John Peterson is a banjo player who has Poland Syndrome. This is his second video sharing his life experiences of living with Poland Syndrome.
John talks to us today about growing up with Poland Syndrome. What it was like as a child growing up with a limb difference through to adult hood.
John courageously tells us of some experiences where he felt upset or uncomfortable living with Poland Syndrome. This may be difficult watching for some of you but it's important to share the good with the bad.
John talks also about how his confidence built over time. He shares how humour helped to deal with some of the questions he has been asked over the years.
If you have Poland Syndrome you may identify with some of John's experiences. If you know someone with Poland Syndrome or other limb difference this video can really open your eyes to what it is like.
Thanks for dropping by and taking some time out to listen to John. Poland Syndrome is a visual difference and for young people it can be difficult to get along with their peers. Please share this post with your friends and family. The more people know and understand the more we can help.
