overcoming handicaps http://kalw.org en Coping With a New Handicap: A pianist (Marty Nemko) loses the use of three fingers. http://kalw.org/post/coping-new-handicap-pianist-marty-nemko-loses-use-three-fingers <p>All of us have some sort of handicap, even if it's not officially recognized. Maybe we're emotionally tone-deaf,&nbsp; maybe we just can't ever seem to motivate ourselves. One of Marty Nemko's handicaps is a recently acquired one: He developed a hand condition which renders three of his fingers pretty-much useless.</p><p>Marty was a pianist and when he developed that condition, he decided, before depression and self-pity took hold, to take on the challenge of learning how to play the piano with just seven fingers.</p> Sun, 25 Nov 2012 20:19:26 +0000 Marty Nemko 19776 at http://kalw.org
