Kathy Jo Gutgsell, RN, MT-BC, music therapist at University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center talks about how music can help patients with cancer.

Gutgsell emphasizes that music is a good way for people diagnosed with cancer to manage their pain and anger. For example, patients often come to her mad and upset, but after beating a drum, that anger is released.

For patients facing death, Gutgsell said that writing a song, which she will put to music, can be a part of the legacy that they leave to their families.
