Music as Medicine

Jaidah
Jaidah

A bright-eyed lover of music, Jaidah’s will to fight and winning personality have carried her through many medical procedures.  At the age of two, she was diagnosed with a potentially life-threatening condition which causes the fibrous sutures in an infant skull to prematurely fuse.

The MusicRx program has made a huge impact on Jaidah and her family during these difficult treatments. Her famous smile lights up the room as she plays the ukulele and sings her favorite songs with CCA’s MusicRx team.

CCA’s award-winning MusicRx program, comprised of music specialists and highly trained volunteers, infuses hospitals with the healing power of music by delivering bedside therapeutic music medicine and staging impromptu hallway performances. MusicRx’s exclusive magical mobile music cart is custom-designed to hold a lending library of nearly 100 specialized instruments, interactive songwriting and recording technology, a karaoke machine, and an iPod doc loaded with music for every age.

Last year, CCA’s MusicRx program brought joy to more than 1,900 children and teens and more than 17,000 were touched by music medicine. CCA also launched a new digital medicine program, MyMusicRx, which delivers the healing power of music to kids worldwide through the MyMusicRx.org website.

With your generous donation we can grow this program and spread the healing joy of music to more children, teens and families.
