The Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute has Won a Jeffrey Frank Wacks Music Therapy Program Grant

Clicking your mouse may not be the same thing as clicking your heels three times, but it’s brought the Technicolor wonder of music to the patients who seek care at the Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute. Thanks to everyone who voted for the cancer institute to receive the Jeffrey Frank Wacks Music Therapy Program grant – which is funded by the LIVESTRONG Foundation’s Community Impact Program – the cancer institute will be awarded $15,600 to support a certified music therapist who can visit with patients for 10 hours a week, for 48 weeks; and to purchase any additional supplies. LIVESTRONG Foundation 2-Color PMS

The cancer institute was one of only 13 organizations to receive the music therapy grant. Finalists for the grant were determined through an online voting campaign that accumulated over 100,000 votes over an 18-day period (March 24-April 11). People throughout the Baltimore community and beyond voted for the cancer institute, shared the link on Facebook and Tweeted their support. Because of their compassion, patients from all walks of life will have access to music therapies that have been shown to lower stress and pain levels while boosting a sense of calm and well-being.

The Alvin & Lois Lapidus Cancer Institute has always used complementary care, such as art and massage therapies, to help patients relax and heal.

  • It was an indoor beach party at the annual reunion of #SinaiHospital’s Jennifer Gandel Kachura Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (#NICU). Hundreds of people came together with NICU #caregivers last weekend to enjoy face painting, leis, food and toys. Above all, they celebrated how much each graduate has grown since last year’s reunion. Thank you to all who participated and to the fantastic #doctors, #nurses and other caregivers who attend to Sinai's littlest #patients day in and day out! #event #reunion #healthcare #Maryland #LifeBridgeHealth
