Born without arms: inspirational mother and son live life to the full
Linda Bannon and her son Timmy suffer from Holt Oram - a rare genetic condition due to which they were born without arms. Despite their condition they live a happy life in a non-modified home. Amazingly, they do everything with their feet and Timmy is a young sports star excelling in swimming and taekwondo. Linda is also studying to become a motivational speaker despite working through the day as a kindergarten teacher. We have been invited to spend two days with them as they go about their hectic lives.
