Changing the Spirit Of The Room

Meet Avi, a tough teen in New York who is battling cancer. His mother, Honey, was with him in at Memorial Sloan Kettering Pediatrics for a typical visit when our volunteers happen to be on site going room to room playing for patients.

What happened next made such a lasting impression on the two of them, Honey was inspired to share her #MOCMoment.

Watch the video below to hear what Honey had to say!


Since then, Avi has been visited by MOC volunteers quite often! Check out what he had to say when our volunteers Sterling Champion and Alexis Babini stopped by:

Spending a day in the hospital isn’t always the easiest, even more so when battling pediatric cancer. But when our volunteers stop by, something truly powerful can happen. Thanks, Honey and Avi, for sharing your story!

Have you been visited by one of our volunteer musicians? Tell us all about it! We can’t wait to hear how our volunteers helped deliver the healing power of music.
