The Calgary Flames Foundation welcomed a special family from the Rotary Flames House. Rotary Flames House opened in 2009 as Alberta’s only pediatric hospice. Inside the beautiful home the Calgary Flames Foundation helped make a reality, children with life-limiting and complex medical conditions – and their families – can access compassionate respite and end-of-life care as well as special day programming tailored to each child. As well as funding the original hospice building, the Calgary Flames Foundation has continued to support Rotary Flames House since it was built with annual fundraising and donations.
