Together, rare cancers account for more than 20% of all cancer diagnoses.  This is more than any single common cancer.  Unfortunately, the average outcome for patients with a rare cancer is inferior to those with more common cancers.  In an attempt to address this issue, the International Rare Cancers Initiative (IRCI) was established early in 2011.
