On Thursday, March 28, 2019, KEXP presented Music Heals: Beyond Cancer, a day of programming dedicated to the power of music and the part it plays for those facing cancer. John Richards, Cheryl Waters, and Kevin Cole read stories shared with us by members of our community and featured songs that helped them through the healing process either emotionally or physically. 

Thank you to everyone in the KEXP community who emailed to share their stories with each other.

Check out resources, articles, and interviews from 2019 and previous below.
