Matthew Zachary has been passionate about music since he started taking piano lessons at the age of eleven. He spent long hours practicing and dreamed of one day performing for audiences around the world. Six months shy of his college graduation, with ambitions to become a Hollywood film composer, Matthew's faith was tested when he lost all motor coordination in his left hand and was diagnosed with medulloblastoma, an extremely rare form of pediatric brain cancer usually found in infants and toddlers. Matthew was 21. Doctors said he might never walk, let alone perform again. Eleven years, four albums and scores of concerts later, Matthew's struggle to get busy living has inspired countless thousands. Today, Matthew is an award-winning musician and composer, accredited thought-leader in public health, a leading authority on youth culture, a highly credentialed and coveted motivational speaker, and a burgeoning social entrepreneur with his foundation, The I'm Too Young For This Cancer Foundation, a global support community of young adults affected by cancer who get busy living and rock on.
