“I don’t believe in ‘I can’t’.”

This is what band teacher Gina Christopherson told her student Ethan when he tried to quit the school’s band.

Ethan has a muscle disease that weakens his body over time.  He didn’t want to hold his classmates back when he started lagging behind others, so he told his teacher, “I really hate to do this, but I have to quit band.”

She refused to accept that and worked to find a way for Ethan to continue participating in his favorite school activity.
