A teenager from Romania has returned to the hospital where she had life-changing surgery as a baby.
Cristina Cocur was born with a cleft palate and lip and faced a life isolated from her community.
A couple from Burton Joyce in Nottingham raised over £6000 bring Cristina to the UK treated at Nottingham City Hospital.
She had little chance of receiving treatment in Romania, where she would probably have grown up shunned by her community.
The five hour procedure to repair the cleft palate was successful, and Cristina was soon recovering back on the ward.
After some time recuperating in hospital, Cristina and her family returned to Romania.
As a teenager, she is is studying hard and pursuing a career in IT.
Nearly sixteen years later, Cristina's family have returned to Nottingham.
Cristina has had to have another operation as part of her ongoing treatment, but it also a chance to catch up with those who looked after her so well.
