When Greg Khalil was a young man the violin was more than an instrument, it was his life. He practiced three to five hours every day. And then, inexplicably, one day he couldn’t control two of his fingers. The violin was his passion and now it was gone. The pain was so great that for years he couldn’t even listen to music. He thought he would never play the violin again. The doctors at Mount Sinai had a different opinion. They diagnosed Greg with a rare disease called dystonia. Greg’s doctors began injecting small amounts of botulinum toxin into his left arm, a very novel treatment. After only two visits, nearly twenty years to the day since his last performance, Greg began playing again. And that gave everyone reason to applaud.
For you. For life.
