Long Island Sound Personal Challenge

Columbia Sea Lions

Pediatric Hematology and Oncology specialists at Columbia University Irving Medical Center combine cutting edge expertise with compassion when caring for every patient. Our goals are not only to provide effective therapies for malignancies and nonmalignant hematologic disorders, but to return children to lives that are normal and as constructive as possible so they can grow up to be happy and healthy adults.

What sets our program apart is its roots in science, with strong laboratory and translational research initiatives and a robust portfolio of clinical trials, including pivotal early phase studies. We are combining the fruits if these investigations with advances in genomics and molecular biology to identify more precise methods to treat patients.

We are also studying new treatment methods using the immune system, called immunotherapies, offering promise for helping to treat many different types of cancer. Our team is studying specific immune cells in and around the tumor microenvironment to determine the best approach in applying immunotherapy to childhood cancers.

We joined the SAA community so that, together, we can raise money to research ways of preventing cancer and ending cures for children and adults.

As Swim Across Ameria events have been restructured all over the country due to COVID19, we are joining in on the personal challenge for 2020, "Making Waves in a Different Way". You can swim, run, walk, golf, bike or choose any other activity to challenge yourself.

I know it is a difficult time, we would certainly appreciate anything you can do to help us continue to honor our patients and loved ones.
