WHEN Lauren Dixon’s newborn baby daughter refused to drink milk from her right breast, she wasn’t worried. But then when her son Josh was born two years later and she had the same problem, she thought it couldn’t be a coincidence. So she went to hospital where doctors carried out tests and made a shocking discovery. Mrs Dixon, 25, was diagnosed with breast cancer - and her babies had proved to be the two littlest lifesavers who have saved her life.

I had a holiday booked to Thailand with my husband and I was dreading getting on the beach and baring my body. I was a massive 21 stone 4 and the previous year we had also been on holiday to Thailand and all the slim Thai women on the beaches there had put me to shame. Even on the flight over I couldn’t get the seatbelt to fasten, so I’d had to hold it together, just hoping the air stewardess woudn’t spot me. I just couldn’t go through the same hell a year later, so I decided to try and lose a few pounds before we set off. I’d always struggled with my weight, ever since I was a teenager. Even at the age of 13 I was over 15 stone and had to wear size 18 clothes. I didn’t really get teased at school because of it, so I was never embarassed about my weight then.

THIS is the little girl who had to have a bone marrow transplant - to stop her tongue sticking out. Brave Demi Leigh Rodden, three, was born with a rare condition that caused her tongue to swell and stick out of her mouth. People thought she was sticking out her tongue and being rude to them, but the condition had caused her to tongue to swell so much she couldn’t keep it in her closed mouth.

I was filled with dread. My family wanted to go on a cycling holiday, but how could I possibly manage. I’d managed to already shed some of my 27 stone bulk, but how was I ever going to get my leg over a bike saddle. I’d never been able to ride a bike. Even as a child I’d been overweight.

THIS is the baby whose survival has been hailed a miracle after she survived in her mother’s womb - thanks to TWO lifethreatening heart conditions. Tiny Charlotte Litchfield was born with the main arteries in her heart the wrong was round - a condition which was so severe it should have meant she didn’t survive her birth. The condition meant that blood wasn’t being pumped around her body properly and her lungs wouldn’t get any oxygen. But because she also had another lifethreatening condition - a large hole in her heart between her two ventricle chambers - it meant that some oxygenated blood was able to get to her lungs and keep her alive.

WHEN Jason Hallett lay in hospital having his leg amputated he was bowled over by the kindness of nurse Nicki Climmer.

As the weeks went by, they fell in love and after Mr Hallett was released from hospital, they became a couple. Then four years later, in September 2006, Miss Climmer made the ultimate sacrifice for her patient - she gave him one of her own kidneys when he suffered renal failure.

THIS is the brave little boy who has beaten testicular cancer at the age of four. Doctors discovered a tennis ball sized lump in his right testicle in March and since then little Connor has undergone rounds of gruelling chemotherapy treatment to beat the disease. He is only one of a handful of boys under the age of ten who develop the disease each year as it is a cancer more commonly found in men aged 15 to 45. Luckily doctors caught Connor?s cancer early, and now his relieved parents have brought him home from hospital after finishing his treatment. His recovery is made all the more remarkable by his own mum Kimberly Anderson beating cancer twice herself - once when she was Connor?s age. Mum Kimberley, 25, said: ?I never imagined that someone as young as Connor could even get testicular cancer.
