The Mark Shames Research Advocacy Program
The Exon 20 Group at ICAN was of great value to Mark and his family by providing guidance during his cancer journey. Your generous donations will help extend this same level of support to other patients who are battling this same disease and to their families, and work toward a cure.
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!"
