Fowler Sensory Garden Horticulture Program

Angie’s Garden is a unique feature of the Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. Made possible through a generous gift from Char and Chuck Fowler and family, Angie’s Garden and Angie’s Institute are named after the Fowler’s daughter, Angie, who passed away just before her 15th birthday in 1984 after a courageous six-month battle with melanoma.

Teen Cancer America spoke with Alison McKim, Horticultural Therapist at UH Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital to discuss the Horticultural Therapy program. Located on the rooftop space adjacent to Angie’s Garden, offers patients a year-round place to enjoy nature-based activities.

“This kind of therapy is something that’s a little different from the other therapies like art or music. You are bringing those to the patient, whereas we’re creating an environment for people to come to. My main desire is to make it peaceful, beautiful and a place of respite,” says McKim.

“Imagine a young teen that comes to a hospital and is very ill. They’re in a room where all kinds of tests are being done to them, procedures and stuff that can be unfamiliar or even frightening. However, one of the things they’re separated from that most people take for granted is their affinity with nature and the outside world.

The Angie Fowler Adolescent & Young Adult Cancer Institute has not only created a space for families to take a break from the clinical environment without leaving the facility but addresses the unique needs of teens and young adults with cancer from ages 15 to 30.
