Dayton Children’s hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, May 27, 2010 formally unveiling the newly renovated family lounge in the inpatient hematology/oncology floor. The new lounge features cozy reclining chairs, a flat screen TV, work space for our younger kids and teens as well. The renovation also allowed us to expand our kitchenette featuring a microwave and full-sized refrigerator. Dayton Children’s received donations from the Mills Family Foundation, Ronald McDonald House  Charities and other local families affected by cancer to support the renovation.  The day marked Alley Barnett’s, Bob Mill’s granddaughter, one year anniversary of her diagnosis of Leukemia (ALL).  Ally and her family helped unveil the renovated family lounge.  In recognition of the Mills family support, the newly renovated space will be named the Mills Family Lounge.

"My entire family has spent countless hours in the family lounge area in the hematology/oncology unit," said donor Bob Mills. "Ideally we hope for a cure, but in the meantime we are extremely happy to provide the funds to renovate the lounge and make it more comfortable for patient families."

Dayton Children’s Comprehensive Care Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders provides state-of-the-art care and a multidisciplinary approach to treatment for children up to 21 years of age with blood disorders or cancer. The center strives to ensure patients’ and families’ medical and psychosocial needs are met, and the new family lounge will aid in improving their overall experience.

Nearly 65 cases of cancer are diagnosed annually at Dayton Children’s and approximately 5,500 children are receiving cancer treatment.
