Local man working to build a one-of-a-kind Ability Center

Posted on Oct 14, 2013 by Wellness

The Ability Center is the brainchild of Damian Buchman, a Wauwatosa man who beat bone cancer more than 20 years ago.

The Ability Center will be a place where people with and without disabilities will be able to work out together.  Damian came up with the idea for the center about 4 years ago.  He explains, “90% of the battle I believe when it comes to fitness and athletics and working is comfort–‘I feel wanted, welcome, comfortable.  I belong here.  I’m not a burden here, I’m not in the way here.'”

Damian can relate to that feeling.  He’s had 32 total surgeries, 22 on his legs alone.
