A Gift from the Heart

Darlene & Stephen Hickle with daughters Emily & Melissa

Emily and Melissa Hickle know the greatest gifts of all are those that come from the heart.  Rather than accepting presents on their birthday, the two sisters, chose to use their special days to honour their aunt, Brenda Moffitt.

Brenda was a cardiac operating room nurse at the University of Alberta Hospital for over 30 years.  She knew first-hand the many benefits the Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute would provide to patients.  Sadly, on May 2, 2008, Brenda passed away and never had the opportunity to work in the new facility.  To honour her passion to continually raise the bar in nursing excellence, Brenda's father, Harold Moffitt, created the Brenda Moffitt Memorial Fund in Support of Nursing Education.

"It felt good to raise money for Aunty Bren's fund, because we knew we were making a difference and helping.  It's not always about getting presents on your birthday.  It's also about giving."
