Support Angie's Institute at UH Rainbow Babies & Children's

UH Rainbow Babies & Children's

Pediatric hematology and oncology specialists at UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute offer young patients the latest advancements in childhood cancer and blood disorder care, with outcomes that rank among the best in the nation.

Char and Chuck Fowler and their family, Chann and Ed Spellman, and Holley and Rob Martens, established Angie's Institute in honor of their daughter and sister Angie, who was just 14-years-old when she died of melanoma in 1983. For the Fowlers, joining with families and generous supporters has made Angie's Institute truly special.

"Losing Angie at that age, there was real grief in not knowing what she would have been like as an adult and what she could have accomplished," shared her sisters, Chann and Holley. "But being able to celebrate the institute in her name, even all these years later, has been so therapeutic."
