"Mind over matter" is a common phrase when encountering difficult situations. For Brandon Mendenhall, it was the mantra of his life.
Mendenhall was born with cerebral palsy, a neurological condition that affects movement, coordination and balance. More than one doctor told him he would never play an instrument, but Mendenhall had other plans, which he documents in his film, MIND OVER MATTER.
The film follows his unbelievable journey to rehabilitate his then-paralyzed left hand in order to play guitar, while also overcoming bullies and stereotypes. Along the way he found friendship and mentors with members of the Grammy-award winning band KORN.
Mendenhall joins Dr. Bond to share his resilience, despite being faced with not only physical challenges, but the bullying and misunderstandings he's experienced throughout his life.
