OUR PROGRAMS

MUSIC THERAPY

We provide musical instruments, musicians, and program funding to bring the healing powers of music to life. We donate instruments for children to keep and take home.

SHAKE, RATTLE & ROCK®

Our new music video series produced especially for hospitalized & special needs kids! Shake, Rattle & Rock features 18 music videos – each a mini-TV show – with performances by virtuoso and legendary musicians in Rock, Broadway, Salsa, Jazz, Classical, Blues, and Country.

FETAL HEARTBEAT & TRANSPLANT RECORDING PROGRAM

We donate stethoscope microphones, recording equipment, and recordable stuffed bears, so that the heartbeats of children at risk may be memorialized in a permanent recording for families to keep.

NATIONAL PROGRAMS

We have provided music programs to more than 35,000 pediatric and special needs patients, with programs across the country — from New York to California and from Michigan to Florida.

The Dick Wagner Remember the Child Memorial Fund is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. Established in 2014.
