A personal way to honor a loved one or special caregiver

The Helix display symbolizes the Brigham’s DNA and our shared commitment to providing the very best in healthcare. By making a $2,500 gift to support the Brigham and adding your personalized message to the Helix, you can address the needs of our Brigham caregivers and ensure they are supported, recognized, and empowered to continue to provide the excellent and compassionate care that is their legacy.

Your mirror:

  • Provides individuals, families, foundations, or corporations a personal and meaningful way to honor a caregiver or loved one
  • Is available with a gift of $2,500, payable over one or two years
  • Allows you to inscribe a personal message of inspiration on a 5-inch mirror (160 characters max.), using one of three inscription styles

Do you own a donor-advised fund (DAF)? Ask about the flexibility of making a gift through your DAF.

Being part of the Helix display allows us to memorialize our affection for our parents. It’s a way for us to say, ‘We wouldn’t be where we are today without you’.



For all the baby moments in our lives, the Brigham was there for us.

If the nurses weren’t as good as they are, I wouldn’t have had as successful a recovery.

The Helix is a very nice way to recognize a gift. And most of us, we know who we love and who we miss—and who we want to honor.
