Using her music to help heal others

Lewisboro Ledger | Jane K. Dove

South Salem’s Monique Varsames first became involved with music to heal herself; now her music is helping to heal others.

The talented singer-songwriter has a newly released CD — Sweet Days — that she is using to help raise funds for two non-profit organizations, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and the Gift of Life Foundation, which facilitates organ transplants.

Ms. Varsames sat down with The Ledger last week to describe her personal and musical journey.
