ICARE is a multinational, 501(c)3 non-profit network of global cancer scientists, doctors, and patients who work in collaboration to identify, evaluate, personalize, and accelerate access to emerging therapeutic options or technologies. ICARE does this by creating personalized exploratory or Investigative Teams (I-Teams) which begin locally with one patient, one doctor and one cancer researcher. As global participants join the ICARE network, these Investigative Teams (I-Teams) allow individual patients and their local doctors to participate in real-time, personalized academic research projects and these projects are driven solely by patient needs and are not limited by institutional and national boundaries.
This is a charity fundraiser to raise money for metastatic breast cancer research. There are a LOT of cancer organizations out there doing good work, but most of them don't deal with stage IV cancer patients. Only 3% of cancer research funding goes to studying metastatic disease, which kills thousands of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, and children every year. My cancer was metastatic when they found it - it had already gone to my bones. 80% of us die within 5 years of diagnosis, and I am in year 4. I am in a hurry, and so are many of us with metastatic cancer. We need options, and most of them are held up in trials. The trial process can take years, which many of us don't have. ICARE wants to speed up the process to save patients like me.
