BRITAIN’S 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 Sambrook’s mother Sharon was so concerned about her son’s 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 mother’s 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.

WHEN Denise Whetter’s friend needed a life saving kidney transplant, she didn’t hesitate in stepping forward to help. But she had no idea her selfless act would actually end up saving her own life. When doctors carried out tests on her kidneys to see if they would be a suitable match for her friend Martin Duggan, they made an alarming discovery. Miss Whetter actually had a cancerous tumour on her own kidney - which had previously lain undetected.

THIS is the boy whose head is entirely made of METAL. Callum Parkinson was left fighting for his life after being knocked over by a car in June last year. Doctors had to remove both the left and right sides of his skull - leaving only the skin to protect his brain. They then rebuilt his entire skull using titanium plates and now brave Callum has made an amazing recovery. His mum Christine, 48, said: ‘It just seems unbelievable that Callum’s skull is now completely made of metal. ‘It was frightening when he just had the skin to protect his brain. It swelled so much that it caused the skin on the right side of his head to bulge outwards.

THIS is the miracle baby who saved his mothers life - by kicking a cancerous tumour out of her womb. Claire Salter thought she was miscarrying her baby son when she was 19 weeks pregnant. But tests showed that instead it was an aggressive cancer tumour which her unborn baby had dislodged from her womb. Doctors then advised her to terminate the baby to give herself the best chance of survival. But Miss Salter refused - as her unborn baby had saved her life, she couldn’t bring herself to have a termination. Miss Salter, 26, a beautician, said: ‘When the doctors told me it would be risking my life if I didn’t have a termination, I didn’t hesitate. ‘There was no way that I was going to terminate by baby when he had just saved my life by kicking the tumour out of my womb.

For most women childbirth is a shock to their body, but for Nicola Howe it was a bigger shock than most. Her body was so traumatised by giving birth to her daughter Jade, that within seven days of giving birth her hair had completely turned white. Before Jade, now ten, was born, Mrs Howe’s hair was dark brown with not one strand of grey visible. But as she recovered in hospital from her daughter’s traumatic birth, it started to turn white literally overnight. By the time her daughter was seven days old, her hair had completely turned white all over.

WHEN Lisa McKay ballooned to almost 20 stone after getting addicted to the fizzy coke drink she knew she had to take drastic action. She was consuming a staggering twenty cans of coke each day - on top of takeaways and snacks - and at the age of 24 she weighed a massive 19 stone 4. She had to travel using two aeroplane seats and she couldn’t walk more than a few yards without feeling breathless. She was so addicted to the fizzy drinks - which are laden with sugar - that she even woke up at 4am to drink a can. So in August last year she underwent a gastric band operation and has now managed to lose nearly ten stone. And since the operation she has not drunk a single can of coke - despite getting severe withdrawal symptoms due to giving it up.
