WELCOME

Welcome to the Embers of Love website.  We are a small family run brand located in the prairies of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.  

 

The sole intention behind Embers of Love is to create a platform where we can acknowledge and bring to light the lifelong medical journeys that most families face when themselves or a loved one is diagnosed with a congenital heart defect (CHD) in Canada.

 

When a baby is diagnosed with a CHD in Canada they will be sent to one of the three referring centers in Alberta, Saskatchewan, or Manitoba, depending on their location.  From there they are sent to the BC Children's Hospital in Vancouver or the Stollery Children's Hospital in Edmonton based on their diagnosis.

 

This often means family's must leave their home and travel out of province for an unknown amount of time with limited funds provided to them by one of the sponsoring agencies.  It is common for families to stay in hotels for weeks at a time if no other accommodations are available.  Family's are traveling from their sleeping accommodations to the hospital on a day-to-day basis to be with their loved one.  

 

Fortunately, there are organizations in place that support this financially, however, not all costs are covered and the price of living away from home adds up quicker than we would imagine.  Along with the mental and emotional stress that is involved with having a child in the hospital, the added stress of traveling to a new province can take its toll. 

 

Our goal at Embers of Love is to provide support to heart warrior family's and the organizations that stand behind them throughout their medical journey by spreading awareness to the public and making a monetary donation under Emberly's name to one of the supporting organizations each year.
