Lachlan Terry

Author |  Scouts Australia Leader | Radio DJ | Home Barber | Traveler | Photographer | Art Leasing Business Entrepreneur

Lachlan Terry led a vibrant, active life until the unsettling prospect of being confined to a wheelchair emerged. In his 42 years, he had avoided debilitating injuries, relying on a mix of good luck and management. The gradual and unexpected onset of his condition hindered job opportunities and even mundane tasks like picking up a coin.

The question "Why me?" lingered, but Lachlan learned to accept life's unpredictable nature during 13 years of uncertainty, misdiagnoses, and hurdles. His upbringing on an outback station instilled a pragmatic outlook, and he embraced the idea of playing the hand he was dealt.

Despite his undiagnosed condition, Lachlan remained mobile, using a walking frame or electric mobility scooter, covering an impressive 5,500 kilometers in a year. He remained devoted to various roles as a Scouts Australia leader, radio DJ, home barber, traveler, photographer, and Art Leasing business entrepreneur. Grateful for opportunities, he eagerly shared his story, embracing the power of politeness and gratitude that had always guided him. Determined and resilient, Lachlan Terry showed the world the strength to seize every chance life offers.
