THE STORY:

My husband, Sterling Procter, is an amazing person and an accomplished musician and composer.  His condition, Inclusion Body Myositis, is a rare progressive muscle disease which has gradually made performing impossible.  The cause is unknown and at present, there is no cure.  He was an accomplished professional on guitar and French horn and was a hornist for 35 years with the Fort Worth Symphony.  He also performed with the Festival Brass of Dallas from its beginning in 1979 until 2012.  For 20 years, Sterling was also a member of the Music in the Mountains summer festival orchestra in Durango, Colorado, where he enjoyed cycling, fishing and hiking the San Juan mountains.  Sterling’s composing and arranging have been more challenging as the condition continues to weaken his arms, hands and fingers. 

Sterling now relies on me to dress him, bathe him, feed him and perform everyday tasks. His walking is very limited with the use of grab bars and only for a short distance.  He requires help to get in and out of bed.  Through all this, Sterling views his condition as a challenge rather than a curse.  He has a positive, cheerful outlook and a peace that passes all understanding.

The Boston Marathon was an amazing experience,  Chicago is our next step and then New York City.  Join with me as we continue to celebrate Sterling and raise funds for IBM research.
