Christmas Angel Tree - RVH - Hang an angel in memory or honour...

RVH lobby filled with angels. Royal  Victoria  Regional  Health  Centre’s  (RVH)  Main  lobby was filled with angels for the annual Angel Tree ceremony held on November 27.This is the eighth year the Angel Tree ceremony, founded by Brenda Stanley, owner of Heart of Business, has been held at RVH.  The initiative supported Bell Media’s Radio for  Cardiology  pledge  to  the  Hearts  &  Minds  campaign,  raising  funds  specifically  for  RVH’s  regional  heart program.  The  pledge  was  recently  completed  in  May when, during the live radiothon in RVH’s main lobby, the teams from Pure Country and 104.1 The Dock announced they had reached the $1 million goal.

Both Brenda Stanley and Bell Media have committed to continue their support until RVH is delivering cardiac care 24/7.The beloved holiday tradition was kicked-off with the placement  of  the  first  two  angels  on  the  beautifully-decorated tree.An angel was placed by Janice Skot, RVH president and CEO, in memory of her mother Terry O’Brien and the second  angel  by  Linda  Sansom,  a  registered  respiratory  therapist.  Ransom  placed  an  angel  in  memory  of  her  colleague  Mary  German,  who  passed  away  almost  a  year ago from cancer. Her angel also represents all staff, physicians, volunteers and patients who have also passed away this year. “The holidays can be a difficult time for people, especially if  they  have  lost  someone  they  love.  It  is  also  a  special  time  to  be  inspired  by  angels  who  are  still  among  us,”  says Skot. “The Angel Tree ceremony is a beautiful way to remember those people, while at the same time supporting the  important  work  we  are  doing  to  bring  care  closer  to  home. We are fortunate to live in a community so full of generous and kind-hearted people.”RVH invites patients, visitors, physicians and volunteers to  honour  a  friend  or  loved  one  this  holiday  season  by  supporting  the  Angel  Tree  campaign. 

The angels  are purchased for a minimum donation of $10 from the RVH Foundation, located in the health centre’s Main lobby near Café  Royale,  until  December  23  or  online  at  AngelTree.Kintera.org.  Royal  Victoria  Regional  Health  Centre  (RVH)  recently  hosted the official launch of the Angel Tree campaign with the placing of the first angels on the tree by Janice Skot (right), RVH president and CEO, and Linda Sansom, a registered  respiratory  therapist.  Skot  placed  an  angel  in  memory  of  her  mother,  Terry  O’Brien,  and  Sansom  to  honour colleague Mary German who passed away almost a year ag
