Rainbow Babies & Children’s Foundation, Family and Child Life Services, and the Ramer Family

“I can’t say enough good things about Family and Child Life Services at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and how helpful they are. They were amazing, just amazing. I absolutely want to thank everyone who has donated to Child Life. Those dollars make a real difference for families like ours.”

– Ann Ramer, mother of Rainbow patients Lauren and Brent Ramer

UH’s longest-standing benefactor, Rainbow Babies & Children’s Foundation, committed $32.5 million in late 2012 in support of UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.  Without the Rainbow Babies & Children’s Foundation and other kind benefactors, programs like Family and Child Life Services would not be available for our patients.The gift includes continued substantial support of Rainbow’s nationally recognized Family and Child Life Services Program.

“What many people don’t realize is that the services provided by Child Life are not billable by the hospital and not covered by insurance,” says Shari Racut, MA, Interim Manager of the Family and Child Life Services Department. “The funding comes from donors like the Rainbow Foundation. Their giving is what allows us to provide services for patients and families.”

Patricia DePompei, RN, MSN, President of UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital and UH MacDonald Women’s Hospital, is grateful to the foundation for its continued support. “The Rainbow Foundation is as essential to us as the air we breathe. The members are amazing women who are brilliant, passionate and true advocates for the work we do,” she says.
