Feeling lost and don't know what all of this is about?


Introduction

Cancer treatment may be painful and may involve long periods of hospitalization and time spent in isolation. Both patients and their families are placed under enormous stress and often have to cope with feelings of helplessness and uncertainty. The psychological effects of cancer on patients and their families are overwhelming and may lead to hopelessness and despair. It is important that patients and their loved ones learn relaxation and stress management techniques. One no-cost method, proven to have a great effect on patients' improved health and wellbeing, is listening to music.

As music affects our thoughts, feelings and behavior, it can have a positive, soothing effect on our health and that of cancer patients and their families. Rhythm is known to affect our bodies in such a way that our pulse and respiration are in time with the music's beat. Listening to a song can have a tangible effect on various parts of the brain, with studies showing that music can help relieve pain and anxiety and improve a patient's quality of life. It has the power to move us and stir our emotions positively and certain pieces of music can affect us in deeply personal ways.

Talal Abu Al Ragheb’s Initiative to Help Out Cancer patient

Talal’s initiative attracted many people, musicians, singers and cancer patient relatives in addition to a individual people due to the need for creating a passionate atmosphere around cancer patients and remind the other healthy people of their role to contribute in defeating this disease by spreading love and hope to stand up against the second fatal disease in Jordan.

This initiative is to show that joining a movement to defeat disease  is not always about donating money, it’s all about being aware that we have different roles in our life that can change and improve the situation if each one of us believed that they can something even if it was a little thing.


Our Goal:

To make a difference in the lives of people who are suffering from cancer or who have been touched by the disease in some way. People who are showing signs of losing hope or giving up on the fight. We want to provide hope and support and be a positive influence in their lives.

Initiative Funding

Your fundraising/ sponsorship will pay for the production of the song and video. Together, we will bring hope to patients and their families, raise awareness of a life-threatening disease and raise funds to combat the effects of cancer on people's lives.

Music for Hope – Concept overview

As part of the international effort to fight cancer, Talal Abu Al Ragheb is proposing to produce a song with a group of Jordanian singers, relaying a story of hope and optimism; using TV, radio and social media. The project will be completed within two months of fundraising and will be implemented in two phases; audio and video. HRH Princess Dina Mired of Jordan will honor the project with a message of hope for people directly affected by cancer in the music video. The song will be launched during a concert held by Talal Abu Al Ragheb in 2014 summer.

What we are looking for

We aim to reach people and raise awareness through the song and subsequent concerts locally and internationally.

Our goal is to raise 45,000 $.

The Impact

As music affects our thoughts, feelings and behavior, it can have a positive, soothing effect on our health and that of cancer patients and their families. Rhythm is known to affect our bodies in such a way that our pulse and respiration are in time with the music's beat.

It has the power to move us and stir our emotions positively and certain pieces of music can affect us in deeply personal ways.

In addition to that this song can always be played as essential part of any fund raising events.
