Mission: The services that LifeChronicles provides were inspired by an experience of our founder, Kate Carter. A recently widowed friend of Kate 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 1,200 families in 38 states and 250 cities who have found a need for our video-recordings in a variety of similar situations.
Results: We are now creating a certification program after requests from major medical and hospice institutions wishing to be trained to provide our experience and expertise so their patients will have a LifeChronicle whenever needed.
Target demographics: families heal and connect
Direct beneficiaries per year: families across the United States.
Geographic areas served: Everywhere
Programs: By videotaping an elderly family member or a seriously ill loved one.
I cannot thank Kate Cater and everyone involved with Life Chronicles enough.She came out to my house and was able to create an amazing video for us. My wife was in the final stages of her fight with brain cancer. The way she interviewed the family and captured that day will never be forgotten. Thanks to all of you from the bottom of my heart.
