Cancer patients are often stuck in the hospital for weeks and even months at a time. When I started volunteering to sing for cancer patients at a local hospital, I was overwhelmed by the need for a more enriched healing environment. The patients I work with need comfort, they need distraction from their pain, and they need hope. When I walk into their hospital room and sing for them they feel comforted, gratefully distracted, and hopeful. Music and art provide a respite for hurting souls. The need is so great and I want to do more to help them by bringing in more artists to work with patients.
