The Andy Hurwitz Guiding Light Program
In Loving Memory
What people are saying:
"Because of ICAN, I have an ongoing lifeline of information support plus the moral support of this incredible organization, and I now have a real passion to talk to other late-stage cancer patients … to emphasize the importance of patient empowerment and clinical trials."
"Once again, it was so helpful to talk to someone that understands and could help us navigate our choices. Especially when the choices could have life or death consequences.
I will keep you updated and once again,
"ICAN was the calm in the midst of our storm. Without their analytical abilities, their network of contacts and above all, their time and compassion, I don't know what we would have done. I'll be forever grateful."
"You were a Godsend at a very scary time in his, and our, lives. Male breast cancer is very rare, and without your help and guidance we wouldn't have had a clue where to turn. I am happy to say that my dad did NOT die of cancer... Thanks again!"
"By keeping in touch with us and intuitively providing us with the information we need to know, ICAN is truly the best "coach" imaginable... As a result, we have been able to express our questions to our oncology team in a compelling manner. Cheers to ICAN - here's to life, to hope, and to vitality!"

The Andy Hurwitz Guiding Light Program
is a vital part of ICAN's Cancer Patient Advocacy and Clinical Trials Advocacy Programs.
To all Andy’s wonderful friends, family and many other members of the “Magical Andy Love Network”.
I would like to honor Andy’s name and memory by setting up the “The Andy Hurwitz Guiding Light” program through a cancer advocacy and support network. I am asking each of you to consider making a small donation towards ICAN in Andy’s name to perpetuate a service that provided us amazing support during her 5 year heroic battle. ICAN is run by Marcia Horn who is a phenomenal personal cancer guru that spent countless hours guiding us through the complex medical maze, while being personally invested and amazingly kind and compassionate.
ICAN worked with Andy and Jeremy during the course of Andy's journey with cancer. Andy's battle represents the paragon ICAN patient: creative, proactive, and engaged in every treatment issue, with an unrelenting focus on life and quality of life--emphasizing empowered, shared decision-making with her spouse and every member of her oncology team. The patient advocates at ICAN salute Jeremy for his utter devotion to Andy and for never for one minute losing his laser-lens focus in dealing with and resolving the many challenging issues that confronted their team of oncologists and other specialists. Andy and Jeremy did everything right, utilizing the best of surgical oncology, medical oncology, interventional radiology, and state-of-the-art tumor profiling. They evaluated clinical trials and compassionate use options as well. Andy's bravery, optimism, and tenacity were much admired by everyone on her team, and she will always represent to us at ICAN a scintillating guiding light for those who are in the battle for their lives.
