MyMusicRx is the flagship program of the Children’s Cancer Association (CCA) who believes that joy matters and #MusicHeals. Our in-hospital program includes bedside sing-a-longs led by trained music specialists, instrument and iPad lending from mobile music carts, and live concerts from national recording artists.
MyMusicRx.org extends the bedside experience online, and invites kids facing cancer and other serious illnesses to feel the music and feel better by exploring exclusive artist greetings, concerts, music lessons, digital instruments and games - anytime, anywhere.

SongRxs are short interviews and performances that introduce kids to the music artists love most. We film these, and all of our exclusive content, at soundchecks, radio stations, concert halls, and leading festivals like SXSW, Sasquatch, Newport Folk and FYF.
MyMusicRx also hosts anchor events like Bedstock, the world’s first and only in-bed music festival, and the You Who Rock Show for Kids, a live music variety show created by visual artist Seann McKeel and Chris Funk of The Decemberists. Performances are posted on MyMusicRx.org and shared on our socials, connecting kids, artists, and thousands of music fans of all ages to the healing power of music.
MyMusicRx.org reaches thousands of kids and teens in pediatric hospitals across the country with topical music content that makes a difference. Medical research shows music can play a powerful role in their daily experience, with measurable benefits that are social, emotional, and physiological. These include reduced heart rate and blood pressure; relief from stress, depression, anxiety, and sleeplessness; better pain management, and improved mood and relaxation.
