My father was born with no arms, similar to the thalidomide babies being born all over Europe,

Canada and the UK in the early late fifties. For a time our family lived in Germany while my father traveled all over England and the Continent speaking to groups of distraught parents, helping them see that a normal life, not institutionalization, would be best for the kids, and showing by his example how they might be inspired to do so despite the hardships.

Dr Kelsey showed great courage to stand up to the big pharma companies and keep the drug from this country. The numbers of affected kids here would have been so many times greater.

Rest in Peace Dr Kelsey.
