It's All About the Smiles...and superheroes like Hope! 


Hope was our beautiful KEYS Kids Ambassador at the KEYS Program in 2014-15. Diagnosed with cancer in 2012, she underwent many surgeries, treatment and rough days, never once complaining, and always sharing her beautiful smile to bring smiles to other kids going through the same battle. Hope earned her angel wings in Oct 2014, but her love, spirit and beautiful smile still radiate Hope to all who knew and loved her! 

There are over 10,000 children, like Hope, who are diagnosed with cancer each year in the US.  While survival rates have improved significantly, cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease in children. Current treatments for cancer are both physically and emotionally difficult, with kids spending long periods of time in the hospital, away from home, missing many childhood experiences and significantly impacting a child’s quality of life. 


Our Wish♥   Our wish is for a cure, but until then we are on a mission to improve the quality of life of children battling cancer throughout their battle, celebrating in their victories, lifting them up through the tough days and supporting their families after loss with the comfort, hope and healing that only music can provide.
