Don't Tell Me I Can't: How One Thalidomide Survivor Turned Adversity into Triumph
Don't Tell Me I Can't: How One Thalidomide Survivor Turned Adversity into Triumph

This is the inspirational story of Leigh Gath, born without arms or legs due to thalidomide.

Through her own unwavering determination, as well as support of family and friends, Leigh has overcome prejudices, lived through the Northern Ireland conflicts, married, escaped life with an alcoholic husband to raise her two children, only to find love again.

Throughout her life Leigh has been an activist, working for dignity, respect and acceptance for people with disabilities. This is not the story of a victim, but rather of a woman who has learned and grown through experiences life has brought her way - refusing to let anyone steal her dreams.
