Songs of Love is a unique and valuable service providing the medicine of music for children, their families and communities. The organization's staff amazes me with their commitment to provide this free for these challenged kids and i am honored to be involved. The other testimonies posted here describe better than I could what it's worth to the families and why any support you can provide to Songs of Love is well worthwhile.

Our son Jordan is a severe asthmatic, after a lenghty ICU admission, he was given a series of tests to help identify any additional illnesses. In 2007, at age 12 he was diagnoised with atypical cystic fibrosis, and typically is hospitalized 3-4 times a year, usually from 9 to 14 days. Songs of Love produced a cd for him and it included all of his friends and family. Jordan was very happy to receive it, and it made me cry to know how special this organization could be. I'm truly impressed with the service they provide.

Using songs to aide in the healing and comforting of children this organizatio​n is an organizatio​n that I have grown to love. Each song is unique and the happiness it brings a sick children is immeasurabl​e. We continue to listen to Felicia's song everyday, take a minute and watch along to a video my friend made for us. http://www.​youtube.com​/watch?v=VZ​6iWMPSVx0 This songs really made Felicia feel special during all her long hospital visit. Thank you Songs of Love. And if you know an organizatio​n that would like to donate or make a song for a child, Songs of Love will let you participate. What an amazing feeling that would be, knowing that you brought a smile to sick child's face and helped heal their soul

I'll never forget the look of sheer joy on my daughter Mya's face when she heard her 'song of love" for the first time. She shared it immediately with all her friends. Mya received her song while battling Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma at 5 years old. Since that time, she was diagnosed with secondary Acute Myloid Leukemia (at 7 years old) and received a Stem Cell Transplant. I relish her CD and even order the ring tone for my cell phone. She is doing very well now, but it hasn't stopped us from listening to her song over and over again....Much Love to this entire organization. You truly have made a positive and lasting effect on my daughter and our whole family. Her story: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/myaterry

My three year old was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in 2006, a mere 4 short weeks from when I nearly died giving birth to Our third child. We were in a tailspin and Songs of Love, was our line to happiness. They went above and beyond our expectations in writing a song for Nate. He loves his song so much, that at his end of chemo party, it was played. It brought back so many memories, good and bad, that We had been through. Thank you so much for taking the time to care so much about my child. It really shows in the work that is put into each and every song.

My beautiful daughter, Grace, was diagnosed with kidney cancer at 4 1/2. Treatment was so much to ask of a little girl. While many, many things were hard, one of the hardest for my daughter was losing her long blond hair. She lost some of her self-esteem as children would ask her if she was a girl or a boy. She grew up too fast and suffered through things most adults never think about. Her sweet Song of Love captured her childlike wishes and her dreams and set them to music. It's a beautiful testiment to her spirit. The most amazing thing is that it was created by people that don't actually know her. Yet, it was absolutely spot on. Grace laughed and danced to her song as she listened to it over and over again. This awesome organization has a beautiful heart to bring such joy to children who suffer. Grace is 8 now and doing really well. We will have her Song of Love to always remind us of all the things we have to be thankful for.

My daughter Caitlin was 5 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer. Her life went from getting used to the adjustment of starting kindergarten to having to have surgeries and stay at a hospital for weeks at a time. Most of the time she could not have guests because her immune system was down so low. She felt terrible most of the time. When she received her CD from Songs of Love she thought it was pretty cool that her name was on the outside, but then when she listened to it her eyes lit right up. She just kept saying "mom, this song is about me! How did they do this?" She laughed and smiled, and I cried with joy. It was so great to see her smiling like that again. Caitlin has listened to that CD so many times I am surprised it still works. The people at Songs of Love are truly amazing and have definitely touched the life of our family and I know many, many other children out there who need the light brought back into their eyes. Thank you so much for all you do!!

My daughter is three years old. She has a very rare vascular anomaly Multifocal Lymphangioendotheliomatosis with Thrombocytopenia (MLT) that causes massive hemorrhaging in her GI tract. She has been in the hospital well over a year of her life. We are currently still in and out of the hospital all the time. We received her song in June 2009. The first time she heard it, she was looking around the hospital room like “who just said my name”. She was laughing and dancing hearing a song all about her and the things she loves. She dances & tries to sing her song, so precious. If only I could express enough the joy in our heart that her song gives us! We listen to her song all the time. Kerry Clark did an amazing job capturing her personality. Songs of Love is an amazing organization.

Imagine you are a child with cancer and all of your main joys have been taken away. Meaning school and outings could not be done while on heavy chemo. Your an outgoing 8 year old girl who loves to socialize and keep busy. Now busy is taking chemotherapy drugs on your clinic visits that are sometimes four days a week. We are talking about my little girl here. Now imagine getting a CD that is about you and your favorite things. It means people out there are thinking about you and they do not even know you. "It makes me feel like a movie star." This is what Kayla said when she got her Songs of Love Song.

Our 4-year old daughter has an autism spectrum disorder. She enjoys music very much, so we requested a "Song of Love" for her. It was so heartwarming to see her reaction when she heard her name in her song for the first time. The musician who created our daughter's song did a beautiful job and really captured her personality in the lyrics she wrote. Our daughter loves music, anyway, but it is all the more special to have a song that mentions her name throughout it along with her favorite things. Every time we play it, we get an instant smile from our daughter - she definitely knows this is her song! Although she isn't able to sing and only has a vocabulary of a few words, she gets very excited listening to her song and often dances to it. What a special gift from the Songs of Love organization that creates such joy in the life of a child who has a severe disability!
