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.
MY SINGING DAUGHTER NEEDS NEW LUNGS.

THIS is the amazing little boy whose life was saved after doctors used superglue to mend a vessel in his brain. Little Charlie Lane was at risk of dying from a fatal blood clot when doctors decided to carry out the unusual procedure. They used the special glue to block a swollen blood vessel and reduce the blood flow around his brain. 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 )

‘Its the fat lady at the door,’ shouted the child to his mum. And thats what I was known as to everyone on my door to door round. I was a saleswoman, selling insurance services by banging on people’s front doors. I worked hard at my job and I was good at it. But I was still the ‘fat lady’ at the front door. ( clarke )

Most women expect to put on a few stone when pregnant and they hide their growing stomachs under maternity clothes. But not Monica Martinsen, who managed to lose a staggering eight stone during her pregnancy. She was losing so much weight each month in a desperate desire to shed her bulk, that she didn’t even realise she was pregnant until she only a few weeks away from giving birth. Mrs Martinsen, 33, who runs her own IT company with husband Jonas, 33, was a massive 22 stone when she had a gastric bypass operation in a bid to lose weight. Over the next eight months she shed a staggering eight stone - and it was only when she had lost the weight that she discovered she had an unexpected baby bump underneath. Eight weeks later she gave birth to her son Gustav, now four months old.

OLA Morgan has to bravely ride her bike with no arms - as callous thieves stole her special electronic arm. Ola, ten, was fitted with the prosthetic arm seven years ago after being born without a left arm as an aftermath of Chenobyl. But in December she went to school and the arm was taken out of her schoolbag - much to the horror of her mother Julie, 38. Now brave Ola is having to fundraise herself, by doing sponsored bike rides, in order to raise the funds needed to buy her a new arm. Mrs Morgan, a full time carer, who has also just been diagnosed with cancer, said: ‘Ola went to school that morning with her arm, and later, it was taken out of her schoolbag. ‘I’m sure it was just some children having a joke. But we’ve never found the arm since, and it really is a lifeline for her.
