Billy shares how he learned one of his biggest life lessons: there truly is life after diagnosis!
Since his comeback, organizations around the world have asked Billy to share his story. He has been described as "the walking, talking, music-making example of the 'impossible' giving way to persistence, innovation, discipline, and creativity." Through an innovative mix of music, storytelling, and disarming humor, Billy offers a new perspective on overcoming challenges. He inspires audiences to action, proving that nothing can hold you back from creating the success you desire. This truth is music to the ears that comes straight from the heart.

"I've been on stages playing guitar for decades, but sharing my story and inspiring others to stop underestimating their own potential is truly my life's calling. Our goals are not set high enough if they do not include the impossible! We need to believe in ourselves and each other. Once we truly begin working together I believe all things are possible."
It was really inspirational. He did such a great job just being himself and brave enough to share his life journey with us.
