International Cancer Advocacy Network (ICAN) is a third party to OCS and is the charity that OCS encourages you to support
“ICAN® is a 501(c)(3) patient advocacy and research advocacy organization with a small staff of professional advocates assisted by hundreds volunteers worldwide. With our volunteer leadership representing 17 different time zones, we literally work around the clock, focusing on our Personalized Medicine Cancer Case Navigation Programs, health information technology issues, legislative initiatives, and research projects.
ICANs aims to provide you with the best patient advocates and the most effective cancer patient advocacy possible, with the twin goals of working to extend your life with the highest quality of life.
ICAN® advocates for you – the patient – or for the patient’s spouse or family member who wants to manage the details of their loved one’s cancer case with us.
ICAN are beholden to no one – no oncology practice, no medical center, no clinical trial, and no biotech or pharmaceutical company.
Your case is unique and in our many years of non-stop advocacy services, we’ve never seen two patient cases remotely alike.
ICAN® empowers you to navigate rapidly-expanding diagnostic and personalized treatment options. This information will assist you in informed discussions with family and providers.
ICAN never, ever, compromise patient privacy (zealous implementers of HIPAA) – We will not disclose your name or any identifying information, or exploit your case for fundraising purposes.”
