James Orrigo’s “Big Dreams” tour, funded by CCRF, provides a creative experience for kids fighting cancer in hospitals around the country.
James brings his guitar, along with a portable recording studio into a child’s hospital room and helps them write a song and animate a music video that expresses the child’s own creative ideas – the sillier, the better.
For that hour or two, the child gets James’s full attention and is able to find a positive distraction from the difficulties of their cancer treatment.
Once James leaves the hospital, he sends the raw recordings and animations to a team who helps create a fully animated music video for the child to proudly share with friends, family and hospital staff.
Children’s Cancer Research Fund is a national nonprofit, and thanks to donors and partners around the country, we have contributed $170 million to research, education and awareness and quality-of-life programs for childhood cancer families.
They believe kids deserve safer, less toxic treatments, and we’re committed to funding groundbreaking research and services that enhance healing and care.
