ST. JUDE CHILDREN'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL, MIDWEST AFFILIATE (AUGUST 2015)
Twice Upon a String teamed up with Music is the Medicine to buy 8 iPod Touches to donate to St. Jude Midwest for kids to listen to music and take their minds off treatment. Mark Cortesi (co-founder of Music is the Medicine) and I visited St. Jude to deliver our donation.
We received this positive six-month update (February 2016) from Shelley Lee of St. Jude Midwest. "We truly love the iPods! They are a great distraction for the kids. Music is the one medium that truly transfers our patients to a happier time and place. I ask the kids to play a song that brings back a positive memory of a different place and time. When they close their eyes it helps them to imagine that they are there."
