Review for ICAN, International Cancer Advocacy Network, Phoenix, AZ, USA
Marcia Horn was nothing short of a godsend to us when my husband first got diagnosed with an EGFR mutation NSCLC. We had felt utterly hopeless until a desperate late-evening internet search led me to ICAN. I immediately sent an email inquiry through its website, and within minutes I received a "call me asap" reply from Marcia. She was so kind and wonderful to speak with and was an absolute wealth of information, spending almost an hour on the phone with me that very night, downloading me on the treatment info, advances, data, research, etc, specific to my husband's disease. Her information helped validate the treatment protocol that was being prescribed for him, which in turn brought us both confidence in our doctors as well as a sense of relief that we were moving in the right direction. I hung up from our conversation with a feeling of hope that I had not had before. That very phone call made all the difference in how we moved forward with a treatment plan and true hope for recovery.
