CANCER SUPPORT PROGRAMS

Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center (Manhattan)

The Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center (HICCC) is the home for cancer research and patient care at Columbia University and NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Irving Medical Center. Our cancer center researchers and physicians are dedicated to understanding the complex biology behind cancer, from before it begins to its evolution and spread. We apply that knowledge to the discovery and design of innovative cancer therapies and prevention strategies that reduce the disease’s incidence and progression and improve the quality of life for all those affected—in our region and throughout the world.

The Integrative Therapies Program provides personalized integrative medicine and supportive care through the patient’s course of treatment, from diagnosis through survivorship. Our licensed acupuncturists offer acupuncture, acupressure, aromatherapy, and mind-body practices to adult oncology patients. All treatments are provided in collaboration with the patient's medical team, and are free of charge.

We offer:

CancerFIT is a free weekly exercise class for cancer patients and survivors that is based on current and emerging research linking exercise to better outcomes in cancer care. The 45-minute classes are open to all who have been diagnosed with cancer regardless of treatment status, and are appropriate for all fitness levels. Each class is specifically tailored towards participants’ fitness levels and needs. Physical therapists oversee the classes, which are led by doctoral students in Columbia University’s Doctor of Physical Therapy Program.

The Cancer Genetics Program provides expert care for patients with a recent cancer diagnosis or a personal history of cancer, as well as for individuals who have a family history of cancer. Genetic testing can help identify hereditary causes of cancer. Results can be used to inform treatment decisions and options for early detection and cancer prevention for those at a heightened risk of cancer.

  • Chaplaincy

  • Fertility Preservation

  • Imerman Angels (Cancer Mentor)

Caring Bridge 

 www.CaringBridge.org 

 

  • CaringBridge helps patients and their family caregivers going through health-related challenges, such as cancer, stay connected with loved ones by providing a free online tool for sharing updates.

  • It’s an easy and ad-free way to communicate news to family and friends—all in one place at the same time without overwhelming the patient and family with endless phone calls, emails and text messages.

  • Families can start a free, personal website to share important information quickly.

  • CaringBridge, which is a nonprofit, does not sell data and the patient/family control over the privacy settings, so a website is as private or public as they want it to be. 

Lymphoma Research Foundation

www.lymphoma.org

The Lymphoma Research Foundation (LRF) offers a wide range of support services, educational programs, and free publications for people with lymphoma and their loved ones.  Whether you are newly diagnosed, are requesting detailed information about lymphoma, are looking for ongoing support, or seeking help with long-term survivorship, LRF is here to help.

  • LRF Helpline: Trained LRF staff members are available to answer questions about a lymphoma diagnosis and treatment.  Callers may request the service of a language interpreter. Please contact the LRF Helpline by phone (800-500-9976) or email (helpline@lymphoma.org), between 9:30 AM and 7:30 PM ET, Monday through Friday.

  • Education Resources: LRF provides in-person and virtual education programs, as well as disease-specific and topic-specific fact sheets and guides to stay up-to-date on the diagnosis and treatment of lymphoma.

  • Clinical Trials Information and Search: LRF’s Clinical Trials Information Service provides patients and caregivers with information about lymphoma treatment clinical trials being conducted at cancer centers throughout the United States.  Upon request, LRF can perform a search for potential lymphoma clinical trials based on medical information provided.

  • Peer Support: LRF’s Lymphoma Support Network (LSN) is a one-to-one peer support program for people with lymphoma and their caregivers.  The LSN connects patients and caregivers with volunteers who have had similar experiences.

  • Commercial Airline Tickets                                                                             Angel Wings for Veterans coordinates charitable flights on commercial airlines for patients and escorts needing to travel more than 750 miles to access medical or rehabilitative care. 

  • Volunteer Pilot Flights                                                                                 Volunteer pilots are available to veterans and caregivers needing transportation for treatment. Patients must be ambulatory, which means they must be able to walk, enter and exit the plane with little or no assistance, and require no medical care (i.e., doctor or nurse) en route. There must be a financial or compelling need for the flight. Volunteer pilots can assist only when the destination is within 750 miles.

  • Long Distance Ground Transportation                                                            Non-local trips for veterans who are unable to fly or who need to travel more than 50 miles to access care. We provide gas cards and commercial train and bus tickets. The typical trip does not exceed 300 miles.

  • Prognosis for Mesothelioma - Patients and families are walked through the prognosis process, which is the predicted outcome of the patient’s condition that describes life expectancy and survival rate. We work with patients in various ways to improve their prognosis.

  • Mesothelioma Attorneys - Financial compensation services that can help pay for cancer treatments, secure your family’s financial future, and hold asbestos companies responsible for their negligence.

  • Mesothelioma Support Groups - Support groups can help you manage your emotional well-being as you battle cancer. These groups are a safe place to go to share your feelings, wins, and challenges with people who truly understand and care about your health.
