Through your generosity, music therapy can be one of the therapies provided to children after brain surgery. Music has a powerful effect on the brain.
"Music therapy has been an invaluable tool with many of our rehabilitation patients. There is no question that the relationship of music and medicine will blossom because of the advent of previously unavailable techniques that can now show the effects of music."
-Mathew Lee, Acting Director, Rusk Institute, NY. JOIN OUR EFFORTS

We want to know what hope looks like to a teenager. We want to know what image a teen would capture when he/she reflects on character traits such as determination, resiliency, trust, or courage.

The creation of Through Our Eyes? will empower teens by giving them an opportunity to share their voices through the power of images with a world that needs inspiration. Using the lens of their cameras, teens will capture images as symbols for the qualities and character traits noted in our YGR print.
