Hughes was born with physical anomalies. He was diagnosed as anophthalmia with pterygium and
congenital hip dysplasia. He had no vision of sight,
could not stand on his feet and had to sit on wheelchair all his life. When
he was nine months old, his father discovered that he had a talent to play the
piano after hearing others play a tune. Since then, he did not stop from
playing the piano. His father John Hughes decided to raise his son as normal as
possible. He encouraged him to learn all types of musical instruments. In
2006, Patrick enrolled at the University of Louisville and participated in the marching band as a
trumpet player. He practiced along with other players while his father pushed
him in his wheelchair through the marching routines. They overcame many
difficulties and eventually went to all of the games. Their commitment
attracted a large crowd and much media attention throughout the fall season.
Both Hughes was subsequently featured in a variety of television and
newspaper coverage. Patrick was invited to play piano and sing in many
musical performances throughout the country. In 2008, he was recognized by
Rev. Bill Hybels at the Willow Creek Leadership
Summit. He also was selected by the popular TV program “Extreme Makeover:Home Edition” which
donated a beautiful mansion completed just in nine days by hundreds of
volunteers. He published a book, I am Potential, and recorded
a person born blind and paralyzed be able to accomplish such achievements? It
is because of his loving parents. His father had amazing perseverance, which
led Patrick through many challenges, and trails that
enabled him to develop his potential to the fullest extent and made him an
excellent example and encouragement for other handicapped persons. Patrick
said once: “I believe God allowed me to be born with all sorts of
deficiencies in order to develop the potential, He has
bestowed to me.” Being a father of a handicapped child,
Mr. Hughes used love and encouragement to fulfill the Heavenly Father’s will
to transform a damaged body into a lovely angel.Dear fathers, do not overlook your child’s
potential.Let them do their best, so
that they can live a life to glorify God.
