Mission:
ICAN provides Personalized Medicine Cancer Case Management Programs, through its customized patient advocacy services to Stage IV patients who have been written off by their oncology teams. The organization specializes in complex and rare diagnoses, whether pediatric or adult cancers.

ICAN, given years of experience with oncology issues and the anticancer drug pipeline, assists patients in the battle to extend life with high quality of life through
physician referrals, cutting-edge information and advocacy services, clinical trials research, compassionate use analysis, and palliative care program services.
Results:
When you are dealing with individual cancer patients and their specific cases, the metrics are extending time to progression and working toward disease-free survival. The question becomes "compared to what?" since no cancer patient is like any other cancer patient. The one metric that counts at ICAN is an overwhelming number of our patients, given the countless accolades we have received over the past 15 years, testify to ICAN's pivotal assistance in making a critical difference in life prolongation and quality of life issues.
