Subject: RE: Singing good for health & community
A friend of mine hails from an asthmatic family; her father literally died from it and other relatives have had their lives severely impacted by it.

My friend started playing harmonica when she was a girl and took it up seriously when she reached age 50 or so. She and two others (guitar and autoharp) formed a band called Young at Heart and play at farmers markets, fairs, nursing homes and churches.

Her doctors have told her that her lungs are better now - 20 years later- than they were when she was young.
