What is an Angel?
An angel is a buddy who who looks after someone else during the period of their
surgery. Maintaining contact and offering support during this period is
important. Angels play a vital role of relaying information back and
forth between the person and their friends on the internet.
Are there specific duties of an angel?
The role is an informal one, but two tasks are:
1. Post updates to the person's surgery status page
2. If the person approves, print their card from the web site and fax
it to them while they are in the hospital. The best way to do this is often to fax
it to their surgeon's office for the surgeon to deliver to them. Part of the
reason for assigning angels is so that surgeon's offices don't receive multiple
copies of the same messages to relay.
Who decides who angels are?
Only you can decide who your angel will be.
How can I become an Angel?
Look at the list of people on the surgery dates page. Those people who don't have a red
dot by their name don't have an angel. You can ask such people if they would like
an angel. If they are interested, then have them go into their profile and list
you as their angel.
How can I get an Angel?
Do the above step the other way around. As soon as you find someone interested in
being your angel, list them on your profile.
