Shane's Beats From The Heart

Shane's Beats from the Heart is a bereavement legacy project and collaborative effort between BPM Music Therapy LLC, Shane's Future Days, and Kelly Goldin BS, CCLS, CTRS, bereavement coordinator with the Justin Ingerman Center for Palliative Care at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. The funds raised for Shane's Beats From the Heart will provide palliative care patients and their families with music therapy support outside of the hospital setting, through the form of a legacy building, process-oriented project. Patients and/or their families will be given the opportunity to engage in the project which might incorporate music, recordings of meaningful sounds and voices, and/or other creative elements such as the recording of a heartbeat. Heartbeat recordings in music therapy are musical recordings in which the recording of a heartbeat is integrated as a key element.


In collaborating with Shane’s Future Days and the CHOP Palliative Care Team, my primary goal is to provide meaningful legacy building opportunities that are helpful for patients and families, and to serve as a support for patient and families through their individual grief processes.


Shanes Future Days, on the project: "This specially curated keepsake is made by the music therapist in collaboration with the family, who is integrated throughout the creative process. It is the perfect duet of a child and family, symbolizing their legacy of love."
