Welcome To Team DVL!
We are thrilled to be a part of the 9th Annual Hope & Heroes Walk on Sunday, May 20th, 2018 to support children with cancer and blood disorders and their families.
Team DVL supports the Developmental Therapeutics and Precision Medicine programs for children with hard to treat cancers at Columbia University. Overall 75-80% of children diagnosed with cancer will be cured. But that still leaves too many children for whom our standard therapies are NOT succeeding. We offer over 30 clinical trials of new agents and are the only Children's Oncology Group/ National Cancer Institute recognized site to do so in the New York Tri-state area. In addition to being the top enrolling in the country, we also offer a specialized brand of care with lots of heart!
Our clinical trials are applied with molecular precision. With the help of philanthropic partners like you, the PIPseq initiative has expanded to enable every child in NYC to have their tumor sequenced regardless of their ability to pay. Sequencing allows us to discover the biological pathways that drive growth and metastasis. We hope this strategy will allow us to direct patients to therapies that are more effective and less toxic.
I am asking for you to support me by joining TEAM DVL and fundraising for the event. Even if you are unable to join us that day, you can join as Virtual Walker and make a tax-deductible donation today.
