Everyone deserves to have the opportunity to remember special moments with their loved ones. Life can be tough, time moves on and those cherished moments pass albeit never forgotten. The charity McMemory maker aims to provide families who are affected by life limiting illnesses with the equipment they need to create and remember lifelong memories so that they can remember loved ones forever. The charity will also offer suggestions and help in creating and making memories together, as well as leaving very personal touches for loved ones that help a legacy live on.
This charity is set-up in memory of Graeme McRobbie who was a lecturer in Architecture. He was sadly diagnosed with advanced bowel cancer in August 2016 and died in September 2017. He was 36 and left his wife and two young children, aged 3 and 7. Despite his illness Graeme worked hard to create memories including a memory jar, lots of videoing and photos, writing a story and poems for his children, creating a memory box and writing letters and having a gift ready for every significant life event his children will have as they grow up from going to secondary school, higher education, getting married, first home ....., so that he will be part of it. At the funeral #colourforgraeme was introduced and everyone was asked to colour in postcards of significant places to Graeme and his family.
McMemory maker hopes to help any family in difficult situations to create memories that will last a lifetime and help a legacy live on forever.
