A schoolboy from Essex, whose odds of survival were just 30% when he was born, is thriving and helping others with a similar condition more than a decade later.
Callum Axford spent the first 8 months of his life in hospital, born prematurely with a hole in his diaphragm, a condition known as Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia. His chances of survival were as low as 30%.
Now 10 years on, Callum is thriving. He lives in Benfleet near Southend with his parents Faye and Carl and his 6 year old sister.
