Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute: The Passion Behind Our Name

Comprehensive Care for Cancer and Blood Disorders

Being told your child has cancer or a blood disorder can be overwhelming. In addition to a healthy future, you want to know your child is in the right place to receive the very best care possible. At University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s, our pediatric cancer and blood disorder team is passionate about improving outcomes for children with these challenging diagnoses.

We understand the emotional implications of childhood cancer and blood disorders. Our team is comprised of nationally recognized physicians who are leaders in their respective fields, as well as compassionate support staff, including a nurse navigator, to guide every patient and family on their care journey and clinical psychologist who is a survivor of young adult cancer herself. This multidisciplinary approach is specifically designed to provide a new and better care experience for pediatric patients of all ages – from tiny newborns to young adults.

Family-Centered and Community-Based Care

UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital was designed with patient and family input. Patients who receive cancer treatment at the main campus have access to a comfortable, age-appropriate and family-centered environment. Each patient room includes sleeping couches to accommodate family members. In close proximity to the child’s room, parents and family members can access refreshment stations, bathrooms, community rooms and other amenities, including a rooftop healing garden.

To connect our patients with others who understand what they’re going through, we facilitate a robust program of group clinics and cancer support programs. Young children with cancer can participate in Iris S. & Bert L. Wolstein's Helping Kids with Cancer sports programs, while teens have access to meet-ups in nonclinical locations like restaurants. Families have the opportunity to meet other parents during group clinics for both cancer and blood disorders.

Unmatched Access to Clinical Trials and Innovative Therapies

Pediatric cancers differ from adult cancers. We are internationally recognized for our research in pediatric cancer and blood disorder therapies, which are improving survival rates among young patients. As part of an academic medical center, our patients have access to the latest medical advances and clinical trials. We are one of the very first medical centers to offer the revolutionary CAR T-cell therapy in clinical trials for young patients with cancer.

We are home to Ohio’s first proton therapy center – one of very few in the world located on the same campus as a full-service, nationally ranked children’s hospital. University Hospitals offers every radiation therapy currently available to fight cancer to provide patients with more options for treatment.

A Lifetime of Care and Supportive Services

Many children who have undergone cancer treatment may experience challenges for years, or even decades, following treatment. At Angie’s Institute, we offer each patient cancer care that extends into young adulthood and beyond. We will be there as a child grows to assist with any concerns that may come up as a result of his or her cancer or cancer treatment. Many children diagnosed with a blood disorder also face challenges well into adulthood. Our cancer and blood disorder patients have access to services and clinical support for a full lifetime of expert, continuity of care.

One-of-a-Kind Cancer Treatment Center for Adolescents and Young Adults

Often caught between pediatric and adult cancer treatment, adolescents and young adults face unique challenges. Their cancers, treatments and social needs differ from infants, younger children and adults. We are dedicated to providing the comprehensive, supportive care this age group needs. In addition to early diagnosis strategies and lifesaving treatment options, we provide personalized support services for teens and young adults in an environment made just for them.
