Deforia Lane shares the healing power of music. Once a budding opera singer, Lane has dedicated her talent to treating hospital patients with music therapy. The results are astonishing. In the presence of Deforia's musical gifts, seriously ill people find new joy and hope. Lane is the first music therapist to receive a grant to study music's therapeutic effects on cancer patients. Thousands of patients have been inspired by her, and her success has spurred hospitals across the nation to launch music therapy programs. "Music and healing are often matters of the human spirit," says Deforia. "because of the nature of my job, I have witnessed more than a few miracles, miracles worth telling and retelling." Music as Medicine is a window into Deforia Lane's world of miracles, where the melody of one person's life has brought healing and strength to many.
