Myles Latham of Concord, California, loves music. The 10-year-old, who suffers from anxiety and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), considers music his source of tranquility and peace.
“You feel like really hyper, but then it’s like ahh,” Myles described.
Myles is also a natural piano player, who can create his own original music.
“I just wanted to sit down and piece together things,” Myles said.
Unfortunately, his family could never afford the high cost of a piano for their son, until one day when Myles’ mom, Beth, was driving his sister to high school. She made a stunning discovery. There, on the sidewalk, was a piano. It was free for the taking.
The only thing standing in her way was the sheer size and weight of the piano, which she knew she could not lift up, into her truck, by herself.
So, she went and asked for the help of a group of teens from the nearby Clayton Valley Charter High School.
The boys, who were members of the school’s baseball team, didn’t hesitate. They helped Beth lift the piano onto her truck.
Myles finally has his own piano to help him calm the storm in his mind.
“He’s able to relax and have that calm time to himself and have a couple of minutes when he is relaxed and not going through the anxiety and stress he goes through,” said Beth.
