My print belongs to my dad, Tony. He is my best friend and my favourite person. Heartbreakingly, in early 2020 he was diagnosed with Bulbar onset, Motor Neuron Disease. So much of who I am and what I aspire to be is because of my Dad. Watching him become so unwell has been incredibly hard for my family and I, but we feel so proud to love and be loved by a man that has had such an impact on not just our lives but all of those that know him.
Charlotte Agostino was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in 2019 when she was just 16 years old. She tragically passed away on the morning April 5th 2021, but before she passed, she secretly arranged to have her fingerprint made into a necklace as a surprise for her sister Sophie. We were so touched by the love Charlotte and Sophie shared and that we were able to capture a little piece of Charlotte for Sophie to keep forever.
When Cass’s son Jack was diagnosed with an extremely rare form of cancer in his eye at just one year of age, it became really important for Cass to have a little piece of Jack with her at all times. As we approach The Good Friday Children’s Appeal we wanted to highlight Cass’s story, the struggles experienced by families with sick children all over Australia and how a little kindness from strangers can go a long way.
We were honoured to create the most amazing Impression wedding bands for Pete and Matt for their surprise wedding ceremony in March 2021. We chatted to them about their story and how they came about making these special rings.
The story behind the Fingerprints started when I was 36 weeks pregnant with my daughter Halle. I experienced a health issue that resulted in an early delivery and an unwell newborn. Halle spent six long and incredibly stressful weeks in Melbourne’s Royal Children’s Hospital before being able to come home.
