About Angels Above


In 1996, Sue Horman established Angels Above Charitable Trust. She founded the charity in loving memory of her daughter, Kimberly, who was a patient at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children (MGHfC). As the charity began to grow, Mary Beth Brunelle joined Sue to help manage the growth and development of the charity.

Through Angels Above, together Sue and Mary Beth play a pivotal role in the lives of the children at MGHfC. Focused on individualized patient care, the charity aims to improve the quality of patients' lives immediately, here and now. Angels Above fulfills its goal of bringing smiles to the faces of patients during their stay at Massachusetts General Hospital for Children in many different ways.

Their contributions range from organizing holiday celebrations, birthday parties, end of chemotherapy treatment parties to donating endless amounts of games, movies, art supplies, laptops, PlayStations, and DVD players. Working hand and hand with the Child Life Department, Angels Above strives to help normalize the hospitalization experience for children and families.

For the many children at MGHfC that are critically and chronically ill, Angels Above provides them with special gifts. These gifts include haircuts, in-room manicures and pedicures, massages, and special lunches out in Boston or brought in to their room.

The difference that Angels Above makes at MGHfC is truly beyond words.
