Music can be therapeutic The beats rhythms and melodies of songs create

Music can be therapeutic. The beats, rhythms, and melodies of songs create an escape unlike any other, exposing raw emotion and fostering hope. For many wish kids, music is an essential part of their lives, allowing them a chance to escape the pain of treatments for moments at a time. To wish kids, music is a powerful form of medicine, instrumental in their recovery process. And these two wish kids are perfect examples of how a musical wish can impact a child.
