As the holidays approach, we are reminded of the need for compassion in today’s world. For anyone undergoing cancer treatment, whether it is chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant, a cord blood transplant or other innovative treatment, the healing process can be an emotional and physical roller-coaster. Music can help during these difficult times.
Save the Cord Foundation and Mediware, Inc. are proud to announce a special holiday edition in our Share the Science series — a discussion with Crystal Weaver, MA, PLPC, CRC, MT-BC, who will discuss the history of music therapy, therapeutic benefits and common misconceptions, as well as highlights ways cancer patients can benefit from this complimentary therapy during their treatment process.
Join us Thursday, December 14th, 2017 to learn about the concept of music therapy in the medical model and insightful information regarding the benefits of music therapy for individuals diagnosed with cancer throughout the treatment process. Real-world examples will be provided by Crystal Weaver, a board-certified music therapist with more than 14 years of experience providing individual music therapy services to individuals diagnosed with leukemia, lymphoma, and multiple myeloma.
