A 'miracle father' from Worcestershire is taking on a new challenge. Ben Lindon became the proud father of a baby girl, despite doctors warning that treatment for a brain tumour would leave him infertile.
Not content with the demands of fatherhood, he's now taking on the three highest peaks in the UK to raise money for charity.
Ben Lindon from Worcestershire, who was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour, went on to father a child despite doctors warning him he would be infertile.
He is now tackling the Three Peaks Challenge to raise money for brain tumour research.
Despite everything I actually feel very lucky. I very quickly decided that the best way to get through the experience would be to lead a much healthier lifestyle and try and focus on others that are worse off than me. I hope to use what was a very difficult and life-threatening experience for me to raise awareness about the woeful lack of funding for research into brain tumours - a disease which kills more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer.
