“Sonia told us when we arrived at the cancer center that one of the children, a 4 year old boy, was in a bad mood and might not want to participate. As it turned out, he was the most enthusiastic participant of the bunch! When the music started, his face lit up, he didn’t stop smiling or jumping up and down for the entire time he was there! He clearly loved being able to dance and play along on the percussion instruments with the musicians. As his mom said, “he came in in a bad mood and he danced out”.
In our subsequent workshops, this same little boy would run up to the artists and begin dancing, with a big smile on his face, as soon as he saw them.”
Update: this beautiful little boy is now in remission.
