ICAN 's willingness and ability to assist cancer patients who are in dire situations is absolutely amazing. Marcia Horn , the head of ICAN, has provided extensive support to two of my dear friends, one of whom has mutiple myeloma, and another with head and neck cancer. In both cases, she has used her research expertise and vast knowledge of medical facilities and physicians who are top-notch innovators in their fields to provide my friends with detailed, relevant, and urgently needed information on seeking the best treatment for their cancer. In addition, she has been an advocate when they needed an assertive, knowlegable ally in order to receive prompt, appropriate care. Marcia Horn and ICAN are priceless! They have prolonged the lives of these patients while allowing them to maintain a quality of life that has permitted each of them to achieve a few more of their life goals and fulfill dreams they had believed were impossible after the diagnosis of cancer.

I am absolutely amazed with Marcia Horn and ICAN. My husband is in a late stage of Melanoma skin cancer and is currently going through treatment. We could not have felt more comfortable with the treatment options given to us if it wasn't for Marcia and her team. She is so quick to respond to questions and concerns we have and immediately makes us feel more comfortable about navigating through this deadly disease. I highly recommend ICAN to all cancer patients.

Five years ago I was diagnosed with breast cancer and as often occurs encountered a number of difficulties. I was not sure what direction to take but knew it is important to learn and take initiative as said in Sun Tzu.
"In difficult ground, press on.
In encircled ground, devise
stratagems.
In death ground, fight."

I am happy to say that with ICAN, an amazing organization, and with the great resources and assistance from Marcia Horn, the cancer has not returned! Marcia Horn was my expert in defining an amazing oncologist and other areas of direction. I offer my appreciation to her and ICAN and hope that we will never lose their support and direction.

Dear all, I have contacted ICAN and Marcia Horn a few months ago when we found that my mother has lung cancer. The next day Marcia wrote me an email with many usefull information I could use about the treatment options, analysis, doctors etc. Ever since, I know I can contact Marcia and Ican for any questions I might have and receive a few hours later the answers I needed. Their activity is really amazing and a real help for us.
Thank you so much for everything you do for the patients and their family!

My husband Don was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer when he went in for hip replacement. It was devastating news. Then we heard about ICAN and connected with Marcia Horn. She helped us navigate the reports, kept us apprised of new developments, held our hands and acted as our cheer leader at all times of the day and night. Eighteen months later Don is still going strong and ICAN's positive "you can do it" attitude has made all the difference in this fight.

Try to get the word out to more people and especially professionals in the field of oncology. ICAN is not in competition with the health care providers. It is a support for them also.

I was at work when I got the news - my breast cancer had returned to my spine and I was now Stage IV. The Doctors did not give much hope and told me only 16% survive past five years. My girlfriend volunteered at a Jewel of the Ball fundraising event ICAN was holding in 2006 and she decided to volunteer. Little did she know it would change my life.
ICAN called me the very next day at work and reassured me we were going to fight this and it was not gloom and doom. They immediately went into action and referred me to a doctor who helped save my life. I am now in remission over six years and although they won/'t use the word cure, I know I wouldn't be here today if it wasn't for this organization. They truly are the remission coaches of the cancer world and have my support and trust forever.

I reached out to ICAN earlier this year when my father was diagnosed with Stage IV Melanoma. Since we were new to the cancer world, we didn't have much knowledge about the cancer or what all of the treatment options out there meant to us. It was so very scary to us and how could we trust 1 doctor to make the right decisions for my father. I explained all the options we had in front of us to Marcia Horn and she right away eased all of our concerns and worries. We felt good about choosing a treatment plan appropriate for my father after speaking with her. She is extremely knowledgable and was able to provide so much information to us about the drugs, their side effects and effectiveness. She is truly dedicated and always has you in the back of her mind.

Hi I'm Jay C. 38 years old from Cavite, Philippines and I'm one of the lucky cancer (testicular cancer) patient who was readily been assisted by Ms. Marcia Horn. She is a jewel for us who has cancer. She helps us in all the steps to undertake to make us prepared for the challenges ahead. She also makes good advises and serves as my 2nd opinion that guides me well in my cancer treatment. I couldn't thank you more and we are lucky to have and know you.

Keep up the good work and God bless you always. More power!
