Alysa Escobar was a healthy 30-year-old when a persistent cough brought her to her doctor's office. After a scan and biopsy, Alysa was diagnosed with Hodgkin lymphoma. She completed her chemotherapy treatments in in May and is cancer-free. While she was going through treatment, Alysa took advantage of Dana-Farber's Zakim Center for integrative therapies. Adult and pediatric patients treated at the Zakim Center credit the Center's range of integrative therapies with helping them increase their quality of life and ease symptoms and lessen the anxiety associated with their treatment. The music, movement and art offerings through the Zakim Center helped Alysa when she was feeling tired or in pain during treatment. When Alysa went for her first scan, the music therapy class she took through the Zakim Center, helped her stay calm and have a positive mind-set. Yoga and Qi Gong (CHE-GONG) classes at the Zakim Center helped her deal with the painful side effects of treatment and kept her body strong. Alysa also took advantage of Dana Farber's new mobile music studio which allowed her to write and record music while she was going through treatment. According to Alysa, "there is so much we do not control when we are sick and making music was something that helped me stay grounded." Alysa is now volunteering with her Improv group True Story Theater in Arlington and teaching a movement course at Lesley University this fall. She is hoping to use her experience with healing and the arts towards helping others. She sang the National Anthem before tonight's game.
