Beyond Ordinary

Show Summary

Beyond Ordinary is a medical documentary TV series developed by Discovery Health that brings together the unusual, sometimes rare, and amazing stories of people often struggling with a medical condition or a life-altering major surgery. For years, both American Lori Hoogewind and Romanian Lucia Bunghez have been carrying almost twice their weight thanks to tumors gaining more and more mass with each year. Two-year-old Kenadie Jourdin and nine-year-old New Zealander Nicolette are two little girls who will never grow as two of the thirty known cases of Primordial Dwarfism in the world. For toddler Juliana Wetmore, eight-year-old Shiloh Pepin, and Rosemarie, they have all defied the odds set out for them from birth as they continue to survive and thrive with their individually debilitating genetic conditions. Beyond Ordinary shows how these amazing people defy the odds to live their lives, often taking risky medical procedures in order to survive, relying upon their families and ingenuity, and doing whatever is necessary to have the same as everyone else.moreless
