Saving lives through
the power of music.
healing through music
When Music Therapy is used in childhood cancer it aims to stimulate communication as well as reduce symptoms associated with treatment such as pain, anxiety, mood disturbance and depression. It can also help children better cope with hospitalization and rehabilitation.
the hard truth about pediatric cancer…
Every year, more than 15,000 children are diagnosed with cancer.
Of those diagnosed, 12% do not survive.
The average age at diagnosis is six.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in children (after accidents).
60% of children who survive cancer suffer late effects such as infertility, heart failure and secondary cancers.
Together, we can make a difference!
