Life hasn’t been kind to this man but that hasn’t stopped him from boosting others

For 21-year-old Dustin Chapman, life has been no less kind but that hasn't stopped him from coming to aid of others. His story encapsulates humanity at its best.

Chapman is affected with a rare disease called Achalasia. It means his esophagus muscles quit functioning and to cope with that, the man has chosen music and that has also worked as a therapy for many others in Duke Hospital where he is undergoing treatment.

Chapman has not been able to eat or drink anything for months now because of his ailment but his singing doesn't give a hint about it, proving how much he is attached to it. A video of Chapman singing his own 'Lead the Way' song on the piano at the hospital was shared on his Facebook page and it was shared over 3,300 times in a few days.

Chapman had a surgery three years ago which allowed him to eat anything he wanted but now he is facing problem in swallowing food and drinks. But that has not made him a depressed man as music therapy has taken over.

What has made Chapman happier is that cancer patients at Duke Hospital have also taken encouragement from him to lead a better life. "I had cancer patients coming up to me, and they were just crying, and they were like, 'That was probably therapeutic for you, but we needed that just as much as you did'," said Chapman. For him, it was very rewarding.
