Woman, 31, with cerebral palsy writes eight books with one finger

By Wang Ji


Born with cerebral palsy, a woman who can't walk or even communicate normally, has written eight books with one moveable finger.


Wang Yi, now 31, was born in Yancheng, Jiangsu province in the winter of 1989. She developed cerebral palsy due to oxygen deprivation at birth caused by premature rupture of the membranes. Confined to a wheelchair as she began to grow up, eating and bathing are difficult tasks for her unaided.


However, Wang and her parents have stayed positive throughout.


In infancy , she could not sit like other children and a doctor declared she would not live to reach the age of 10. However, her parents never thought about giving up. In order to treat Wang, they went to Beijing, Shanghai and Nanjing to seek medical treatment, which almost cost them all their savings.


Wang's parents taught her to "regard herself as a normal person even if she is deemed to be physically disabled." She practiced repeatedly to handle many daily activities such as eating and dressing. Even more, with parental help, she has learned how to cope with her physical disability and become an outstanding writer.
