Welcome to the KEYS Program! 

For more than 25 years, the KEYS Program has been delivering music, hope and smiles to children impacted by cancer and serious illnesses through its award-winning music outreach, family respite day and sibling support programs.

 

In 2019, we are expanding our music therapy services to include "those in need of healing" including; adults who are battling cancer, individuals with autism and disabilities, and Alzheimer's and dementia patients.

 Amelia's Smile Day!

 

****FROM Andrea Maranville:  Sweet Life of a Baker

 

💕There are some moments in life that simply can not be quantified. There are some experiences that are truly SO special and my heart is bursting at the seams and reminding me WHY I am on this path. #everythinghappensforareason 💕😁💕🙏
.
Today, I had the sweetest guest pastry chef in my kitchen, chef Amelia.❤ She is an amazing 8 year old who loves to cook and bake....who is sincere, kind, smart and funny. An amazing 8 year old who also has cancer. Make no mistake though, she has a fire in her and is destined to grow up and do amazing things, including continuing her passion for all things food, I hear her chicken wing dip is delicious! 😋
.
A few months back the head of @thekeysprogram reached out to me asking if I would participate in their "Smile Experience Day" - A day to bring LOTS of SMILES to children with cancer and serious illness. They said a very special girl, Amelia, wanted to spend the day and bake with ME?!😮😁🙏 How honored am I that she chose me! So, after long anticipation, today was the day!!! We baked, we decorated, we laughed, we SMILED!!! 💕 I am forever grateful to the Keys Program for giving both Amelia, her family and ME this very special day. I will treasure this moment forever and my heart is full. #itsallaboutthesmiles
