(Cancer Liaison and Action Network)

CLAN is a network that link all persons involved in the fight against cancer and not only those who have access to Internet. Part of the object of CLAN is to obtain the particulars (names, affiliations, addresses...) of all persons involved in this fight who do not yet have such access and may never have, but who should not be excluded from the international community for this reason. CLAN will thus be an interface and information relay between those who are and are not connected to the Internet. To meet this objective requires the active participation of many volunteers. We welcome any suggestions and offers of cooperation. Please write to salomon@tribunes.com
