CHILDREN'S CANCER ASSOCIATION
The Children's Cancer Association (CCA) delivers joy-based programming to optimize the emotional health of young patients, resulting in measurable and immediate improvements to well-being.
At the end of 2021, Love Your Melon gifted CCA with $10,000 to help fund their JoyRx Music Program. Music is internationally recognized by neuroscientists, educators, and psychologists as a simple but powerful tool within the healthcare environment, stimulating a wide range of physical, emotional, and social benefits for patients. Trained music specialists deliver music medicine virtually to young patients across the nation, partnering with hospital staff to integrate live music into their existing entertainment systems or through real-time, one-on-one interactions via iPad.
