When Betsy was two-and-a-half, doctors discovered that she had a large brain tumour.  Her Mum, Rochelle tells Betsy’s story.

Betsy was a very content baby and toddler who slept and ate well and was developing like any other child. But just before Betsy’s second birthday she started to want to be carried all the time and often said she was ‘poorly’.

Robert is 53 and has Down's Syndrome. He lives in a specialist care home where he is given the support he needs day to day. 

Robert spends a lot of time in his room - he has a heightened need for personal space and objects too close to him and noise from other people can agitate him. Robert also has many phobias - including any kind of transport, which greatly limits his interaction with others, leaving him at times very isolated. 

This is why music therapy has come so be so important to him.
