“The Dee Dee Jackson Foundation (DDJF) proudly supports Calvary Hospital’s healing mission through music therapy. This shared mission between DDJF and Calvary Hospital is the belief in music’s profound ability to provide solace, grace, and resilience. DDJF’s goal is to shine a light on the negative impact of grief. Our collaboration with Calvary Hospital expands our reach, allowing us to offer music therapy not only to bereaved children but also to their families. Through this partnership, we aim to make a meaningful difference in their lives.”
