THE girls at school were having a beauty competition, and their words stung me. ĎThe girls are judged on how beautiful they are - so itís not fair that you should be involved,í they told me. Its been like that all my life. People staring at me when I walked down the street, and teasing and taunting at school. Teenage boys laughing at me as I walked down the street. But there is always one thing that Iíve done - and thats hold my head up high. Its what my parents taught me right from being little. ĎStand your ground,í mum told me. ĎAnd never run away - face everything head on. I was burnt in a car fire and the flames causes burns to my face and hands and Iíve spent 18 years having countless skin graft operations on both my face and hands. But Iíve always held my head up high. And it doesnít get me down. Its part of who I am, and Iíve never let myself get bothered or upset by peopleís comments. (ofarrell o'farrell)

WHEN Alison Morrisís husband Ian was struck down with leukaemia doctors told him the treatment would leave him infertile. So the couple decided to have his sperm frozen to give them a chance of having a family in the future. They had their first try in 1999, but it failed, and so did their next two attempts and Mrs Morris thought she would never be a mother. But in Feburary last year, they had a fourth try - with Mr Morrisís sperm which by then had been frozen for an amazing FOURTEEN years.

WHEN little Lily Slater lay in her hospital bed with a brain tumour, doctors knew what the best medicine was for her. They asked her mother Shirley Lydon to bring in Lilyís twin sister Willow to help her recovery, and told her that it could be the best possible medicine. So Willow arrived at South Tyneside General Hospital and spent every spare minute with her twin sister - and the doctors even arranged for her to stay overnight with Lily too. And it seems like a twin bond has proved the treatment for Lily, four, - as she has now beaten her brain tumour.

I looked at the table in front of me, and smiled a secret smile to myself. I was almost bubbling over with excitement and anticipation. Piled on the table was a whole loaf of bread, an entire tub of icecream, packets of biscuits and a whole cake. I was about to eat the whole lot, and I just couldnít wait. Iíd made sure I was on my own in the house - it all had to be done in secret so no-one could see my binges. Then I would go to the bathroom cabinet and take out a handful of laxatives to get rid of all the food that I had eaten. I had spent 20 years of doing this to myself and I knew that I had to do something about it. ( kennish )

WHEN James White was born he was so premature that he fitted into the palm of his fatherís hand. He hadnít grown in the womb and doctors offered his mother an emergency caesarian at 29 weeks as he only had a few days left to live. It would jeopardise the life of his twin sister Harriet , but Mrs White decided to have both her babies delivered to give them both a small chance of survival. Both the babies survived the birth, but when tiny James was born he only weighed 1Ib8 compared to his sister who weighed twice as much at 3Ib4. He was the length of a pen, his skin was translucent and his ears were still fused to his head.

THIS is the brave little boy who is saving up to buy himself a new pair of ears. Ten year old Tommy Leech was born with no ears, and has to endure taunts of Ďchicken nuggetí ears as he has grown up. Now his family are fundraising to buy him a new pair of ears, whch will be constructed by a specialist surgeon in Germany. During the complicated operations, which will cost a total of £50,000, surgeons will use cartilage from his bottom ribs to mould him a new ear shape and then use skin grafts to cover the cartilage. They will then even open his ear canals in an attempt to restore his hearing and throw away his hearing aids.

She also bought a home gym and worked out for three hours a day, and started a liquid only diet. But nothing worked, so in despair she visited an our of hours doctor who referred her straight to her local hospital, and there doctors made an astonishing discovery. She had a massive ovarian cyst - that weighed the same as a two year old child.

I was in the shower when I felt the hard lump in my breast. It was only the size of a pea, but I could feel it distinctively under the skin. ĎIíve found a lump,í I said to my husband James, 33, a physicist, as I came out of the bathroom. I wasnít worried about it. James and I were on our honeymoon in Australia. We had got married in August 2006 and our honeymoon had been wonderful. It was two days before we were due to fly home that I had discovered the lump. But I was only 29, so the thoughts of breast cancer never crossed my mind. I thought it was just a small cyst or something harmless. ( wild )
