Wings of Hope was established because of Dr. Angela Katz’s face-to-face encounter with death, her survival, and her deep belief of using the gift of her life to serve others.
In 2010, Angela was told she had cancer and was given only nine months to live. She struggled with how to best face what she thought would be the end of her life. There was so much she wanted to do with the life she had left. Even in the midst of this devastating news, Angela continued to nurture her family and create beauty around her. She planted fruit trees in her backyard, and baked gorgeously elaborate cakes for friends and family members.
Against all odds, after a dramatic surgery and multiple rounds of chemo, which resulted in a year of blindness, Angela is now cancer free and her vision has returned. She believes her life is a gift – a gift that inspires her to help those who are sick and in need.
This experience has made Angela uniquely aware of the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of hospice patients and their families. She believes that every life has value, every day is special, and every moment should be cherished. This is why she has created Wings of Hope Hospice.
“Let us be your wings during this difficult time. We are here to bring you hope.”
Dr. Angela Katz
