Audiobiographies for terminally ill parents

Many thanks for your support, which meant we were able to complete the project successfully.
The Hörschatz association gives seriously ill parents the opportunity to accompany their children's lives beyond their own death. With the audio biographies, they can share their experiences and adventures. Support this offer with a donation of CHF 100.

Background

Goal reached - and on we go! Every additional donation helps affected Hörschatz mommies and daddies to leave their voices and messages for their loved ones. Since May 2020, the Hörschatz association has made it possible for terminally ill fathers or mothers to leave a free audio biography for their children. This "audio treasure" offers a unique opportunity to remain alive in the memory of the children. At the same time, for seriously ill people, coming to terms with their own lives is reconciliatory - when death is unavoidable. For the bereaved children, a listening treasure helps them cope with their grief after the death of their parent and accompanies them on their later path to adulthood and adulthood.

Idea

In a listening treasure, terminally ill parents leave their own life stories and experiences to their children, so that their voice remains after their own death. In this way, memories and insights are recorded to accompany the children on their way to adulthood and also in their adult lives. Listening treasures are full of love, life and passion.
For all affected families, this offer should be low-threshold, unbureaucratic and free of charge. The association is dependent on donations in order to have these elaborate audio biographies created by professional audio biographers.
Remo is 35 and seriously ill when he contacts the Hörschatz association: "I have stomach cancer with metastases on my liver. I would like to leave personal messages for my two children (6 and 4). Remo knows that he will die. In order to be able to give his children something to take with them on their journey through life beyond his imminent death, Remo decides to record an audio treasure - a very individual audio biography in which there is room for everything that is important to him. The three-day recordings are upsetting for Remo, but also very valuable: "Looking back on my life was sometimes emotional, but through it also beautiful and liberating."  The result is an almost seven-hour audio treasure trove full of personal stories and loving anecdotes from Remo's rich life as well as big and small formative moments with his family.

Implementation

A listening treasure is as individual as a human life is. Each participant decides for him- or herself which chapters of life are to be opened. There are no limits to the joy of storytelling, imagination and love. Divided into individual chapters, one's own life in retrospect becomes a cornucopia of experiences. An audio treasure offers space for anecdotes, experiences, songs, favourite recipes, milestones, insights and perspectives.
When we visit Remo at his home in March 2021 shortly after a hospital stay, he blossoms in his stories and memories. Many beautiful Swiss songs flow into his listening treasure. Out of this comes a wonderful legacy to his two children. "Especially in my case, where the children are still so small, this is mega beautiful and important. I hope this listening treasure will help my children with the grieving process and remembering." By sharing his story and excerpts from his listening treasure publicly, Remo wants to help other families in a similar situation benefit from the listening treasure offer. "I want to give something minimal back - as a thank you for this great gift."
People who want to tell their story and have it recorded are accompanied by experienced journalists with palliative background knowledge. These audiobiographers are commissioned by the Hörschatz Association with the implementation of the Hörschatz audiobiography. Depending on the length of the recording, the production of an audio treasure amounts to CHF 1,200 to CHF 9,600 (from 1h to around 15h audio treasure duration). The length of the recordings depends on the needs and strengths of the participants. The participants meet for a maximum of 3 days for the recordings. Afterwards, post-production and editing takes place to create an audio treasure with music of the participants' choice. The audiobiographers are compensated for their work by Verein Hörschatz.
