Thalidomide was hailed as a wonder drug for pregnant women; instead it caused the world’s worst medical catastrophe. Thousands of babies were born with deformities. Barry DeGeest was one of the most severely affected in New Zealand.

Today Barry is celebrating 50 years of extraordinary achievements and a life lived without boundaries.
