Brian began playing piano as a young child growing up in Los Angeles and turned his love of music into a career. However, Brian was diagnosed with myopic macular degeneration: a progressive disease causing a slow loss of vision. “It really affected my driving," Brian recalls. "It affected my piano playing. It affected my whole life."
Suddenly, due to several hardships including losing people dear to him, Brian found himself grappling with grief, his vision loss, isolation from difficulty driving, and mounting expenses all at the same time.
“I literally did not know what I was going to do,” Brian says. That’s when he decided to sell his keyboards. He also decided to reach out for help.
