“Music was as big a part of my treatment as chemo, radiation and surgery. It was my support, my escape, my motivation, my celebration and in my deepest darkest moments my closest friend. It helped. It still helps…” – Allison W. Gryphon, diagnosed with stage 3a breast cancer in 2011

“We want every cancer fighter to know that they can ask their doctors to play music for them in appointments, in scans and going into surgery. We want medical facilities to make music a standard part of their set up. We’d love to see the question, “Would You Like Music and What Type of Music Would You Like Playing During Treatment?” to be on every doctors office questionnaire.”
