The Further You Go, The Closer We All Get 

At Columbia’s Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center (HICCC), we know that our patients aren’t the only ones facing cancer. When someone is diagnosed, everyone around them – their family, friends, and even their doctors – are touched by that cancer as well. Every victory is a communal victory. Every loss is a communal loss.

That’s why we at Columbia are dedicated to bringing care, support and hope to everyone touched by cancer. When you raise money for Velocity, you are fueling the innovation, collaboration and discovery that has put Columbia’s HICCC at the forefront of cutting edge cancer research.
