The Problem

The Music is Medicine project uses music to uplift seriously-ill children and creates a CD for them and their families with songs they wrote or inspired!

Plan of Action

To start our project, we selected the Hackerman-Patz House. The children there are recovering from limb-lengthening surgeries and the follow-up therapies. After performing a concert for the children and donating instruments to their playroom, we worked one-on-one with the children, who helped to create the original songs as well as the CD artwork. The children were incredibly enthusiastic after receiving their CDs, and they could not believe their efforts and their individualism had resulted in an actual CD they could forever carry with them as a memory to their time spent in the hospital and to their unbelievable strength.

Project Updates

Through the help of the Key Change Grant, we were able to bring Music is Medicine to another facility housing young patients and their families this summer. In the coming weeks we will be producing and recording the songs inspired by these amazing kids and we can't wait to get started!
