For patients and families seeking in-depth and detailed information on advanced (Stage 4) cancer, in all its forms, Marcia Horn, President of ICAN (International Cancer Advocacy Network) is truly an indispensable resource. Marcia and her colleagues at ICAN work on a 24/7 basis to acquire and deliver the most pertinent, intelligent and useful information, guiding patients toward the most promising treatment protocols, whether they are FDA-approved or accessible only through clinical trials.
All questions, from scientifically basic to medically sophisticated, are welcomed and thoroughly answered at a level of complexity that precisely matches the patient or family member. Having collaborated closely with Marcia, I can attest to the fact that the quality of ICAN’s services and information is up-to-the-minute fresh, relevant and actionable. In short, for information and advocacy on advanced cancer, Marcia Horn is at the top of my list.
I am enjoying being involved in the EXON 20 GROUP, co-founded by Kevin Hanlon and Robert Hanlon.

I felt so alone and confused with assisting my father in his battle with cancer. After a few months of navigating the complicated world of our medical system, I was put in touch through a family friend with ICAN. A month ago my family was faced with the difficult challenge of choosing the best option given to us by our oncologist, including different clinical trials and standard of care. With all options there were pros and cons. The anxiety I felt making such a difficult decision was eased by the support of ICAN. The team at ICAN was more than responsive. They provided us with resources, guidance, were able to shed light on certain treatments that were effective or ineffective based on my father's genetic makeup. This is something that our oncologist should be able to guide us through, but the issue is oncologists are limited to the resources of their institution. Therefore, we were limited to the information we received. We sought a 2nd opinion and they also had different options. When we asked them which option they felt were better including the other institutions', we were met with opposition. Not surprisingly, they were unable to provide any opinions on the other institutions' progress or therapies. Cancer is a complex disease and there is no one method or approach. The ICAN team made me feel like I had an extended family for support and guidance. All cancer patients and their families should seek support from an organization like ICAN. Marcia Horn is an incredible person. She is not only knowledgeable and dedicated, she also has the kindest heart. I am so thankful to have ICAN help me during this time. The network of professionals and volunteers is deep and ever growing. I thank all those participating as a volunteer through ICAN. My family is grateful for your selfless acts of service to cancer patients and community.
Working with the ICAN and the Golf Tournament Board was very rewarding. The Liberty Mutual Invitational, benefiting ICAN was a wonderful event raising awareness and much needed funds for ICAN.
I have volunteered at several organizations but ICAN is the best organization I have volunteered at. They are so very helpful and supportive. Marcia Horn is the best supportive person I have ever met -online-. I do recommend ICAN for the cancer patients and also Med students.
I had the privilege to work at ICAN as a research volunteer to search for the cutting edge research related to all types of cancer. I had a great opportunity to get to know Marcia Horn as I wanted to do more volunteering work at ICAN. She and Regina was so supportive to help me out and to choose what I can do. I very much believe in ICAN and its amazing leadership. I am not enough thanking ICAN for all the great help to the cancer patients. I am giving them the best possible review, because simply they deserve it.

ICAN is amazing they have been so incredibly helpful for my mother. She is currently battling cervical cancer that has metastasized. ICAN put us in contact with the best doctors which are giving her the best treatment imaginable. Without them this awful disease probably would of taken my mother from me. Truly grateful for ICAN I can't say enough great things about them. They are making a huge difference for my mother and a incredible impact on the cancer society. I couldn't be more happy every time I talk to them they make me feel important like talking to family.

I am studying medicine in Egypt and also I had a great opportunity to be a volunteer at ICAN. So I would like to say it is a wonderful experience and I'm most grateful and thankful to ICAN amazing team and Marcia Horn, the CEO and President. I'm still enjoying my volunteering time with ICAN. ICAN is one of the most greatest non-profit organizations I have ever seen in helping the cancer patients. ICAN has an amazing board who are working 24/7. I am and will be always be supportive to ICAN.
I am volunteering with ICAN for more than 3 years. Very friendly and professional environment with enthusiastic and great people. As a soon to be doctor, my time is tight in medical school and I better invest in it the most rewarding way, I volunteered with many governmental and non- governmental organizations, almost everywhere, online, in Sudan, Saudi Arabia... but nothing could be of more value than the reward of promoting the noble cause of helping cancer patients. I enjoyed my time with ICAN, doing what I like to do and learning new skills and improving what I already have. Great experience. Also, the CEO, the team leaders and members, as well as the admin team, all of them are down to earth, helpful and very kind. I'm leaving 5 stars on my review, I recommend ICAN highly without preservation!
