7-16-17: Music Therapists: David Knott, Betsy Harman, Evelyn Pinder. www.seattlechildrens.org

Music Therapy is a unique and individualized approach in the health field. And there's likely nothing more touching and heart-warming than the work being done at Children's Hospital in Seattle. The group of 3 music therapists (and these are college certified therapists) include David Knott, Betsy Hartman, and Evelyn Pinder. They combine their talent, their love of music, and their heart for helping children and families dealing with the challenges of health crises. They share some touching stories including one about a young teen girl, and creating her rap song to express dealing with chemo treatments. (I even got to 'play' the bebot!--a music app that helps anyone feel musically accomplished!) And our good friend Dianna Rose in very involved in Music Therapy. www.seattlechildrens.org

Pati Poblete addresses gun violence from her personal place. A longtime Bay Area journalist Pati uses her skill to relate the devastating story--the murder of her 23 year old son, Robby, 5 years ago, and her journey of healing. A Better Place--A Memoir of Peace in the Face of Tragedy is a raw and honest recounting of the tragedy and is balanced with the portrayal of Robby's deep engagement in, and love of life! Pati knows that we each have our own journey of healing but her expression of her path is sure to share ideas with others dealing with tragedy and loss--including a gun buy back program and 'transforming' the weapons into forms of art. www.robbypobletefoundation.org

Wonderland Kids. Michelle Stiller Bradley is the Director of Services and Programs for this highly important non-profit, early-intervention agency. Each month it serves more than 250 families and their children ages birth to three who have special needs, living in north King and south Snohomish counties. Their goal is to help children with developmental delays or disabilities realize their full potential. Included in this number, and continuing to grow, are the numbers of infants born with prenatal substance exposure. Consider this shocking statistic: Every 25 minutes, a baby is born in the U.S. suffering from opioid withdrawal. A new clinic "Hope Rising Clinic" has just opened in collaboration with UW, and will work with infants through age 12. Great need for financial support. A golf tournament happens in August, and a Gala in September. Also volunteers are welcome! Great opportunities for persons looking to potentially work in this field. www.wonderlandkids.org

Kevin Hines is a survivor--of a suicide attempt. At age 18 Kevin jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge. He acknowledges that a number of things happen that are miraculous in terms of his survival. Perhaps the greatest result is that Kevin now dedicates his life to advocacy and education about mental health issues and the great need for more mental health care. At birth, Kevin was a meth baby. He was placed in foster care. Was adopted by a loving family. But the demons in his body as a result of the drugs, plagued him. He comes to his work with incredible passion, understanding, and hope. www.kevinhinesstory.com , www.kmhinesfoundation.org , www.stayalivevideo.com Kevin does his work globally because: Suicide is an epidemic that takes over 800,000 lives globally every year. In the US alone there are one million suicide attempts and over 40,000 deaths by suicide every year. Our US Military is devastatingly impacted with 22 veterans dying everyday by suicide. And it does impact each and every one of us!

Hu Dalconzo is a spiritual-life coach, and author. His most recent book is a novel-- The Awakening: A Transformational Love Story, written together with his son Dean. Because we learn better through stories and parables, Hu uses the book to convey the message of the change we can still make and need to make to preserve life, nature and humanity, on this planet. We must know we need to change, to transform. We can't expect different results if we keep doing things the way we always did. Seeing more women in leadership positions is a testament to this. www.holisticlearningcenter.com/hu-method.html

March of Dimes, March for Babies. Adam and Neesha Bremmeyer tell us of the premature birth of Mila-- born 16 weeks early, weighing just 1 lb. 7 oz. Because of all the work of the March of Dimes, the NICU is a haven for premies, and Mila spent the early weeks of her life there, about 3-1/2 months. Home was in Chelan, and the family crossed the mountains to Seattle regularly to be with their child, putting 7000 or more miles on their vehicles. 13 months later, Mila is thriving and enjoying her young life. The family is grateful, and invites us to the March for Babies. In Seattle it's Saturday, May 4, at Seattle Center, Fisher Pavilion. Register at 8am, or on line anytime! These funds support families, and fund research. Walks also are happening in Tacoma, and in the Everett area. Or join in virtually anytime.
