Here’s your opportunity to share your “Words of Wisdom” with yourself or your loved ones. Through our Words of Wisdom video you can:

  • Impart your words of wisdom to loved ones.
  • Share funny memories about times gone by that you recall and others may have forgotten.
  • Build a bridge to mend old wounds and start anew.
  • Give yourself words of encouragement (a great way to motivate yourself, especially if you’re about to undergo treatment).
  • You can use it as a way to document your journey; witness your perseverance, your strength, and your hopes for the future.

No matter the reason, Words of Wisdom video is your creation.

Contact us to schedule a time when we can sit together and video tape.

Videos are limited to cancer patients and their families, or treasured friends. This would also be a great encouragement created by close friends just for you.

Frequently asked questions:

What is the length of the video/DVD?
Approximately 30 minutes.

What is the cost for the video/DVD?
It is FREE for cancer patients. Most recording studios charge over $300 an hour. We welcome donations to enable us to provide this service to as many cancer patients as possible.

Where is the video filmed? Can you travel to us, if we’re not able to travel to the video location?
The video is filmed on Staten Island. Special provisions can be made for home or hospital bound cancer patients; however travel expenses and time will need to be covered if outside Staten Island.

Who will film the video?
Our staff is comprised of individuals familiar with video recordings and production of our television show. We are not “professional” film makers. Recordings are conducted by our volunteer staff who have themselves undergone treatment for breast cancer or another cancer diagnoses. Dr. Charley also conducts some of the recordings as she understands what it’s like to be diagnosed with cancer and the need to share a special message of love with those we treasure.

Can this video be used as a legal will?
No. However, you can request it be seen when your Last Will and Testament is read.

Can this video be used as a “good-bye” letter to loved ones?
We do not view this video as a “good-bye” letter to loved ones. In fact, it is a beautiful way to affirm your love and impart some words of wisdom to them and yourself. It is also a tremendous gift for YOURSELF to share your hopes for the future. You can view it whenever you wish to encourage yourself and gain a little extra courage and encouragement.
