Heather's son Eli, 11, is now running to raise donations for the Edinburgh charity Held in Our Hearts, which supported the family in their time of need.Heather said: "It's still very raw.

With her tiny bowels, once it set in, there was no going back. The hospital wanted to perform an ileostomy to see if they could fit a stoma bag and see if they could retain some of her intestines."But when they took her for the operation, there was nothing left, none of her small bowel left, it was all gone.
