Pat Moeschen is 39 years old and a music teacher in New Hampshire. He has Becker’s Muscular Dystrophy, which is a less severe form of Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, and loves to play the drums. I met him at the annual Parent Project Muscular Dystrophy conference this July and was inspired that, despite his disability, he still does what he loves to do, teaching children to play music. As you can tell, he also follows my motto, “Despite my disability, my abilities have NO bounds” and strives every single day to teach others the same.
The following video is a glimpse into what Pat goes through every single day, and a lot of what I go through every day too. You will see how he has adapted his van, house, and classroom to fit his needs. The sling that he uses in the end is the same one that I use to get in and out of my bed. My house is adapted for some of my needs too, just like his house, but instead of one floor, my house has three floors. I use an elevator to go upstairs where my bedroom is and then use it again to get back down to ground level. So, are you ready?
