Review for ICAN, International Cancer Advocacy Network, Phoenix, AZ, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

ICAN has been very supportive to both patients and their families. A case that I personally witnessed was with a fellow T.B. who came to ICAN in his final days! Both he and his wife were in severely depressed. A friend told me that his wife was furious with the world and would not cooperate. Her husband T.B. was very impressed Marcia Horn and thankful for the help he received..Marcia met with the wife and after a few meetings she became very supportive. After T.B. died Marcia and his wife continued to meet and she has beome a volunteer! There just is not enough time in the day for Marcia, she even recruited me to participate in an ICAN project for which I need to make the time! With her example, I will. Eugene B. Shapiro.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Help extended to family and friends. Just amazing what is possible. If only ICAN had more funding or financial support!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

introduce them to wealthy, foundations, phamaceutical companies and the NIH. Somehow, if the got a major grant they could develop their computor engine for everyone to use.
