About:

In this motivational address, Lloyd Bachrach inspires others with his riveting story about living with a severe physical disability. Born with Proximal Femoral Focal Deficiency (PFFD), a rare congenital bone deficiency, Lloyd faces tremendous challenges on a daily basis. Lloyd’s humor, honestly, and open perspective put audiences at ease.  As part of the Yes You Can! Program, Lloyd removes his prosthetic legs so that the audience can see his real legs, fully conceptualize his challenges, and gain an understanding of how the artificial limbs help him.  Lloyd demonstrates how he achieved success in a variety of sports ranging from Little League Baseball to gymnastics—in which he excelled throughout high school in college— to Sitting Volleyball, the sport for which he competed at the 1996 Paralympics.  Lloyd also inspires audiences with his “five keys to success”: 1) Build High Self-Esteem 2) Focus with a Positive Attitude 3) Set Powerful Goals 4) Persevere 5) Maintain a Healthy Mind, Body, and Spirit.  After hearing Lloyd’s uplifting Yes, You Can! message, audience members gain a new perspective on overcoming their own personal challenges, no matter what they might be.
