ICAN in the News
ICAN CEO Marcia Horn has recently been appointed Chair of the Patient Engagement Community of the Drug Information Association (DIA). Read more in the April Issue of the DIA house publication Global Forum.
Dr. Robert A. Nagourney's most recent book, Outliving Cancer, has just been published, and ICAN is listed as one of 10 recommended advocates (and one of only 3 non-physicians). We are honored to be included in this important book.
Experienced, creative, and tenacious direct patient navigation and information services with the goal of extending life with the highest achievable quality of life.
Of the thousands of cancer patient advocacy organizations across the United States and across the globe, only one was profiled in Pharmaceutical Executive magazine's 30th Anniversary Edition on Patient Advocacy.
ICAN has received Top-Rated Health Care Nonprofit (2011 and 2012) and Top Rated Breast Cancer Organization (2012) from GreatNonprofits.org. After the debut of ICAN's e-newsletter, we received the coveted Constant Contact® All Star Award.
Since our founding, ICAN has been at the vanguard and in the trenches, serving cancer patients from 50 states and at last count 52 countries, 24/7/365.
ICAN has a small staff and over 1100 volunteers in 30 areas of ICAN, with our volunteer leadership representing 17 different time zones. We literally work around the clock focusing on our Personalized Medicine Cancer Case Navigation Programs, health information technology issues, and research initiatives. We aim to provide you with the best patient advocates and the most effective cancer patient advocacy in the business, and to extend your life with high quality of life.
ICAN advocates only for you--the patient--or for the patient's spouse or family member who wants to manage with us the details of their loved one's cancer case.
We are beholden to no one – no oncology practice, no medical center, no clinical trial, and no biotech or pharmaceutical company.
Your case is unique, and in our many years of nonstop advocacy services, we've never seen two patient cases remotely similar to the other.
Our experienced team empowers you to navigate rapidly expanding diagnostic and personalized treatment options. This information will assist you in informed discussions with family and providers. We never, ever compromise patient privacy (zealous implementers of HIPAA!), disclose your name or any identifying information, or exploit your case for fundraising purposes.
Operating with the highest standards of board governance, 94% of every contribution to our tax-exempt charitable organization is devoted to our Patient Program Services.
We are seeking your generous support and vote of confidence to expand our services and take ICAN to the next level of success. If you are interested in discussing how you could help us, with a generous contribution to help support an event or to name a cancer program in honor of or in memory of a loved one and/or if you wish to donate to ICAN your valuable volunteer time which we will use wisely, please call us at 602-618-0183 or email us at ExpandICAN@askican.org.
