I was determined. Gritting my teeth I slowly hauled myself out of the wheelchair, placed my hands on the parallel bars & steadied myself. “Go on, you can do it”, Mum encouraged tearfully. I smiled, “I know” and slowly and shakily I put one metal leg in front of the other. I’d done it - achieved the impossible - walked again after losing my legs to meningitis. But walking was one thing, riding was another and I really wanted to get back into the saddle. Since I was 7 I’d been winning medals in riding competitions. But all of that changed one day in Novermber 2007 when I came over all queasy and achey. “I think I’m coming down with something” I told Mum & Dad. “Sleep it off” they advised. But the following morning Mum noticed a rash on my back and rushed me to hospital. When I woke up I was in hospital with my parents at my bedside. “You went into cardiac arrest - we thought we’d lost you!” Dad exclaimed. “You’ve been in a coma for 3 weeks and we had no choice but to let them amputate!”

THIS is the woman who has made medical history - by giving birth to identical triplets whilst suffering from cystic fibrosis. Kandace Smith, from South Louisiana, USA , was told by doctors to terminate the dangerous triplet pregnancy as they didn’t think she was going to survive. People with the lung disease cystic fibrosis only have a short life expectancy and any pregnancy is dangerous because of the extra pressure it puts on the lungs. But Miss Smith, 20, bravely refused, and carried on with the world first pregnancy, even though it meant risking her own life.

WITH their carefree smiles Emma Anstee and her sons Arie and Louis look the picture of health. But tragically their lives could be cut short at any moment - by the simple ring of an alarm clock or the school bell. Miss Anstee and both her sons have been diagnosed with a life threatening rare heart condition which means a sudden loud noise could cause their hearts to stop beating. Son Arie, 15, has even been forced to stop playing football - and can’t even watch a match on the television for fear that it may stop his heart. The boys are both on medication but they have to make sure that none of them aren’t exposed to any sudden noise.

My sister Hayley and I sat in the cinema and tears were pouring down both of our faces. It was the saddest film we’d both seen in ages, and we were just both gripped by it. It was October and we’d gone to see the film ‘My Sister’s Keeper’, about one sister who has leukaemia and the parents have another child so she can give her sister a lifesaving bone marrow transplant.

I loved picking up the phone and talking to Lee Hanson. Every few weeks I’d have the excuse to dial his number and we’d have a good chat down the phone. I was 18 and working at the local job centre. Lee worked in the council’s housing department and I needed to call him for work placements. After the work questions were out the way, we’d have a chat, and a bit of a giggle and a flirt. I felt safe talking to him down the telephone line. To him I was a person at the end of the phone and he could hear the real me. He didn’t have to see my face.

LITTLE Amelia Jones is the littlest lifesaver - after saving her mother’s life. When she was just 15 months old, Amelia elbowed her mother Jill accidentally in the side of her left breast. When Mrs Jones rubbed at her breast to ease the pain she felt a lump there that she hadn’t felt before. Tests showed it was breast cancer and she underwent an immediate operation to remove the lump. She underwent a mastectomy operation, chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment in an attempt to beat the disease. Now she is all clear - and credits Amelia, now four, with saving her life that day.

NO sex-please, we’re.....vegetables. When Kate Stockton dug up this saucy ‘Mr’ and ‘Mrs’ Carrot in her allotment she couldn’t believe her eyes. First of all she dug up Mr Carrot and couldn’t believe it when she saw his ‘meat and two veg’ on display. But then she dug up the carrot growing next to him and found Mrs Carrot - who looked rather less willing than her hubby. Kate, 43, who lives with hubby Gerry, in Stockport, said: ‘It’s just like the average British couple in the bedroom. It looks like Mrs Carott is saying not tonight dear, I’ve got a headache.!’
