There is a great story on facebook today about Hayley and her daughter Holly talking about the moment that doctors turned off Holly's life support machine as a baby through to her fabulous 16th birthday party.

Hayley talks about the fight to care for her daughter at home as well as her abseiling and zip lining.  You can watch the video here on the 5live facebook page.

What do you think? Have you had a similar experience to Hayley and Holly?  As the parent of a disabled child, have you ever had to fight and push to live the life your family wants?

Tell us about your experiences :)
