“In the summer of 2006, our 3-year-old son fell seriously ill…”
Doctors at the Children’s Hospital ER discovered a large brain tumour, and our son underwent two major surgeries in the following weeks to remove it. To our great relief the tumour was benign and our son has since made a full recovery. The neurosurgeons, nurses, and staff at the Children’s Hospital who took care of our son in those trying times and those who have followed him since are all heroes.
It gives us an immense sense of pride and satisfaction to be able to give something back to the Hospital through volunteering our time and talents to Becket Players. When we see our son playing happily with his brothers and friends, or sleeping soundly in his bed, we’re reminded of what the Hospital has done for him and countless others, that their work is never done, and how much they need and deserve the support they get from organizations like the Becket Players.

“Music Therapy is one of the many projects generously funded by the Becket Players at The Montreal Children’s Hospital. Thank you Becket Players.”
– The Montreal Children’s Foundation
Mark can’t talk. Music therapy helps him to communicate his inner world through musical activities. He can also feel more in control when he chooses instruments to play or songs he wants to listen to. It also allows him the opportunity to share a pleasant activity in his room.
Brenda is a teenager who suddenly became gravely ill. Music helps her to express intense feelings by writing lyrics to music and by playing various instruments.
Matthew is a baby who has been at the hospital since birth. He moves to the rhythm of music and plays on the tambourine with a small stick. He smiles and interacts with others even though he is unable to speak.
