There are many really wonderful things happening so far this year, and it’s already going too fast! We have gained some incredible new Broadway Hearts members, we’ve made some wonderful friends at The Pediatric Cancer Foundation and we’ve expanded our reach in the city, as well.
We had a visit yesterday at Hassenfeld Children’s Hospital at NYU Langone, that was wonderful beyond measure. We were up in the in-patient playroom, our favorite space, as the kids can come and go from their various treatments and the one’s that aren’t able to leave their rooms, can at least hear the music carrying through the hallways. We had one little girl, a true delight of spirit, who was able to stay for our whole visit and she laughed the most glorious laugh, for the entire hour. She’s not one we will soon forget! We also had a sweet, sweet little boy who was on his way to surgery, he stopped in for a couple of songs before being taken into the OR. Knowing that we were able to send him into surgery with happy endorphins flowing and a song on his lips, is truly the most inspiring of feelings. We are so fortunate to be allowed to be a part of these incredible kid’s lives.
We get to visit The Ronald McDonald House on Saturday! This is a true privilege. We can’t wait to meet and share music with these amazing kids and their families.
Enjoy the snow, if you’re in NYC, and a very Happy Valentine’s Day to all!
