As a volunteer as well as a Board Member, I am honored to be associated with this great organization. The videos produced are priceless to the families who have lost loved ones. Being involved with many tapings has been a profound and life-changing experience.

Although I am a board member of LifeChronicles, my experience as a volunteer is what makes me so passionate about this organization. For over a decade, I have volunteered with people who are faced with life-threatening illnesses or are at the end of their lives, but being part of the video tapings has taken me to a new level of compassion and understanding. I am so inspired by how these people respond to their situation with such dignity and grace. Being able to tell their life story and knowing that it will be preserved for future generations is a very healing process for the people who receive this priceless service. I feel so honored to be part of this amazing organization!

I have served on the board of Life Chronicles for about 5 years now. I have had the honor and privilege to assist in numerous taping's. It has been a remarkable and rewarding experience.

I lost my wife Lisa in 1998 to breast cancer, she was only 40. Our children were 6 & 10 at the
time. Here it is 2013, they are now 22 & 25. Most of their memories now are supported by photographs. I wish I was able to pop in a DVD and listen to the message Lisa spoke to us before she passed. Only I can remember her voice, laughter, thoughts of the life she wanted for me and all of her family and friends. I would love to hear her voice again and be able to share it with those who loved her too!

I became involved with LifeChronicles nearly 14 years ago when founder, Kate Carter shared her vision of creating an organization that would help those who were dying to leave messages to family members and friends that they were leaving behind. I have been a volunteer and experienced first hand, the power of what LifeChronicles provides. On a daily basis LifeChronicles is contacted to help people as they face one of their greatest challenges of their lives--transitioning out of life and making sure that the memory of them, and their love for the most important people in their lives is captured. LifeChronicles provides a service and a gift to people that is timeless. The therapeutic value is tremendous for those who are taped and those who are left behind. When someone is inspired to give back to their community they want to know that their contribution will have an impact and their funds will be used wisely. I know that this is the case with LifeChronicles.

As the founder of LifeChronicles, what I can tell you about LifeChronicles that matters most is...the families we serve make it clear to us each day how important a LifeChronicles video is to them. They tell us it is precious, priceless and one of the most important things they own. They realize now, even though the loved one they have lost may not have been sick when we taped them, that this video is a gift that will be passed along from generation to generation. They know they will never have to worry about forgetting the sight and sound of them and just what it was about them that was so special. And the filmings are often a source of healing for the families that continues long after they sat down and spoke the word they wanted to be remembered. One of the greatest gifts from this work is that student volunteers are forever powerfully and profoundly enriched by their experiences with the people we film.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

tapings of people I never met before as well as people I have known and loved for many years.

LifeChronicles is an organization that captures the essence of the incredible people that you and I see everyday. But, instead of just passing them by, we get to acknowledge what they are about. LifeChronicles, captures the stories and memories of those who we could learn from everyday who fight with the unexpected experiences and struggles in life. LifeChronicles listens, sees, acknowledges, captures, grips the heart, finds the inner beauty, fosters the growth and well-being of every human. The last thing on this earth that LifeChronicles will do is take advantage of a life because through watching the over 600 people that they have taped they have learned what it truly means to value the time that we all have on this earth. Whether it's learning about someone in a 2 hour video or getting to be in their presence with them for 2 hours, I have learned that time is precious and it’s the one thing that is with us the most throughout our life but, much like everything else in life it runs out. LifeChronicles gives that priceless gift to those who struggle ever single day back to their families and loved ones. It's the one thing that I know my family would want most of if I was terminally ill, and only had some time left to live. I conclude my review with saying that LifeChronicles gives time back to those who don't have much of it left when they hear in those few minutes in a room with a doctor that they are diagnosed with a terminal illness that could take years away from their life. What would you say?

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

A profound way. It's an organization that helps so many in their paths of life. Every life is different and it helps those who don't have much time left to tell their families and loved ones help much they love them when they can no longer tell them
