See MASONS story MNLIFE. Doctors told the family she wouldn’t survive – but she defied all the odds. Just five months ago she was fighting for her life. Rushed to Colchester hospital after falling ill on a family holiday. Bella was put in intensive care. Doctors thought she may have Biotinidase deficiency. A rare genetic condition which prevents the body absorbing vital nutrients. Something which occurs in only one in every 60,000 births. After seven days doctors made the difficult decision to turn off the life support machine. But 20 minutes later she started kicking and screaming, fighting for her life. She’d started responding to treatment.
