November 2012 Book of the Month.

An inspirational true life story of how Victoria Webster overcame cerebral palsy to become an accident and emergency consultant. In a book that will challenge, encourage and entertain we follow the battles against ignorance and prejudice Victoria and her mother Diana faced and their determination to make sure she was able to fulfill her potential.


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
