Peter Chambers is an inspiring Aussie who, whilst living with the incurable Motor Neurone Disease, has found a reason to be and is living a wonderful life. From deep within he has found peace in the storm and purpose in his adversity and is now on a mission to make the most of every second, enjoy the simple things in life and make a positive difference in the lives of others.
Peter’s first symptoms in late 2017 to early 2018 led to a spinal fusion operation in May 2018. After the operation, his shoulders lost muscle rapidly and, whilst he gradually regained some use in his left arm, his left hand was severely weakened and he has never regained any more than about 10% of movement in his right arm. Neurologists, at the end of 2019, finally agreed the diagnosis was MND. He was diagnosed the Arm Flail version of MND, which lead to his arms losing all muscle first, then other muscles to follow.
Rather than fall into victim mode, Peter chose to find the positives in his situation, to live and love every moment and to fuel his purpose. He now devotes his time and energy to helping promote awareness of the disease and to be a voice of advocacy. I love his attitude towards life and Peter Chambers is a man who will touch your heart and your life. This is a wonderfully inspiring conversation that I encourage you to listen to.
Peter can contacted via his email or through LinkedIn.
