Mission: The services that LifeChronicles provides were inspired by an experience of our founder, Kate Carter. A recently widowed friend of Kate’s was diagnosed with cancer and told she had a short time to live. Kate was concerned that her friend’s three children would lose the memories of their father and mother. This concern inspired Kate to speak to her friend about making a video to deliver messages of love, sharing her stories and passing on advice for the future. Although Kate’s friend passed before they had a chance to tape her, from this experience LifeChronicles was born. Through videotaping individuals and families across the country, LifeChronicles strives to preserve the memory and essence of individuals, to tell the stories that could have gone untold and to solidify the bonds between people. With the help of our youth volunteers, LifeChronicles has served over 500 families and has found a need for our video-recordings in a variety of similar situations.
Target demographics: families heal and connect
Programs: by videotaping an elderly family member or a seriously ill loved one.
