Description
Imagine growing up where a simple hug can break your back, where a handshake can leave you in a cast and where your dream of being a nurse is squashed because of your physical limitations. Davina Knight has not only overcome all these obstacles but pursued a life beyond her disability.

Her incredibly positive outcome will leave you with a huge smile on your face, just not as big as the one she wears when describing her daughter. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
