WHEN Alistair Sutcliffe suffered a brain haemorrhage, the doctors thought it was going to be fatal. But amazingly Dr Sutcliffe survived - only because of climbing the worldís highest mountains. Because he had regularly climbed mountains since he was a teenager, it meant that blood vessels in his brain which would normally become defunct after birth were kept working. When he suffered the brain haemorrhage, the blood was able to re-route round his brain, using this second set of blood vessels, which kept him alive. Mr Sutcliffe, 45, who works as a GP in Whitby, North Yorkshire, said: ĎI knew that a brain haemorrhage could be fatal, and the doctors didnít think I was going to make it. ĎBut at the hospital they discovered this second circulation system in my brain, and that's what kept me alive.

THIS is the mum and daughter who both swell up to look like the elephant man after they were both born with a rare syndrome. Tracey Holden and her daughter Kirsty, ten, have to be frequently rushed to hospital for lifesaving treatment when they suffer their swelling attacks. They both suffer from angiodema, the rapid swelling of the skin, and both suffer such severe reactions that it could suffocate them. Mrs Holden, 35, who lives with husband Richard, 36, a medical records clerk, and their son son Joel, 12, in Wednesbury, West Midlands, said: Ďiím always very worried when Kirsty swells up and i always rush her off to hospital. ĎWe both suffer severe reactions where our windpipes and throats also swell, so it can be lifethreatening for both of us.

THERE comes a time in every school holiday when an exhausted mother has to take a break from boisterous offspring. That moment came for this lioness after letting her newborn cubs take a feed of milk from her. She had already done the dayís hunting and came back to feed her hungry cubs with her milk. But after letting them feed for a while the exhausted mother decided she needed some time out, and rolled over so they couldnít reach the milk. It left the cubs in no doubt about her feelings after they were left staring at her turned back. But whilst one of the them got the message and retired to a nearby bush to chew on some leaves in frustration instead, it didnít deter the other who nimbly jumped onto his motherís back to try and reach the milk from the other side.

THIS is the baby who was so tiny when he was born - he was the size of his motherís GLOVE. Doctors told his devastated parents that if he was born prior to 24 weeks, his birth would be classed as MISCARRIAGE. When he was born at just 23 weeks, mum Toni Robertson begged the doctors to resuscitate tiny Jack after he started to cry when he was delivered. Weighing just 1Ib4, he was the size of his motherís glove as he battled for life in his hospital incubator. Now tiny Jack has defied all the odds to survive and after a six month battle in hospital he was finally allowed home.

There was nothing more I loved better than climbing up onto a horse and going for a ride. That particular afternoon was no different to any other. I arrived at the stables, We rode for an hour and then we came back and I went home. A few days later I woke up with a sore throat. I went to college as usual but as the day went on it became so unbearable that they next day I stayed at home in bed. It felt like I had a bad case of flu, so I didnít really think anything of it. But after a week I was getting worse. My breathing got very laboured and my kidneys werenít functioning properly.

A WOMAN who made legal history when her parents had her sectioned to save her from anorexia has stunned medics by giving birth. Vicki Fox was just three days from death when she was admitted into hospital weighing only four stone. It had been an agonising decision for her parents Linda and David Carter to undertake a legal battle against their daughter, then 16, to be sectioned under the Mental Health Act and force fed in hospital. But it saved her life. And now against all the odds, Vicki, now 27, has just given birth to a healthy baby son Finlay.

I was sitting on the bedroom windowsill of my friendís house, feeling the sun on my back. It was a hot Sunday afternoon in September 2008, and Iíd gone round to a friendís house to have a chat and a catch up. There were about 12 of us at the house that afternoon. There was some music playing and people were just lounging around talking. Some people were drinking, but I didnít feel like having a drink that day. I was just enjoying catching up on the gossip with my friends. Then suddenly one of the lads who was larking around with a friend just a few feet away bumped into me. I was sitting on the window sill with nothing behind me to lean against. I lost my balance, and for a split second I could feel myself falling backwards. It felt surreal - like it was happening in slow motion, like I was dreaming. I donít remember acutally hitting the ground, but afterwards I was told that I had fallen 13 feet backwards, onto the concrete patio below.

BRITAINíS first woman to have four organ transplants †has just qualified to be a doctor. Aliison John, 32, made medical history in 2006 when she became the first person to have a four organ transplant, all with different organs. She received a new liver in 1995, a heart and lungs in 1997, then in 2006 received a kidney from her father David whilst she was part way through her medical studies. She has made a full recovery and has just graduated from Cardiff University to start working as a junior hospital doctor.

THIS is the boy who has managed to beat a brain tumour - despite being sent home SIX times by doctors. Ben Sambrookís mother Sharon was so concerned about her sonís ailing health that she repeatedly took him back to see six different doctors. Despite him suffering from severe headaches and sickness, each time he was sent home with suggestions to take Calpol and even to eat a biscuit before bed. It was only due to his motherís persistence that Ben, now 11, was eventually referred for a scan which showed a large golf ball sized aggressive tumour at the front of his brain. He had a six hour operation to remove the tumour, followed by six months of gruelling chemotherapy and has now made a full recovery, much to his parents relief. A scan in March this year finally gave him the all clear and doctors have said there is no sign of the tumour coming back.
