Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story 2

When we meet “Bennie” in the movie, he is struggling in school and is ridiculed by other children-making it hard for Ben to control his anger. With the amount of prejudice Ben faces and struggles of growing up in inner city Detroit, it would be easy for us to see him give up on his dream of becoming a doctor. But with the love and support of his mother, Ben is able to push himself past anything that might stand in his way. Sonya is an amazing single mother who knows Ben’s true intelligence and abilities and motivates her son to work hard to accomplish what he wants.

In Gifted Hands, we see a young boy grow and push himself to the top of everything he does. Gifted Hands is a story filled with inspiration. The husband and I sat down together to watch Gifted Hands and both couldn’t help but smile as we watched Ben’s accomplishments after realized his love for learning.

Dr. Carson was the first doctor ever to successfully separated conjoined twins joined at the back of the head. Each patient that Dr. Carson has, he takes interest in and has helped many families. Honored and respected by many, he has also earned the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
