Case Western Reserve, University Hospitals fundraising for adolescent, young adult cancer
Date:6/30/2014

Leaders from Case Western Reserve University and University Hospitals this evening announced a new collaborative fundraising effort focused on Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer. The news came as Chuck and Char Fowler announced their third major philanthropic commitment aimed at defeating the disease that claimed their 14-year-old daughter, Angie, in 1983.

Inspired by the new collaboration and the Fowlers' generosity, an anonymous donor also made a $5 million contribution to support the Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute at University Hospitals (UH) Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital.

"Even as our nation has made immense strides in improving survival rates for pediatric and adult cancer patients, we have made far too little progress for teens and young adults," Case Western Reserve University President Barbara R. Snyder said. "Chuck and Char Fowler have helped bring unprecedented attention and resources to this critical need, and we feel privileged to build on their efforts with this new collaborative initiative."

Thomas F. Zenty III, chief executive officer of University Hospitals, noted that the funds for Angie's Institute are earmarked for completion of the Institute's 7th-floor inpatient area. The donor's gift is anticipated to inspire an additional $5 million in support from the philanthropic community by matching dollar for dollar gifts to Angie's Institute that range from $25,000 to $1 million.

"These gifts will amplify UH and CWRU as national leaders in treating and curing adolescent and young adult cancers," Zenty said. "This extraordinary philanthropic support for both research and clinical care promises to significantly advance treatments for our young cancer patients and AYA patients around the world."

The Fowlers' $6.7 million pledge to Case Western Reserve University will support an extraordinary array of state-of-the- art research initiatives designed to develop breakthrough
