The Thalidomide Society has been supporting those living with the effects of thalidomide for nearly 50 years by providing information, advice and practical assistance, as well as lobbying government and carrying out research.

But people who live with the effects of thalidomide can also speak for themselves about their own lives, experiences and needs.

Read the article Celebrate the difference! to find out what some of them have to say.
