Music therapy 'gives hope' to Sacramento cancer patients

Cancer patients at Sutter Cancer Center in Sacramento are getting help with healing, thanks to a music therapy program that is bringing new light into their lives. "We are in a really sacred space. And music can provide a lot of room for expression. But it can also make people feel incredibly vulnerable," Pavis said. "There might be someone who is really holding back from processing a certain emotion, and a certain song lyric is going to trigger that. So, we're there in that moment to be a therapeutic presence." McConnell Music Therapists, like Sarah Pavis, will play music for patients while they are undergoing chemotherapy and other treatments. The patients can sing along or just listen.
