Institution Location: Akron, OH
Institution: Akron Children's Hospital

The impact that cancer has on a child/teen reaches far beyond the physical ailment. The psychological impact can be just as devastating. Recent studies have shown that 32% of adolescent and young adult patients suffer from symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Akron Children's Hospital treats a minimum of 90 newly diagnosed children and adolescents with cancer annually. Akron Children's will assess patient and family experiences during and post cancer treatment. The goal of the study will be to create a uniform infrastructure to formalize pathways to support the emotional needs of patients and their families.

This grant has been funded by and named for The Abbey E. Foltz Fund, a St. Baldrick’s Hero Fund. Abbey was diagnosed with osteosarcoma of the right tibia when she was 14 years old and a freshman in high school. She loved school, spending time with her family and friends and dancing. All that changed as she battled cancer with ongoing treatments and surgeries. Yet through it all, Abbey remained positive, focused on helping others and aspired to be a nurse. Sadly, she passed away while in her first year of college. Her family carries on Abbey’s legacy of making a difference for patients and their families with this Hero Fund by funding childhood cancer research in Northeastern Ohio.
