Senior Environmental Scientist Bryan Gammons and his family recently hand-delivered personalized photo pins and kindness rocks to UMass Memorial Medical Center caregivers.

The personalized pins feature a picture of the staff member so patients can see the face of who is caring for them. The pins were made by Bryan and his wife Rebecca Gammons, along with sons, Oliver, 5, and Teddy, 1, who wanted to give back to caregivers in honor of their twin boys, Teddy and Charlie. Charlie passed away one year ago on June 9, 2019, and Bryan felt he needed to do something for others to commemorate Charlie’s life.

To date, Bryan has made more than 300 photo pins and with his family, including Charlie’s grandparents, has painted 300 kindness rocks with notes to uplift spirits. Tighe & Bond is so proud to support Bryan in his mission to give back to our frontline healthcare workers in their quest to provide better patient care.
