Cancer survivors of all ages can now share their voices and their experiences by participating in the Victory Choir, organized by the OSU School of Music and JamesCare for Life. Singing in the choir helps participants learn techniques to strengthen their vocal chords and lungs and deepen their breathing. No experience or singing ability is required.
