We are A Free Bird Organization, where we help children with cancer become artists. The arts have an importance in daily life and is shown to have healing properties; especially for children with cancer, it can have special calming effects.
Our mission is “to inspire children with cancer everywhere to ‘fly free‘ and become artists.
On Thursday, February 15th, as a tribute to International Childhood Cancer Awareness Day, we released our I Am A Free Bird music video, which has reached 10,000 views. I Am A Free Bird is the first ever anthem for Childhood Cancer. The video features 18-year-old talented singer and cancer survivor, Falyn Vega performing along with the founder and Creative Director, Godni Amir. This video chronicles Falyn’s story of fighting cancer and emerging victorious. Along with Falyn, other children of A Free Bird are also highlighted in the video performing their soothing arts.
