TO her parents, 12 year old Martha Sirotkin is a walking miracle. Due to a terrible muscular disease, she has spent part of her young life completely twisted, only able to lie on the floor. But thanks to pioneering surgery where surgeons inserted electrical stimulators into her brain, Martha has now straightened out and can lead a normal life. From only being able to lie on her back, Martha has even amazed her parents by being able to play rugby at her school. Her mother Sheila, 54, a former teacher, who lives in London with husband Ray, 55, also a teacher, and son Jamie, ten, said: ‘We have finally got our daughter back and we can’t thank the surgeons enough.

Kelly, who is now 16, had been born with cystic fibrosis - but that had never stopped her singing. Right from being little, her voice was sweet and clear, and she was always singing. Cystic fibrosis damages the lungs, and many sufferers find it hard to breathe. But it didn’t stop Kelly from singing. I used to call her my little pied piper - as when she started to sing, people would stop and listen. Everyone just falls in love with Kelly when they hear her voice - it is just magical. But now time is running out for Kelly. She needs a new pair of lungs, or else my little songbird wil be silenced for ever. But there is one problem. Kelly has got a bug growing in her lungs, which means the doctors can’t carry out a lung transplant, as it would kill her. But she won’t survive either without a transplant, so we are just hoping the bug clears up in time for her to have a transplant. But even though she desperately needs a transplant, it still doesn’t stop Kelly from singing.

The operation was a success and Charlie, 18 months, has recovered at his home in Stockton on Tees, County Durham.

I was shocked as the doctor held out the illustration infront of me - it was a child who resembled prehistoric man, taken thousands of years ago before man had developed properly. ‘This is what your child could be like, and be unable to walk or talk.’ warned the doctor. It was a horrific picture and such a shock. I thought I’d just given birth to a healthy baby, but now the doctors were telling me that I didn’t. But I could never imagine my little daughter Zoe ending up like the creature in the photograph. It was too horrific to even imagine. ( dixon )
