Angels Amongst Us

History

In 2004, staff were approached by two families who have recently lost loved once to kidney disease, inquiring about a memorial program. With the families’ input our Program was developed and aptly named Angels Amongst Us. A beautiful etched-glass Angel wall plaque was created, with wings spread.

The Angel Family

Feathers are available on both wings to memorialize one’s battle with kidney disease, their contribution to the community, and/or their family’s love. For information about the purchase of a feather, please contact the Kidney Foundation of Canada – Manitoba Branch at 204-989-0800.

Building a Legacy

This caring tribute also strives to assist other Manitoba families battling kidney disease. All Angels Amongst Us donations are designated to support local patient programs.

On Thursday, November 30th, 2017, our Angels Amongst Us Reception was held at the branch office in Winnipeg. Ten new angels were inducted onto the beautiful etched-glass wall plaque. It was a very impressive group being remembered; people who had accomplished greatness in many cases, despite what some might call “shortened lives”. Stories of optimism, positive attitudes, and caring & helping ways filled the room. Family members/representatives were presented with a beautiful angel figurine.

Viewing of the memorial are available during office business hours; however special arrangements can be made also.

To learn more about the Angels Amongst Us Program and how you can honour a loved one, please contact our office at 204-989-0800.
