The mission of “Thru My Eyes” is to provide free in-home, clinically guided videos for individuals with a life-threatening medical illness, who want to leave legacies for their children or other loved ones, regardless of their financial means.

Thru My Eyes” has been set up in honor of our beloved friend Dede Frontera who passed away in 2010, from a terminal illness all too young. When faced with the news that her third bout of breast cancer metastasized throughout her body, Dede, at age 40, felt that she had so much left to say to her daughter Nicole, then 8. She wanted to offer motherly advice, share memories, and express vital perspectives to her daughter at appropriate times in her daughter’s life as she matures all of which she wanted to deliver in the private comfort of her home. She was also faced with questions about what was developmentally appropriate to share and how best to approach certain topics to an 8 year-old and realized that clinical/professional guidance was necessary. After her search to see if any organization existed to help her came up with no results, the mission of “Thru my Eyes” became clear. Now, a parent’s messages can be delivered periodically to their loved ones as they grow and mature.

We are located in Westchester, NY and service a 50 mile radius. We can also accomodate clients in the state of Vermont. If you are out of our service area we can offer an online option that can be done from anywhere in the world. For more information: Phone: 914-725-1836
