The International Cancer Alliance for Research and Education (ICARE) is a non-profit organization that provides focused information to individuals affected by cancer and their physicians on an ongoing, person-to-person basis. Cancer is a general term referring to a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled cellular growth that may invade surrounding tissues and spread (metastasize) to other bodily tissues or organs. The different cancers may be classified based upon the organ and cell type involved, the nature of the malignancy, and the disease's clinical course. ICARE has developed several patient-centered programs through a process of collection, evaluation, and dissemination of information, bringing affected individuals into contact with physicians and scientists from around the world. The alliance is operated by a network of scientists, clinicians, staff members, and lay volunteers, many of who are affected by cancer themselves. The alliance maintains the ICARE Registry; a confidential membership listing that permits ongoing dialogue between ICARE and its network members.
