International Cancer Advocacy Network (ICAN), www.askican.org , a cancer patient advocacy organization and 501(c)(3) charitable organization based in Phoenix, Arizona, seeks to accelerate the anticancer drug pipeline, from lab to patient, through ICAN's Personalized Cancer Case Manangement Programs including cancer patient advocacy and clinical trials advocacy programs, and by working with oncologists and cancer researchers across the world on drug discovery and drug development initiatives that will ultimately benefit Stage IV cancer patients. We have great need for smart, highly motivated, and collegial volunteers interested in joining our Research Services department, graphic design and web development departments, and public education and legislative affairs areas. ICAN has received from Great Nonprofits the "Top Rated Health Care Nonprofit Award" each year since the founding of Great Nonprofits. ICAN is Gold Seal rated for accountability and transparency on GuideStar.
ICAN, International Cancer Advocacy Network, www.askican.org, is a 501(c)(3) cancer charity, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, with Friends of ICAN chapters in formation across the U.S. Our Stage IV cancer patients--the niche within the War on Cancer that we serve--hail from all 50 states, all U.S. territories, and 54 countries.
We are 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 more than 900 loyal volunteers spanning 17 time zones, and 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, 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.
