‘So Many Everests’ relives for you the struggles and triumphs of Victoria Webster – born with cerebral palsy, and her refusal to be beaten by anything or anyone. In the pursuit of her most unlikely dream she became Scandinavia's first accident and emergency medical specialist. ‘So Many Everests’ is one woman’s step by step ascent toward her goal. By turns horrifying, moving and even funny, Victoria recounts not only her own determination, but the enormous support she received from the few people who believed in her as a person, and helped her bring alive her story of hope and endurance.

Victoria was born in Finland of British parents, Diana and Michael Webster. Although she’d been born with brain damage resulting in cerebral palsy, Victoria had an ambition to become a doctor. Overcoming her first Everest, Diana went to a "normal" school in Finland where she was often a victim of classroom bullying. Even so, she carried on refusing to give up. At 11 she announced that she was going to become a doctor. Nobody believed this possible - not even her parents.

After two years of trying to gain entry to medical schools in Finland, Sweden, and Britain she succeeded in getting into medical school in Stockholm. Days later the school authorities insisted this had been a mistake. Again Victoria refused to give up and continued her studies despite pressure from staff and fellow students. Even on qualification, her problems were not over. Raising her sights yet again she worked at hospitals in Åland, England, Stockholm and Helsinki toward her aim of becoming an accident and emergency specialist, which she achieved in 2007.
