ICAN seeks to accelerate the anticancer drug pipeline, from lab to patient, through our unique Program Services including patient advocacy and clinical trials programs--working with oncologists and cancer researchers on drug discovery and drug development initiatives that will ultimately benefit Stage IV patients. We need smart, highly motivated, and friendly volunteers interested in joining our Research, Graphic Design and Web Development departments, and public policy and legislative affairs areas. ICAN has received the "Top Rated Health Care Nonprofit Award" each year since the founding of Great Nonprofits. ICAN is Platinum rated for accountability and transparency on GuideStar--the highest rating.
ICAN is proud of our effective board governance and our highly acclaimed special events. We are also extremely proud of our 24/7/365 Program Services staff, our volunteers who span 17 time zones, as well as our energized boards and councils. ICAN is truly making a difference in the War on Cancer on multiple levels. ICAN's staff, led by our CEO Marcia Horn, a former commercial litigator and appellate lawyer, looks forward to working with you and will do everything possible to make sure that your time is used wisely. We highly value your volunteer commitment of whatever time you wish to devote to our vitally important mission and strategic vision. We attract exceptionally talented undergraduate, graduate, post-doc, and medical students, hard-working stay-at-home moms, dads, and grandparents, and professionals from every career imaginable--whether currently employed or having been laid off yet still wanting to devote productive hours to a great cause such as ICAN. Our volunteer slots are virtual and unpaid, meaning you work from your own home or office.
