We are sorry about your diagnosis but we are pleased that you have found the International Cancer Alliance for Research and Education (ICARE) — a 501(3)(c) tax exempt public charity since 1985. In 2010, ICARE.org began to focus its programs on building and funding local and international medical academic research teams (I-TEAMS) that can support decisions of individual patients and their doctors — rather than on just providing research information to the general public.
