About the “Who Says I Can’t” series from the YouTube channel:

“Who Says I Can’t” is a television show hosted by cancer survivor, entrepreneur and extreme disabled athlete Jothy Rosenberg, that tells the story of brave and determined people as they overcome disabilities and become athletes.

The program will feature the “up close and personal” style of Olympic features combined with the heart-warming community elements of “Extreme Makeover” and mix them with the excitement of “The Amazing Race.”

In each episode Jothy will introduce a different character on location and tell their story using interviews with them, family members and friends. Then, Jothy, with his own disabilities of only one leg and one lung, will participate with them in their chosen sport. Jothy will say “Who Says I Can’t” and give it his best shot.
