Ken and Daniel Trush of Daniel's Music Foundation

Last night, Katie and Mike Sweeney were able to attend the fundraiser for a once again great organization that brings music to Dustin Sweeney and his friends - Daniel's Music Foundation

Daniel’s Music Foundation empowers individuals with developmental and physical disabilities by combining recreational music programs with community and socialization. We use the transformative power of music to create a community that is built on acceptance and respect.
— Daniel's Music Foundation

Daniel’s Music Foundation was started after Daniel Trush had a series of undetected brain aneurysms at the age of 12, In 2005, after 8 years of searching, Daniel found that music was his “super power”. The Trush Family researched the power of music and programs that were available for individuals with disabilities, and they found there was a void. There were conservatories that focused on music performance and excellence and music therapy but there didn’t seem to be anything in between. And there were no programs available for individuals with disabilities in a group setting. Daniel's Music filled that niche.

In the post-21+ life for Dustin Sweeney and his friends, Daniel's Music will continue to be a big part of his life.
