WHEN Nadine Walters suffered from cancer twice, doctors told her that it was unlikely she would ever be a mother. She undewent gruelling chemotherapy treatment from the age of 12 through to 18 to battle both Ewing’s sarcoma, and then leukaemia - and at one point was given just three weeks to live. She managed to survive, but then she was told that six years of intensive treatment would have left her infertile. Mrs Walters resigned herself to never being a mother - but amazingly against all the odds she fell pregnant with naturally conceived twins and doctors told her that they had never come across such a miracle before. But then she was told that one of her twins could die in the womb and she was given the choice to terminate him and let his brother survive. But she was determined to give both her little miracles the chance of survival and refused a termination - and now she is the proud mum of both boys.

WHEN Melissa Bowmer was diagnosed with cancer, she started to prepare herself for the gruelling treatment ahead. But she was stopped in her tracks when just a few weeks later her four year old son Llywelyn was diagnosed with cancer too. The Mrs Bowmer made the ultimate sacrifice a mother could possibly make. She delayed starting her own chemotherapy treatment by six months so she could help her son through his treatment.

Now both Mrs Bowner and her son are recovering back home in Swansea and are currently free from the disease.

WHEN Katy Close and her fiance Ryan wanted to set the date for their wedding day - they had very little choice. The last three generations in her family had all married on March 27th - and amazingly all the weddings have taken place exactly THIRTY years apart, and had taken place at the same church. So even though her wedding fell on a Thursday and only 14 guests were able to attend, they set their big day to follow in family footsteps. Mrs Close, 26, a teacher, who lives with husband Ryan, 28, a civil servant, in Selby, North Yorkshire, said: ‘Ryan had proposed to me a few weeks before, and we only had eight months to organise the wedding if we wanted to get married on the 27th March.

WHEN her twin daughter Helen contracted the lifethreatening brain bug meninigitis, Sarah Tomlinson thought she was unlucky. Doctors didn’t know whether tiny Helen, then just seven months old, would pull through as she was in a critical condition. But she battled through and managed to survive the deadly bug, only for her twin sister to contract it the following year. It astounded doctors as the chances of both the twins getting meninigitis separately from each other are a staggering millions to one. They were more likely to win the lottery twice. Both twins have now made a full recovery - despite Georgia getting it for the second time just before the twins’ fourth birthday. Mrs Tomlinson, 36, who lives in Leeds with husband Paul, 40, and their elder daughter Carla, eight, said: ‘ I can’t believe that my twins have managed to beat meninigitis three times between them.

I couldn’t imderstand it. It just wasn’t shaking this flu bug off and I felt dreadful. It was going around our college campus like wildfire and the students were dropping like flies. It was November 2006 and I’d had it for nearly a week now, feeling exhausted with sickness. Then at the end of the week I went downstairs and my mum turned to me. ‘You’ve turned yellow,’ she said. I was lying on the sofa and couldn’t even get up I was so exhausted. ‘You look like Bart Simpson with your yellow face,’ my sister Chloe, 19. told me. ( jones )

WHEN Albie the three-legged goat needed a prosthetic leg, owner Jenny Brown knew exactly who to turn too. Albie had made a miraculous escape from a local abbatoir, but injuries inflicted when he was trussed up with wire in the abbatoir before he made his heroic attempt had nadly infected his leg. Vets battled to save it, but couldn’t, so they had to amputate it. leaving him with just three legs. Poor Albie tried to hop around the field on three legs, but kept having to rest as it was too much of a strain on his other leg and back. So Mrs Brown leapt into action. She knew exactly what to do - after she had lost her own leg at the age of ten to cancer. She contacted the doctor who had made her prosthetic leg, and begged him to help Albie too.

THESE are hospital patients of a most unusual kind - at the world’s only turtle hospital. Wrapped with bandages around their damaged shells, and being tube fed a diet of liquid fish, these are the turtles that have been rescued who otherwise would have died. The turtles fall victims to discarded plastic bags which wrap themselves around their flippers and bodyand are mistakenly eaten as jellyfish. They also get injured by boat propellors, fishing lines and from shark attacks, which cause injuries which they would normally die from.

THESE are the amazing pictures of the world’s only little mermaid girl. Eight year old Shiloh Pepin has undergone more than 150 surgeries so far after she was born with many internal organs missing. She is only of only three children to survive in the world with this condition, but the other two have had successful operations to separate their legs. Shiloh’s parents are waiting for her to make her own decision about whether she wants to have her legs separated, so until then she remains the world’s only mermaid girl. Her father Elmer Pepin, 38, from Maine, USA, said: ‘She scoots around our home on her backside - she can get up the stairs, get onto the sofa, get into bed, anything that other little girls do. She is so determined, we are so proud of her. She’s our incredible little mermaid.’
