TLC SHARES NICK VUJICIC'S INCREDIBLE LIFE JOURNEY IN THE SPECIAL "BORN WITHOUT LIMBS"
--The One-Hour Special Airs Wednesday, June 17 at 9/8c--
(Silver Spring, MD) - We all have our routine tasks that we do every day: get out of bed, brush our teeth, eat breakfast and go to work. Now imagine if you had to do all of this without any arms or legs. TLC follows the life of Nick Vujicic and his family in the one-hour special BORN WITHOUT LIMBS airing Wednesday, June 17 at 9/8c. Despite a rare condition causing him to be born without any limbs, Nick chooses to embrace life, and he overcomes new challenges every day.
Ever since Nick was a kid, he always wanted to do what everyone else could do, and it was a challenge he was willing to take on, crediting his desire, drive and faith to God. Now a motivational speaker and author, Nick travels the world encouraging people to love themselves and not give up on their own life journey. Surrounded by love himself, Nick receives unwavering support from his family, wife Kanae, son Kiyoshi and caretaker Nate.
Despite his differences, Nick is always ready to take on the world and push himself to be the best son, husband and father he can be. And, he's always searching for ways he can become more independent: washing his own hair, brushing his own teeth and even wanting to learn to drive.
