Born a congenital amputee, John Robinson has no hands. His arms stop at his elbows. His lower legs are attached to his hips without knees. He is 3’9” tall. As a child, John’s parents had many worries: Would he be able to go to school? Could he hold a pencil? Could he ever support himself.
Through his remarkable tenacity, talent and faith, John has succeeded in business and in building a family in a way that few may have expected from the outset. In Get Off Your Knees: The John Robinson Story, we get to know a man who has made his way in a world not designed for those without the dexterity of typical arms and legs.
Witness the determination required for John to do that which others take for granted, from driving a car to playing a round of golf and becoming a father. Witnessing the support of his family and John’s determination to succeed makes for inspirational television.
