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

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.

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!
