A Free Bird is an entirely volunteer-run organization committed to helping young people (ages 4-8) fight cancer through the healing power of the arts in everyday life. Recognized by Mayor Bill DeBlasio for our volunteer efforts, we provide arts education resources to hospitals and pediatric cancer patients to help them express their ideas and develop their passions while facing treatment.
