ICAN, International Cancer Advocacy Network
July 15, 2011

I am a member of the public and a sometime volunteer.
I was first introduced to ICAN through their musical events at which the great pianist, Ronald Jacobowitz, entranced and educated the audience. He not only played beautiful classical piano music but gave us background information on the composers their times and the musical developments i.e. early to late Beethoven. Through the people I met at these musical events I learned about the important and wonderful work ICAN is doing.
I have been able to give ICAN and Marcia Horn- ICAN's CEO- contacts to people in Phoenix and elsewhere in the world who have had need of a cancer advocate. They have all reported to me how helpful Marcia Horn has been to them and their families. In some cases they just felt full of despair and hopeless before they contacted ICAN. Marcia helped them see what they could do to help the cancer patient and find the best current medical care. ICAn is there locally and globally.

The Great!
