Art of Courage


2019 The Art of Courage Wall

Every day outpatients make their way up to the Third Floor at BUH to go to their appointments at the Chemotherapy Department to receive their intravenous chemotherapy medication, to the Dialysis Unit to have their three to six hour renal dialysis treatment, to the Cardiac Stress Testing Room to have their ECGs completed while performing a strenuous activity, and to the Pre-Operative Department to learn of their surgical procedure and what they must do prior to their surgery.  Imagine the trepidation and anxiety these people and their families must feel as they go to these appointments.  Some of you reading this can probably personally attest to this.  BUH Foundation and Warne Photography have partnered to offer inspiration and motivation to these outpatients through the “Art of Courage” wall, a prominent wall that all these patients must pass by as they go to the various departments. 

Warne & Paula Noyce of Warne Photography have donated their talent and have captured three most beautiful images with their camera.  These have been put to canvas and will hang on the wall for one year.  As patients pass these amazing images on their way to their worrying appointments, we believe that it will offer them encouragement and incentive for hope.  What a powerful thing of which to be a part.

The 2019 "Art of Courage" wall has been sponsored by David & Barbara Dekker.  "Don't be defined by life's challenges.  Be strong & courageous."  In Loving Memory of Ross & Joan Kingdon, Harry & Chris Dekker, Harrison Dekker and Elaine Miller.

Proceeds from from the 2019 "Art of Courage" wall will support "We Want to...Catch It! Stop It! Treat It!" capital campaign to purchase a new mammography unit for Medical Imaging at BUH.

The "Art of Courage" wall will be an annual fundraising event with a new theme every year.  BUH Foundation is grateful to dancers, Emilia Bacchetto, Jacy Lloyd and Nic Turuk for their genius of movement that portrays courage, perseverance and tenacity.

If you wish to view the "Art of Couarge" wall, please stop by the Foundation office in the Main Lobby at BUH or call, 306-446-6652.

Sponsorship for the 2020 "Art of Courage" wall will be a part of the live auction event during the Formal Evening of Festival of Trees in December.  Tickets will be available to attend this evening, or contact the Foundation office to submit a proxy bid.

Sponsorship of the "Art of Courage" wall means we can continue to enrich patient care at BUH and Battlefords Region Home Care through the purchase of technologically advanced medical equipment.  Your donation stays and assists your family and friends in The Battlefords and surrounding area.

 **The canvases remain the property of Warne Noyce and BUH Foundation.**   

We are grateful to Warne Photography for their kind assistance and support.
