When we first met Rebekah Dowell in 2009 she weighed 4.5 stone and had little hope for herself, let alone a future of a family.
Now almost 5 years later she's just had a baby girl called Lola.
But she says she would never have been able to - had she not got treatment when she did.
Our Correspondent Mel Barham went back to Liverpool to see how Rebekka and Lola are doing:-
Cannabis farms worth £6.5 million have been uncovered by Merseyside Police during a month long crackdown on organised crime.
In a co-ordinated campaign led by the force's Matrix Serious Organised Crime (MSOC), officers from across Liverpool, Wirral, St Helens, Sefton and Knowsley seized 6,500 plants and dismantled 84 cannabis farms.
More than 160 people have been arrested in connection with growing cannabis and cash totalling £111,000 seized from them.
Officers say the month-long crackdown aimed to damage organised crime networks by seizing drugs they were growing to fund other criminal activities such buying Class A drugs and firearms.
Superintendent Dave Charnock from MSOC said the results showed what could be achieved when the public shared information with the police about drugs in their communities.
A team of medics from the conflict hit Gaza strip are in Liverpool being trained by some of the country's top surgeons.
The Liverpool International Transplant Initiative aims to train medics so that one day the region will have its own transplant unit. Rachel Townsend reports.
