The Ukulele Babes, three women from La Mesa, play regularly at retirement homes and bring joy to many, including the group’s newest member. Former Scripps breast cancer patient Anastasia Berkheimer joined the group in 2012 and recently told The East County Californian magazine in an interview that playing “has been like therapy to her.”
“Playing the ukulele with my friends helps me to relax. It helps me to focus on the positive in life, keeps my mind sharp,” she told The Californian.
