PRSSA Chapter Holds Music Saved Me Benefit

Student PRSSA chapter logo

The Public Relations Student Society of America Husson University/New England School of Communications Chapter raised $1,200 for the Pediatric Oncology Center at Eastern Maine Medical Center through its Music Saved Me benefit concert. The concert featured Paranoid Social Club, the Transducers, One Shot Nothing, Mines of Paris, and When Particles Collide.

The funds will be used to provide some entertainment and distraction for
children who are ill with cancer. PRSSA Officer and Leukemia survivor,
Erin Falwell is helping organize Music Saved Me for it’s second year, as
it has become an annual event for PRSSA. Music Saved Me will help
EMMC’s patients through arts and entertainment. Falwell elaborates “In
the hospital I would see kids my age (14) and very young children
undergo harsh treatments. The staff would do all they could to help us
pass the time and distract us from it all. A child’s laughter is not
hard to come by when they are full of energy and playing outside, but it
is much harder to come by inside an oncology center. This is why we
must do everything to help keep these kid’s spirits high.”
