From the Chemo Chair: From My Heart to Your Heart

With COVID-19 leading to measures that restrict visitors and promote distance, the Simms/Mann Letter Writing Project was formed to foster greater connection through letter-writing and musical inspiration. We asked our community of patients to send anonymous letters of hope, wisdom, and warmth to those receiving their first day of chemotherapy, as well as a song that they found inspirational throughout their cancer experience. We hope these healing tunes will bring you some comfort, love, and a sense of togetherness.
