Celebrate A Loved One

Honour the life of a family member or friend, while supporting enhancements and equipment purchases for all of our palliative patients and their families.

Create a Lasting Memory

Displaying a loved one’s name on a Tranquility Garden Butterfly is a very special way to celebrate the life of a family member or friend, while supporting enhancements and equipment purchases for the hospital.

Our ‘Tranquility Garden’ patio area is located directly adjacent to the Palliative Care Unit on the second floor of Burnaby Hospital.

The space provides a retreat for patients and their families to enjoy fresh air and some outdoors time in a calm and serene setting.

Minimum donation of $5,000

The minimum donation for a butterfly may be reached through one of the following ways:

  1. Cumulative donations totaling $5,000 or more from family and friends in memory of your loved (e.g. in lieu of flowers).
  2. A single donation of $5,000 or more.

To order a butterfly by making a single contribution, please call 604-431-2881 or click “Order” below.

To inquire about the eligibility of a butterfly based on cumulative donations, please call 604-431-2881 or email [email protected].

Butterfly Ornament Options

Alternatively, for gifts totaling between $1,500 – $4,999, donors may have the opportunity to include your loved one’s name on a palliative recognition plaque just inside the doors from the garden. Call 604-431-2881 or email for details. 

Please allow 4 – 6 weeks for your butterfly to be mounted in the Tranquility Garden. 

All donations are tax-deductible with proceeds benefiting the highest priority needs at Burnaby Hospital, including Palliative Care.
