Striking A Notable Difference In Healthcare Since 2002

Soul Food

The mother of this young female patient opened the door as I paused outside.  She went to sit next to her daughter as I played.  The patient watched and smiled as she fought tears, and finally she gave way and began to cry.  Her mother hugged her, and the patient finally appeared to find release through the music.  I played several songs, ending with “Over the Rainbow.”  That one made her smile as her mother sang the words to her.  She thanked me when I finished and said, “That was good for my soul.”
