Who is ICare?
The International Cancer Alliance for Research and Education (ICARE) is a non-profit organization, 501(c) (3), that supports, initiates and directs cutting edge cancer research projects and provides high-quality, focused, user-friendly cancer information to each patient as well as their physician on an ongoing, personalized basis.

¥ To increase the flow of new, life-saving therapy information to cancer patients and their doctors.

¥ To hasten the movement of new therapy research from the laboratory to the patient through support of clinical trials and research.
¥ To serve as an active advocate for creativity and innovative thinking in cancer research.
Goals of ICare's Cancer Information

¥ Decrease time required to move promising therapies out of the lab and to the patient.
