Many people use music to get through a bad time or to give them the power to fight back. Some people use music to put them in a good mood or to translate what they're feeling. Each month we bring you a playlist from one of our Valerie Fund kids with a different theme and they will explain, in their own words, what these songs mean to them.

Put on your headphones and join us for the this month's Valerie Fund Music Mondays as we look at Charlotte's playlist, "Fight Like a Girl."
