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.

WHENEVER I tell people that my husband Ray can’t go out in the cold, they don’t believe me. But if Ray goes out in temperatures below 10 degrees, then his nose and his fingers and toes turn blue, and he is at risk of gangrene setting in, which would mean he would have to have them amputated. Ray suffers from cold agglutin disorder - a rare circulation problem that makes the blood sticky when it gets cold. There is no cure for it - apart from keep warm in winter. So from September to March, when Ray goes outside, he has to wear special battery operated gloves and socks which generate heat and keep him war, If he picks our son Ryan, five, up from school, he has to wear a balaclava - and looks just like a bank robber. But we can’t risk him losing his fingers and toes. It all started just after we got married in May 1987. We had been together for two years and had first met when I was 16. I was working as a temporary job in a factory and Ray took no notice of me. He was married and I left the job, thinking I would never bump into his again. ( xmas , christmas , cleveland , weather )

‘Fatty - go home and lose some weight’, the jeers and taunts were ringing around my ears as I walked along the street. I’d been insulted for years, but it never got any easier. I was 34 stone, with a 66 inch waist. I was just enormous. I’d have a good day at work as a debt collector. I got on well with my work colleagues, and for those few precious hours I was allowed to feel normal. But as soon as I stepped out of the door, strangers would hurl insults to me until I got into my front door. And then still people wouldn’t leave me alone. I’d hear the jaunts from outside, from gangs of teenagers, and they would hurl stones at my front door. (King , diet , weight loss )
