Disabled man receives a PhD

This is an inspiring story of a disabled man who completed a PhD. Here are some snippets from that story:

A DUNBAR man who was left disabled after being seriously injured in a car accident as a child has been awarded a PhD – after completing a thesis on the experiences of people with disabilities.

Colin Cameron, of Friarscroft, was left in a coma when he was nine years old, after a vehicle struck him while he crossed a road in the former Yugoslavia while on holiday.

It left him with several long-term disabilities, affecting his speech, restricting movement in his arms and resulting in a knee replacement. Doctors predicted he would never see, hear or speak again – let alone achieve a doctorate.
