Helping Patients with Life-Altering Illnesses and Disabilities Through Music and The Arts
Artist – Maryann Anselmo
MaryAnn Anselmo, co-founder of The Bungalow knows what cancer patients go through. A brain cancer survivor, she’s been there and understands that everyone’s situation is unique. While continuing her treatments through Precision Medicine & Clinical Trials, she finds solace in music, theater, art. As a jazz singer, songwriter, author and artist, she uses her expressive artistic activities to inspire others with hope and encouragement.
The core mission of The Bungalow is to help cancer patients and patients with life-altering illnesses and disabilities reduce adverse physiological and psychological health issues through music and the arts. We believe that engagement in music, visual arts therapy, movement-based creative expression and expressive writing is not only comforting, cheerful and supportive; but also promotes wellness and healing.
Through your generous support we are able to give “Packages of Hope” to these individuals. The packages contain a variety of items hand-picked by Maryann including music, books and other expressive artistic items such as art class enrollment, theater and ballet tickets, expressive writing classes, or items specially chosen to meet the patient’s interests.
