In the early 1960s a dramatic pharmaceutical event affected the lives of thousands of people worldwide: this is the story of the’ wonder drug’ which unleashed disaster when prescribed to pregnant women.  Sherry Husselbury explores how this impacted on her life, and lead to a deeper understanding of the way we look to others, and to ourselves.  

Sherry Husselbury, a Biology teacher for the past 30 years, has spent the past 16 years at Sir William Perkins's School in a number of different roles. She is currently the Deputy Head. She has a personal tale to tell which describes a journey from the darkness into light which will, hopefully, deliver a message about self-image and modern day aesthetic surgery.
