I was recently published in the Detroit Jewish News, March 26 edition. I wrote about the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Center’s Jeffrey Frank Wacks Music Therapy Program, which takes place at Karmanos’ main hospital and its Farmington Hills facility. The article features a husband of a patient, our talented music therapist Sayako Head and our wonderful oncology social worker Kathleen Hardy.
The program ends in June and Karmanos is looking for different funding sources to keep the program up and running. Since it was established last summer, it has helped approximately 150 patients and their families.
Music is definitely one of the ways I find comfort. I just put on Emmylou Harris and something about her voice soothes me.

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all of my friends and readers!

Liz, I am spending today and spent yesterday with an old (young) friend now under the care of Karmanos. They have accepted her into a clinical trial. Music has been very important to her in this trying time, along with meditation.
I am patiently waiting for the article to upload so I can read it. Thank-you.
Thanks for your comments, Mary Ellen. Let me know if you’re not able to see the article. I can send it to you. Good luck to your friend!
