Holly's brave fight inspires others

Four-year-old Holly Kitchen is beating the odds and fighting a rare and life-threatening genetic disease - Trisomy 9 mosaic.

People that have any form of Trisomy are born with a whole or partial third copy of a chromosome, instead of the expected two.

Inspired by Holly's story, her family - who live in Bootle, Merseyside, are setting up a charitable trust in her honour.

And her brother Louis has created a moving video about Holly and telling her story.
