A stroke victim is working to help a 23-year-old man who also suffered a stroke in recent years relearn how to play the guitar.

Gary Gill, who is an accomplished guitar player, suffered a stroke a decade ago at 39-years-old. The medical event left his left hand numb.

Since then, Gill has relearned to play the musical instrument he loves and is working to teach Mya Inmaibawi to play the guitar again after he suffered a stroke at the age of 21.

“Ten years later I'm back to playing guitar again and that's why I'm trying to help Mya get back to where he wants to be and help him play.  The hardest part for him is time, and it was for me too,” Gill said.

“It makes me feel strong. I can do that, but he's also a believer in Jesus and I also believe in Christ and I look at this cross, it says with God all things are possible and I always keep in my mind and in my heart so I hope that I will be better and I will get about my life,” Inmaibawi said.

An occupational therapist at Southern Hills Medical Center arranged the meeting of the two guitar lovers.

Gill is letting Inmaibawi borrow a guitar to learn to play again.
