When Tom Ray booked a routine dental appointment 20 years ago, little did he know he would end up fighting for his life. Shockingly, an accidental scratch to his gum resulted in him contracting sepsis - a potentially fatal blood poisoning.
Narrowly escaping death, doctors were forced to amputate not only his arms and legs, but part of Tom’s face as well. This took a terrible toll on his family, with his wife Nic becoming his full-time carer and his (then) two-year-old daughter too scared to look at him.
Now - two decades on - Tom and Nic’s heart-wrenching story has been turned into a powerful film, Starfish. They're here to tell us about seeing their story played out on the big screen and how they managed to escape the clutches or depression to move on with their lives.

Friday 13 November 2015 was a day that shocked the world. At 9.25pm the city of Paris came under fire in what was the most deadly assault on French soil since World War Two. 130 people were gunned down in cold blood during the attacks - 89 of whom were attending a concert at the Bataclan concert venue.
As we approach the anniversary we speak to Antoine Leiris, whose wife Helene was killed in the atrocities and who made an emotional tribute to his wife’s killers with a letter posted on Facebook that said “You will not have my hate”. Having now written a book under the same name, Antoine tells us what life is like without his wife, if life in Paris has changed since that night and how he is preparing for the day when his son asks him what happened to his mum.
Cameron Lindsay was a fit and healthy 11-year-old boy celebrating a place at grammar school when a sinister infection struck. He went from being a straight-A student, leading his local cricket team and singing in his school choir to wanting to kill himself with knives and developing violent tics.
His condition, PANDAS, or exorcist syndrome as it is also known, has left his mother, Natasha, feeling like her little boy was possessed by the devil.
She's launched a fundraising campaign to enable Cameron to get more tests and drug therapy in America, and to establish the PANDAS foundation in Northern Ireland to help raise more awareness of the condition and to support other parents.
Natasha joins us to discuss how his illness has turned the family’s life into a living hell and how she believes that controversial plasma therapy would bring him back from the brink.
