Meet a Music Therapist: Amy Love

Amy Love, a music therapist in St. Jude Child Life, loves giving her patients an outlet for expression. "Music can provide an opportunity to just forget about illness for a little while," she says. "A patient can be lying in bed with the lights off, and by the end, we're getting up, we're moving, the lights are on. It's just incredible to see how healing music can be."
