Cancer Survivors Center funded for children

Cleveland, April 21, 2004: With support from the Lance Armstrong Foundation, Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital will create a new Center for the Survivors of Childhood Cancer. The Foundation, which has been developed "to enhance the quality of life for those living with, through, and beyond cancer" (http://www.laf.org) is providing $100,000 to plan the development of the Center, and intends to commit $150,000 each year for three years to support the program. The Rainbow Board of Trustees has committed matching funds for the same period of time.

The pediatric hospital of University Hospitals of Cleveland (UHC), Rainbow is the largest referral center in northern Ohio for children with leukemia, lymphomas, and childhood solid tumors.

Armour conceived the idea for Center. "This program is about children and their families living with and surviving cancer. The cancer experience is a struggle and many survivors feel as though they've been given the gift of life, but it is a hollow gift unless survivors emerge from their experience capable of living a full and productive life."

The Center will be a community resource located outside of the hospital environment, and be open to pediatric cancer patients at facilities throughout northern Ohio, including the Cleveland Clinic and MetroHealth Medical Center. The expertise of pediatricians, psychologists, nurses and oncologists from University Hospitals Ireland Cancer Center will be called upon to develop various services and programs, including:

  • Care management programs to manage and monitor the impact of cancer treatment and potential side effects, including cognitive delays, and problems in growth and d
