Please join us in fundraising for Ryan's Light. Ryan's Light is a 501c3 non profit foundation that provides music therapy to children with cancer in the state of Hawaii. All money we raise stays in Hawaii for children at the two major hospitals on the island. Tripler army medical center and Kapiolani hospital. Exactly what is music therapy you ask? Well its kind music provised by a board certified music therapist to pediatric oncology patients (thats kids with cancer) Ryan's Light was created by his mom and dad after Ryan died from non hodgkins lymphoma at the age of 6 on July 29th 2011. Ryan was a huge lover of music, and it is in music that we now continue to parent Ryan, and make a difference in the lives of children with cancer in Hawaii. Our music therapy is costly however, it is not free....we fund it. We also do a few fundraiser to contiue to fund it, and we need help sometimes to keep it going. It is the first time in the history of Hawaii thta music therapy is being offered to children with cancer in Hawaii. We think thats pretty awesome. We also buy the kiddos ukuleles engraved with a sail boat (our logo) and the words Ryan's light on them...the kids get to keep these. After recieving music therapy (which takes place every week at both hospitals) they then get a custom made glass ukulele bead. The beads are in differnet colors (themes) like a reggae theme, black and white, island theme, etc... and even pink and purple (in honor of HaleyTyrell one of Ryan's friends who is also a child with cancer) Therapy can take place bedside, or in a group but it is always in the hospital. We also organize a team every year in Ryan's honor to raise money for childhood cancer research. If you like the cause, and want to know more please consider joining us and also visti the foundation website at the link here http://www.ryanslight.org/index.html
