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

Rating: 5 stars  

Three years ago, I was diagnosed with metasticized pancreatic cancer (yes, I am very fortunate to have lived this long, with an ongoing good quality of life). A family friend referred me to ICAN. I contacted them, and Marcia Horn, the executive director, became my advocate. Marcia has been absolutely fantastic. She has given me expert, actionable feedback and advice every step of the way. She is always extremely responsive. She has worked closely with my local doctors. And she connected me to a world-renowned genetic cancer specialist, who will put me on a nonstandard genetically tailored chemo regime when the standard regimes are no longer effective.

More generally, Marcia works closely with experts and companies around the world to facilitate advances in knowledge and treatment for cancer patients worldwide.
