Bob Cafaro has been a cellist with the Philadelphia Orchestra since 1985. In early 1999, Bob was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Six months later he was nearly blind, unable to use his hands, and he was told he would be on permanent disability. Refusing to accept his prognosis, Bob set out to cure himself of the disease. He has since continued his career as a cellist with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Today he is in perfect health and shows no signs of MS. In his new book, Bob shares the knowledge he gained from extensive research, personal life experiences, and studying people who have accomplished the impossible. Bob is passionate about inspiring and motivating those afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis and other illnesses. The successful mindset and methods he used to beat his incurable illness can be applied to other diseases, injuries, and many of life's challenges.
This recital features music by Bach, Schubert, Schumann, and Popper with pianist Elizabeth Borowsky.
