What CMF is All About
Our hearts ache when we see sick children, especially those suffering from severe chronic or terminal diseases. While doctors use medications to treat the symptoms, music can provide healing – both for body and soul. Engaging children in music making reduces pain, elevates the spirit and frequently, provides hope. The CMF is dedicated exactly to that.
We bring music instruments and provide music therapy to children and young adults who suffer from chronic conditions and life-altering illnesses across the land. We bring music to their life – in the hospital, at their home and regardless of their ability to pay – so it may help in their healing. We see the difference music makes, every day and for every child.
We believe in the power of music. But we need data to evaluate and support our claims. We are committed to research and constantly engage in work that measures the impact of music on children and on the healing process.
We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization who works primarily through volunteers and donations. We would like you to become a partner, improving this world one child at a time.
