Our Story

I started Pass It Down after my mom, Barbara, was diagnosed with early onset dementia at the age of 47. I saw first-hand what it was like to see a family member’s memories slip away and the impact it had on my mom and our family. Pass It Down was founded to help families around the world collect and preserve their memories.
