"In May 1997, I was born with Total Hirschsprungs disease. I was in Hospital for the first 6 months of my life. Mum and Dad were trained to look after me with all the medical equipment needed. I was in and out of Hospital but managed to do other things like going on holiday with my family and going to school. In 2004 I became very unwell and spent 18 months in Hospital in lots of pain, it was very boring. The doctors said I needed a transplant. In November 2005 I had a bowel transplant at Birmingham Hospital. I was home 26 days later (breaking the record for getting out quickly) I enjoyed meeting the Arsenal team. I became part of the local amateur dramatic society with my dad and brother. Sadly in 2009 my bowel rejected. I was really unwell, I had to have another transplant. A painful year later this happened. Again I managed to get out of hospital quickly. After another 6 months of isolation was able to return to school to do the things I like to do. I would love to be involved with the London 2012 Games somehow and have followed it on TV. I am hoping to take part in the transplant games this summer with the Birmingham hospital team."
