    As one of the leading lymphoma cancer centers in New York and the entire country, the Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medical College and New York Presbyterian Hospital is at the forefront of lymphoma treatment, research and clinical care. Weill Cornell offers the latest in lymphoma treatments, often optimized to enhance efficacy and reduce side-effects, while also offering one of the largest portfolios of lymphoma clinical trial options in the world. The Center offers comprehensive lymphoma treatment with compassionate and personalized care. Many treatment regimens allow patients to avoid chemotherapy altogether, and the team makes every effort to provide new treatment options for those patients in situations where standard therapies are not effective. Weill Cornell has a strong collaboration between the patient care team, lymphoma clinical trial staff and laboratory scientists in order to bring the latest insights in lymphoma to patients. The affiliation with New York Presbyterian Hospital, one of the best hospitals in the U.S., provides Weill Cornell patients with access to the same high quality care in other medical specialties (such as cardiology, neurology and gastroenterology) should complications arise during treatment. Between their cutting-edge, innovative lymphoma therapies, a vast array of lymphoma clinical trials, and strong connection to New York Presbyterian Hospital, Weill Cornell represents an unparalleled option for those seeking lymphoma cancer treatment not only in New York, but for those from elsewhere in the country and the world.

    What do you say to somebody who saved your life, that gave me my life back? Weill Cornell has a very broad portfolio of clinical trials. Really, we are working with collaborators across the country, across the world, and really understanding and knowing and moving the field forward and bringing to our patients the best treatments, the newest drugs that are out there, different options, in some cases, less toxic treatment. I was on borrowed time. I was really on borrowed time. I met Dr. Furman and he said to me, "You are a candidate for one of the trials. It's worked with a lot of other patients that I have." He said, "So I don't see why it's not going to work with you." He says, "If it does, you'll be dancing in five weeks." What I think is really so important for CLL is not to cure patients, but to make the CLL go into remission and stay in remission, and be easily controlled with something as simple as a pill a day that's well tolerated, really, truly making CLL a chronic disease. Getting from the time that he gave me the trial to being, I'd say, about 90% back to normal took maybe another two months. But it was completely different. At least, my life was given back to me. Otherwise, it would have been over. Weill Cornell is such a large research center which focuses on everything from the bench to the bedside really affords us an opportunity to treat patients with drugs and trials and ideas that are really quite novel. When you look at the past 15 years, virtually every single lymphoma drug that's been approved by the FDA for treatment of patients with lymphoma has been developed in part at Cornell, and that means that our patients here have had access to these drugs, in general, often years before they've become widely available. One of the benefits of being treated at Weill Cornell and New York Presbyterian is that we are part of really one of the best hospitals in the world. When people are diagnosed with cancer, they often need care not only from their oncologist, but they might need a cardiologist or another specialist. When making the decision to go to Weill Cornell, knowing that a general hospital was attached to it, that was, by far, a priority because through chemo, there are so many other things that can happen to you. The lymphoma group works as a team, and I think one of its strengths is that we work individually, but also collectively.
