Dancing all over the world

***EXCLUSIVE*** COLORADO, USA: This couple have filmed themselves dancing the Shag in famous and unusual places all across America - from the Golden Gate Bridge to an abandoned school. The quirky video shows Kendall and Ronnie Roderick dancing the famous 20th century swing dance in unusual places including in a supermarket whilst shopping. Impressive photos show the couple dancing in the snow with Kendall wearing nothing but an off-the-shoulder green dress and a silhouette of them dancing in front of the twilight sky. Graphic designer, Kendall Roderick (30) from Colorado, USA, began her fascination with dancing in 2005. But it wasn’t until September 2016 that she discovered her speciality, which is the 1930s Collegiate Shag, a partner dance done primarily to uptempo swing and pre-swing jazz music which can go at the speeds of 250 to 300 beats per minute (BPM). However, she struggled to find a partner to dance with, so her husband, Ronnie (33), agreed to learn the dance with her. On top of being taught by Kendall, Ronnie took some private lessons to perfect the art. Over time, they have been taking their skills to various American states to encourage other dancers to take up the Collegiate Shag and have since visited towns from the 1800s and theme parks from the 1920s. With 47,000 followers on Instagram, Kendall and Ronnie are trying to bring the dance forward 90 years - and it’s working.

Woman paralysed after her mum fell asleep at the wheel becomes a catwalk model

***EXCLUSIVE*** WHANGAREI, NEW ZEALAND: Woman paralysed after her mum FELL ASLEEP at the WHEEL becomes a CATWALK MODEL - after her own doctor told her to consider ASSISTED SUICIDE. In November 1995, model and PhD student, Claire Freeman (41) from Whangarei, New Zealand, was in the car being driven by her mum, Barbara (70), with her sister, Beth (43) who was next to her mum in the front of the car on a two-hour drive to Auckland. The long journey caused her mum to fall asleep whilst driving causing the car to veer off the road and roll down a cliff crashing it on impact. Claire sustained a severe spinal cord injury at C5/6 level. She was flown to Auckland Base Hospital by helicopter, where she was placed in an induced coma for two weeks. She spent a year in and out of hospital and was given less than a 10 per cent chance of surviving. Despite doctors’ doubts, she made it through the three surgeries. She had an operation to stabilise her neck, a 14-hour surgery where a screw was placed into her spinal cord that caused further damage that caused paralysis in her wrist and triceps. She was declared quadriplegic (also known as tetraplegic), meaning she was paralysed from the neck down and has been using a wheelchair ever since. Growing up with a physical disability and using a wheelchair made Claire’s life difficult and she felt like a „freak”. In 2010, there was an earthquake where she was studying in Christchurch and again in 2011 which triggered post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) from remembering the accident. The trauma she felt caused her to attempt suicide four times within a five-year period, each time she fell into a coma. For 15 years she developed depression and she felt disconnected from the outside world, so she decided to create a page on Instagram, where she could talk to people. In February 2018, she was approached by an Italian modelling agency called lulia Barton, which set off her career and has since been on the catwalk in Milan for fashion week. She says that her mum has been her biggest supporter throughout her journey, despite being the one who was driving the car at the time of the accident and has been her rock through it all.

MEDICAL MIRACLE: British boy ‘beats incurable leukaemia’ with pioneering treatment in Singapore

***EXCLUSIVE*** A six-year-old boy who won the nation’s heart in his battle against leukaemia is coming home - six months after being declared cancer free. Oscar Saxelby-Lee was diagnosed with an aggressive blood cancer in December 2018 after his parents noticed unusual bruising on his legs. Doctors gave him months to find a stem cell match to save his life which led to parents Olivia Saxelby, 25, and Jamie Lee, 28, launching a UK-wide appeal for donors. Last March a record-breaking 4,855 volunteers queued in the freezing rain after Oscar’s Pitmaston Primary School in Worcester opened as a testing centre. In total more than 10,000 people were tested across the UK until a match was finally found. But months later, his family, of St Johns, Worcester, faced further anguish when the cancer returned. But after a crowdfunding campaign raised £600,000, his family flew him to Singapore for pioneering treatment not available on the NHS. Oscar became only the second child in the world to undergo CAR-T therapy before having a second bone marrow transplant using stem cells from dad Jamie.

Ever growing tumour

***EXCLUSIVE*** KANSAS, USA: When this boy was born with a condition that left his face covered in tumours that would NEVER stop growing, doctors warned he wouldn't see his first birthday - but ten years later he is proving them all wrong. In 2009, assistant, Jane Fergus (47) and her husband, Fred (50) from Kansas, USA, were excited to find out they were expecting a baby boy. Throughout her pregnancy, Jane had no idea that there was anything medically wrong with their son. So, they were shocked when shortly after her normal birth in August 2009, their new-born son, Frankie (10), was rushed to the intensive care unit (ICU) due to abnormal breathing. He spent six days in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) before he was sent home. Despite expressing her concerns over his health to multiple physicians, Jane was told that his breathing was normal. During an eye test with an ophthalmologist, Frankie was diagnosed with glaucoma and he needed several surgeries to treat it. When he was one month old, after a routine eye surgery, his oxygen levels did not return to normal. He was rushed back to be re-intubated until his breathing could be stabilised. A few months later in December 2009, he was referred to an ear, nose and throat specialist, where the couple heard about neurofibromatosis for the first time. A short while later, he would be diagnosed with neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1), a genetic condition that causes tumours to grow along the nerves. Doctors feared that he would never be able to talk or walk due to his condition and may not live to the age of one. The news devastated Jane and Fred but they were determined to give Frankie the best care they could to prolong his life.

One heart-warming photograph captured the moment a man was released from the intensive care unit as nurses lined the hallway to clap and celebrate his recovery. In another poignant image, a medical professional is seen holding the hand of a COVID-19 patient as she offered reassurance through eye contact due to the restraints of her personal protective equipment.

Backflip cheetah

***EXCLUSIVE*** MASAI MARA NATIONAL RESERVE, KENYA: FLIP YOU FOR IT: Photographer captures a boisterous young cheetah performing a backflip as it chowed down on this poor impala's head, whilst his friends were left with the tail. One image captured the moment a three-foot-tall adolescent cheetah launched itself upside-down using an impala’s antlers, leading many to believe that the cub had been impaled. In another photograph, the same cheetah was caught twisting its body around an antler as it began to join the others in tucking into its meal. Photographer, Lucy Johnson (39) from London, UK, was in the Masai Mara National Reserve, Kenya, when she came across this acrobatic display. Just 16-yards away, four cheetahs tucked in to their latest catch - the youngest of which was so excited that he did so upside down. As the world’s fastest land animal, cheetahs can run up to speeds of 71 miles-per-hour. Cheetahs stalk their prey using the cover of the Masai Mara’s vegetation - only giving chase when they feel confident enough. Despite their hunting prowess, cheetahs are also the prey of other predators. When a female cheetah is raising her cubs and teaching them to hunt, she will move every few days to keep away from lions and hyenas. Cheetahs do not scavenge so they need to hunt frequently.
