Fremantle Dockers visit Redkite’s Music Therapy Playgroup

 


Fremantle Dockers Redkite Visit May 2016 Redkite ambassadors Tendai Mzungu, Jack Hannath and Nick Suban from the Fremantle Dockers spent yesterday visiting children and young people with cancer at the Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH) in Perth.

 

During their visit the players spent time with young Finlay, Matilda and Riley, and  Music Therapist Louise Miles, playing instruments, singing and listening to music as part of our music therapy program.

 

Following the session, they went out of their way to meet other children and young people in the oncology ward, signing autographs and talking with young patients and their families. The players spent a few hours at the hospital, not leaving until they had spent time with each individual child.

 

Fremantle Dockers Redkite Visit

Music therapy is an integral part of the essential services Redkite offers to children and young people with cancer. Research shows that music therapy can help with pain management and strengthen a child or young person’s ability to cope with the stress of cancer and its treatment.

 

Mzungu, Hannath and Suban plan to continue to visit PMH and take part in our music therapy program every month.
