Making a Memory
Thank you for your interest in Memories for Kids. We are honored to work with your family and look forward to creating a special memory for you that will help you take a break from your cancer diagnosis and have fun together. We review each memory request as quickly as possible and will make every effort to create a special memory or keepsake for your family. Please do not share the application with your children at this time. It’s a fun surprise for your children when the memory is presented to everyone.
To apply for a family memory, fill out the online application form on this page and download the required release forms and physician forms that must be signed and returned to us. If you prefer, you may download a PDF copy of the entire application package to complete in your own time. Once complete, you may return the signed forms to us.

What is included in a travel memory needing accommodations, and how long can I be away?
Travel-related memories needing accommodations last NO MORE THAN 3-4 NIGHTS and ARE NOT ALL-INCLUSIVE. You may be responsible for your own spending money to cover general fees and taxes, gas, souvenirs, tips, meals and other incidentals. We do our best, however, to provide transportation, meals, hotel accommodations, activity passes, etc. If you would like to extend the length of your stay, you may arrange that with Memories for Kids Travel Agent and pay for all related expenses.
