The phone rang. Instinctively I knew it was my mum - whom I hadn’t spoken to for nearly 50 years, ever since she had given me up for adoption. What I heard next sent my world crashing around me. I’d traced mum and now she didn’t want to know. She’d had another daughter Gill, a year after me, and she didn’t want her or her grandchildren finding out about me. I was devastated. Mum had given me up once when I was a baby, and now she was giving me up too. It was too much to take in. ( roberts )

THIS is the amazing brave little girl who broke her legs an unbelievable SIX times whilst she was still in her mother’s womb. Tiny Caitlin Gault then broke her legs a seventh time whilst her mother was in labour, before she was finally delivered weighing 7Ib9. A week after her birth, a scan showed the numerous fractures, and doctors diagnosed her with brittle bone disease. Her bones are so thin that they are like paper - and since her birth she has broken her legs a further SEVENTEEN times. But brave Caitlin has now battled to take the steps that doctors said she would never do.

THIS is the little boy who lives entirely on chocolate flakes. Nine year old Dylan Lowes hadn’t eaten for nine years after being born with kidney problems. But his family were amazed when earlier this year, he picked up a chocolate flake and ate it - the first thing he had ever eaten since birth. ( lowes )

WHEN our 19th wedding anniversary was looming, I knew I wasn’t going to be stuck for ideas this year for a present to get my husband Keith. I was about to give him the ultimate gift anyone could give another person - the gift of life. Just days before our anniversary, I was going under the surgeons knife to donate my own kidney to Keith. When my kidney was put into him, he was absolutely thrilled and told me it was the best present I could have ever given him. ( woods )

My sister Vicci and I had always been close growing up. But when I needed a lifesaving bone marrow transplant, Vicci was desperate to help. ‘Let me be your donor Clare,’ she pleaded. ‘Let me help you.’ So Vicci selflessly underwent a procedure to take her own stem cells out of her body, and they were put into my body. It was my only chance to beat leukaemia. ( strain )

The words were burning into my ears. I’d switched on the radio and I was listening to a woman talking about kidney transplants. Her own son had died seven years previously and she had decided to donate his organs because he’d carried a donor card. But I couldn’t get the date of the accident out of my head - the 28th October 1984. It was only a couple of days before a kidney donor had been found for me. My first kidney transplant had failed and I had been put back on the list. Then at the end of October 1984, I’d got the call that we’d been waiting for. A kidney donor had been found. But this boy had died at the same hospital that I knew my kidney had come from - Hereford General Hospital. Surely it was too much of a coincidence. ( betty )

Just a few days after my world fell apart after I was diagnosed with cancer, the doctor called me back into his office. ‘I have some more news for you,’ he said. My heart sank. I couldn’t take any more bad news. Trying to come to terms with having cancer at the age of 35 was bad enough. But the doctor’s news was shocking - and completely unexpected. ‘You’re pregnant,’ he said. I could only gasp at him. My husband Garnett, 33, and I had been trying for a couple of years to start a family and nothing had happened. I had started to think that perhaps I would never be a mum at all. But now I was being told I was actually pregnant, after all these months of trying. But it was just a few days after I’d been told I had cancer. ( bell )

The doctors words were ringing in my ears. ‘I’m very sorry, but you have cancer.’ I just couldn’t believe it was happening. Not so soon after losing my youngest sister Sue to a brain tumour. We had only lost Sue wo years before. Now me. ‘What am I going to tell mum,’ I whispered to my husband Stuart, 43. ( gasson , twins )

I touched the lump on the side of my neck. It was hard and painful, the size of a walnut and when I touched it it made the side of my face go numb. I was worried about it. I’d had it for four years and already the hospital had operated to remove it once, but had removed the wrong gland, so it was still there. My fiance Barry, now 27, was worried too. It was only a month before our wedding, but I knew I had to have it looked at again. The GP referred me to hospital and once again I went under the surgeon’s knife. And when I woke up, this time there was no mistake. ‘I’m sorry but its a very rare cancer of the ear,’ said the surgeon. I was filled with horror. It had allowed to grow inside my ear for three years without any treatment. I’d been to the doctors more times than I could remember - but each time they had said it was just a swollen gland.

My husband James and I looked at the packet of Viagra that we both held in our hands. I was nervous - I’d never taken anything like this before. But we were desperate to have a baby. I’d already suffered five miscarriages - lost five of our babies that we had so longed for. And I’d heard that Viagra could help a woman concieve, so James and I had both decided to take one, to give us a double chance of finally concieving the baby we had longed for.
