Healing Lives Through Repurposed Music

Music Heals is a non-profit organization in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, and it is helping bring music to people in hospitals. The organization refurbishes old, donated MP3 players and donates them to music therapists, who then use them as part of their services to people healing from cancer, emergency situations, and any other reason to be in a hospital. Old CDs and DVDs are also donated and distributed through the program, according to a story by CTV News. A mobile music studio is also part of the services provided by Music Heals, allowing patients to record their own music compositions. Read more here: 'iPod Pharmacy' a boon for local music therapists
