Diversity & Inclusion in Scientific Research Underpinning Prevention & Therapy Trials
DISRUPT is a project that tries to address the lack of diversity in cancer clinical trials. DISRUPT is working to improve representation of Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, People of Color, people with health conditions and impairments, and LGBTQ+ persons in clinical trials by “disrupting” norms at the community, patient and provider, and research pipeline levels. DISRUPT was selected by Stand Up To Cancer (Su2C) as part of its Health Equity Initiative. The DISRUPT project is about increasing awareness of and access to information about cancer clinical trials among Black, Indigenous, and People of Color, Community Partners play a critical role in this project. There are so many ways that you can participate in a study to help save lives. You can fill out a questionnaire, taking part in focus group discussion (sharing your thoughts), having your blood drawn, involvement with the testing of vaccines, medications or medical devices .To learn more about clinical trials and research studies visit https://www.stopcancernyc.org.

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.
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.

Angel Wings for Veterans provides transportation to vital medical care for active military, veterans and their families through the following services:
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.

Colorectal Cancer Alliance
The Alliance focuses on three pillars- Screen, Care, Cure. I have included the corresponding links to our site.
Screening- The number one way to reduce the risk for colorectal cancer and everyone should get screened. The Alliance has created a screening quiz that helps patients find the right screening option for them. We have resources that educate on risk factors, such as symptoms, age (including early detection) and family history. We also have assistance programs for those in need of screening.
Care- Our patient and family support navigators provide hope and support to patients, families, caregivers, and survivors. We have multiple emotional support resources, including a Buddy program, Online Communities, and a Daily Chat. We also offer a Financial Assistance program for those in treatment, a Clinical Trial Finder, and a Personalized Treatment Program for stage III and IV patients.
Cure- Our research agenda includes advancing biomarker research, understanding early onset (diagnosed under age 50), decreasing late-stage diagnosis of high-risk populations, and many other important topics to help end this disease.
Mesothelioma Hope was founded by a group of medical and legal advocates whose goal was to provide a comprehensive database for people diagnosed with mesothelioma. Some of the Mesothelioma Hope services are:
Mesothelioma Treatment Options- There are several treatment options available for malignant mesothelioma. These options include surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation.
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.

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.
