Synopsis

So Many Everests From Cerebral Palsy to Casualty Consultant by Diana Webster

Dr Victoria Webster was born with cerebral palsy, which resulted in a speech defect and some other disabilities. Determined to use her considerable talents to the utmost, she grew up to become a doctor - and the first to specialise in Accident and Emergency medicine in a Nordic country. Diana, Victoria's mother and co-author, was equally determined that her daughter should do everything that she could, and together they battled with ignorance, prejudice and fear. This is a book that will encourage, challenge and entertain. 'This is easily the most moving book I have read.' Katherine Whitehorn, journalist and columnist
