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.
16,000 people each year are diagnosed with a brain tumour.
Brain tumours kill more children than any other cancer.
73% of brain tumour deaths occur in those under 75 compared to 47% for other cancers.
Brain tumours receive less than 1% of national spend on cancer research.
Brain cancer incidence is rising: 23% higher for men and 25% higher for women in 2012 than in 1970.
Brain cancer deaths are also rising, unlike most other cancers - these rose 10% for women and 15% for men from 1970 to 2011.

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.

"There was never any question that the event might be cancelled. I think the last time it happened was in the 1920s when the show was on Pitchcroft at Worcester after the river flooded."
Although a few events have had to be cancelled, the majority of the show has so far gone to plan.
The Three Counties Show runs from 15 to 17 June.
