Damian Buchman was an athletic teenager before he was diagnosed with a rare form of bone cancer. The disease left him physically disabled. After miraculously defeating the disease — twice! — he decided to devote his life to helping people with disabilities. He dreamed up The Ability Center: an inclusive recreational center for people of all ability levels. There was just one problem: he wasn’t “established” enough to raise millions of dollars to build it.
