The MELODIC CARING PROJECT (MCP) is a registered 501(c)3 Non-Profit which aims to bridge the gap between music, technology and patients battling serious illness by streaming LIVE personal concerts to kids and teens in the hospital. MCP embraces the medically proven healing properties of music to alleviate pain, reduce anxiety and aid in the overall wellness and wellbeing of the patient.
Unlike other complimentary and alternative medicine (CAM) programs, the MELODIC CARING PROJECT’S model meets a real and pressing need in the market offering ease, accessibility, comfort and encouragement to those suffering from serious illness or injury, especially those quarantined and/or suffering from immunodeficiency.
The MELODIC CARING PROJECT is about one artist [or band] playing a LIVE and extremely personal concert for a select group of patients. That performance is filmed and streamed LIVE directly to the patients hospital bed [or home] where they can watch the show in the comfort and anonymity of their own room. Through a live-chat feature on the Ustream page, patients can chat throughout the concert with friends, family and outside supporters sending real-time messages of love and encouragement, creating a true sense of community and support. This unique service is free to the patient and free to the hospital.
