AFTER a staggering 23 years of trying for a baby, Tracey Hibbert thought she would never be a mum. Mrs Hibbert and her husband Stephen had tried IVF treatment, fertility drugs and had suffered an ectopic pregnancy -  and she had even been on a diet to lose more than ten stone in their desperate quest. The couple’s agony had continued when Mrs Hibbert did fall pregnant and had given birth to twins in December 2006 who had tragically died at four hours old after they were born too early. When Mrs Hibbert eventually fell pregnant after 23 years of heartbreak, doctors decided to STITCH her baby into her womb to try and stop her being delivered early too.

THIS is the brave little girl who has beaten FOUR brain tumours - after doctors told her parents she just had months to live. When doctors discovered the fourth tumour growing in Abi Thornton’s brain, they said they couldn’t operate and warned her parents to expect the worse. But brave Abi has fought on - and against all the doctors expectations - the tumours have now shrunk and she is living a normal life. Her mother Jacqui Thornton said: ‘We really can’t believe that Abi is still with us after the doctors told us we only had months left with her. ‘I couldn’t bear the thought of losing her, and had planned to make her last months as happy as possible, but she has refused to give up. ‘Now doctors have said the tumours are shrinking and she is back living a normal life. It really is a miracle.’

A BOY who was decapitated after a racing car crash has made a remarkable return to the racing track after the accident which doctors said should have killed him. Chris Stewart, now 14, suffered an injury so severe that it is termed the ‘hangman’s injury’ - where his head was effectively severed from his neck - in the crash two years ago. Doctors gave him just a seven per cent chance of survival before carrying out a risky operation to reattach his skull to his spinal cord using titanium plates and screws. Only six people worldwide are known to ever survived such an injury, and Chris has now made medical history by becoming the only person in the world to have ever properly recovered from it. And he is now back between the wheel of a racing go-kart, despite doctors not knowing whether he would ever walk again after the accident. His mother Debbie Stewart, 43, a financial advisor, said: ‘I was so nervous when he got behind the wheel for the first time since his accident.

WHEN Mandy Atherton was given a life saving bone marrow transplant by her sister she had no idea just how precious a gift it would turn out to be. Because Mrs Atherton has just battled the potentially deadly swine flu virus thanks to the transplant from her sister. If she hadn’t had the lifesaving transplant, her own immune system - which had been virtually destroyed through leukaemia - doctors say her body wouldn’t have been able to cope with the killer virus. Mother of two Mrs Atherton, 47, who has two children, Thomas, 13, and Sophie, 14, said: ‘There is no doubt that Tracy has saved my life twice over.

MOST people reach for a glass of water when they are thirsty - but just a few sips of water could kill little Alfie Allen. His vocal cords cords have been paralysed in an extremely rare reaction to chemotherapy drugs used to treat his leukaemia. It means that his windpipe doesn’t close properly when eating and drinking, and any fluid he takes in just goes straight into his lungs, which then flood. Alfie literally can’t have a simple drink of water - and instead his mother Sophie Burden has to pump water into his stomach via a tube.

I had never really noticed the mole on my shoulder, as far as I could remember it had always been there. But when my daughter Abby was about four months older, mum said to me she thought it had gone darker. ‘Go to see the doctor about it,’ she kept nagging me. But I just kept pushing it to the back of my mind. I had a lot to think about bringing my daughter up. I’d given birth to her at 19 and my partner Andrew Simpson, 25, and I had been thrilled when she was born in September 2003.

WHEN Sara Churm was pregnant with her third baby she was desperate for a water birth. But when she asked her midwife about the possibility of using a birthing pool at the hospital, she was met with a chuckle. The midwife told her that due to the speed of her previous two deliveries, there would not even be time to fill up the birthing pool - as she had delivered her first baby in 21 minutes and her second in just 16 minutes. And the prediction proved right - as Miss Churm went on to delivery her baby Declan in just 50 minutes. It meant that she has given birth to all three of her babies - in a total of just 87 MINUTES.

I couldn’t believe it as I looked at the computer screen in horror. There was a picture of me from when I had been out clubbing with my friends the night before that had been posted on a clubbing website. The picture had been taken by a stranger, and it showed me, with all my 19 stone bulk, larger than life in an illuminious green clubbing outfit. I looked full of life, grinning at the camera, but it was the comments underneath that were so hurtful. ‘Yuk’ said one, referring to my photograph. ‘’Jabba the Hut,’ said another. Jabba the Hut?
