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

Rating: 5 stars  

A family member found the Exon 20 Group and ICAN after I was diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer in 2018. My diagnosis was, to say the least, overwhelming. After speaking with director Marcia Horn, my family and I have all felt so much better about my treatment options and can’t say enough about the support we get from this amazing group of helpful and caring people. Marcia is an incredible wealth of knowledge and it is so reassuring knowing we have an advocate like her in my corner. Their resident pharmacist Elena Siltanen has also been particularly helpful and so patient with all of my many questions about how to deal with side effects from my treatments, and always has an encouraging word when I’ve reached out. She and Marcia always seem to have answers when I need them most. They genuinely care about every member. I don’t know where we would be without this organization and I’m incredibly grateful for all of their help.
