Inspiration of the Week: How Did This Young Boy Go From His Wheelchair To Breakdancing In A Single Afternoon?
Special thanks to Catherine Pergamo Whiting of the Pediatric Occupational Therapists Group on Facebook for posting this link. It totally made my day. I hope it makes yours!
After Matej Peljhan heard 12-year-old Luka express his dreams of seeing himself in a photo “walking around and doing all sorts of mischief,” the photographer / psychiatrist doubted there was much could to do help the boy. Luka suffers from muscular dystrophy and barely has enough strength to wiggle his fingers. After realizing he just needed a change of perspective, Peljhan figured out a way to use his camera to make Luka’s dreams a reality.
