Peter Gibilisco was diagnosed with the progressive neurological condition called Friedreich's Ataxia at age 14. The disability has made his life painful and challenging. He rocks the boat substantially in the formation of needed attributes to succeed in life. For example, he successfully completed a PhD at the University of Melbourne, which was achieved late into the disability's progression. However, he still performs research with the university, as an honorary fellow.
