Zia’s family has been supporting Hope and Heroes for many years. Below is some information on how they help kids that have cancer.
Hope & Heroes (www.hopenandheroes.org) funds the life-saving work on childhood cancer and blood disorders at Columbia University Medical Center – including cutting-edge research, support for families, and care that always puts children first. The pediatric cancer program at Columbia is ranked #1 in the tri-state area by US News & World Report. More than 15,000 children are diagnosed with cancer each year in the U.S, and one in four will not survive. Yet, pediatric cancer receives only 4% of all cancer-related research funding.
Support from Hope & Heroes provides for over half of the annual budget for the Division of Pediatric Hematology, Oncology and Stem Cell Transplantation at Columbia University Medical Center. Through Hope & Heroes, Columbia ensures that all patients treated for pediatric cancer and blood disorders have access to the newest and most advanced treatments. We make more clinical trials available to our patients than any other hospital, and have some of the best researchers in the world leading our labs. However, our patient care doesn’t end there. We offer other care options like integrative therapies and psychosocial care to patients and families starting at the moment of a diagnosis. And our survivor wellness program continues to provide support to patients after treatment is over and throughout the rest of their lives. Almost half of our patient families demonstrate financial need. Hope & Heroes ensures that every child we treat receives the highest caliber of care – regardless of their ability to pay.
