For the first time, ISNCC is launching a Crowdfunding Campaign to provide travel scholarships for a limited number of nurses from low- and middle-income countries to attend the International Conference of Cancer Nurses (ICCN 2020) on 29 March – 1 April 2020, at Imperial College in London, UK.
This crowdfunding opportunity allows anyone to make a charitable donation in support of cancer nurses who may not otherwise be able to attend this prestigious international cancer nursing conference. ICCN offers a unique educational venue to gain knowledge about cancer diseases and treatment, symptom management, survivorship, palliative care, and policy issues, to name a few. It also provides an opportunity for nurses to engage with clinical colleagues, nurse educators, researchers and leaders from around the world, often identifying valuable mentors and/or making lifelong friends.
Crowdfunding has become a successful method for raising funds for worthy causes and this is truly an important avenue of support for our global oncology nursing community and the patients we serve. Please take a moment to visit the ISNCC GoFundMe Campaign as follows and help us to exceed our goal of raising $10,000:
Your contribution will have a lasting impact on the care of cancer nurses, patients, and families around the world.

Applications for scholarships will be accepted on the ISNCC website and will be reviewed competitively by the ISNCC Nominations and Awards Committee.
