Dear Angels Anonymous,
My family and I wish to say the BIGGEST HEART FELT THANK YOU TO YOU we could possibly give for our wonderful trip to Disney! In the past 7 years we have lived with my devastating illness, which has left us mentally, physically and financially devastated. However with your amazing generosity, we were able to spend a week at a magical place worry free and the best part was I was able to watch my beautiful wife and 2 boys smile again!
Life truly is precious and unfortunately we all take it for granted until a life changing disease is introduced into the family, then every little detail, memory and hug becomes very important! We have also found that this illness has shown us that our country has so many wonderful people in it, always willing to go out of their way to help and Angels Anonymous certainly does that!
You have given us a wonderful gift that has been amazing to build lasting memories and again we can never thank you enough, you definitely are Angels and may God bless you each and every day!

Angelo was a huge Toronto Maple Leafs Fan. He and his boys who are 8 and 12 would watch every Maple Leafs game. His wish was to have some involvement with the Leafs team but unfortunately he passed away before we could make that happen. What we were able to do with help from our volunteer Cathy Forster, and an anonymous donor, was to send the boys, Alex and Oliver to a Leafs game.
They were able to meet the players on the ice after the game and also got into the changing room to talk to some of the players. The smile on the boys faces showed what a great time was had by all.
Phoebe wanted to take her family to New York. She wrote to us in her letter, “If I can have a chance I want to be with my children in a place that they would like to see, the place that they have never been and can only see in books, magazines and TV; I want to be with them to create memories that they will treasure for the rest of their lives. This will be a dream come true for me.”
We sent the family to the Big Apple for a trip to remember!

Carla is a huge fan of Shania Twain. In fact she at one time lived in Timmins, Ontario – the same town that Shania grew up in. Carla’s wish was to attend the Shania Twain concert to be held in Calgary in July. Getting tickets for this Event was not an easy task but we got two great seats for Carla and her friend Shirley.
We wanted to make sure Carla and Shirley made it to the Concert in plenty of time so we called White Pearl Limousines to hire them to pick up the ladies and bring them back home after the Concert. Kristy, from White Pearl Limousines emailed us to say that they wanted to donate their services for the night! They picked up Carla and Shirley and then were at the Concert after it was over to bring them back home. We supplied spending money for them to get CD’s of Shania and a great time was had by all.
