Mother And Son Born Without Arms

A 35-year-old Linda Bannon was born with no arms – the result of the rare hereditary condition Holt-Oram syndrome, which affects bone growth and can cause heart problems. The same disease was inherited by Linda’s son Timmy who also uses his feet in place of his hands.

Linda Bannon and her son Timmy suffer from Holt Oram - a rare genetic condition which caused them to be born without arms. Despite their situation, 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.
