In 2011, Channel 4 aired the documentary Turtle Boy, about five-year-old Didier Montalvo, from Colombia.
Didier had a large growth on his back called a Congenital Melanocytic Neavus (CGM), which resembled the shell of a turtle. The documentary filmed him receiving medical care in South America from UK based CMN specialists.
Three years on and Didier's life has been transformed by the surgery. He is now over in the UK for the first time ever to meet other children suffering with the condition.

In under a week we have seen two shocking stories hit the headlines. Last week, a group of rogue builders were jailed after they conned vulnerable victims, including an elderly dementia patient, out of more than £1 million. Then, over the weekend, news emerged that an 89-year-old woman has been conned out of £100,000 by scammers posing as bank officials and police.
As much as we hate to believe it to be true, it seems that there are still groups of unscrupulous people preying on the vulnerable elderly members of society. So how can we protect the elderly people in our lives? How can they help themselves? And what kind of scams should they be looking out for? Consumer queen, Alice Beer, joins us now to tell us more.
When a local motorcycle club raised £3,500 for a little girl called Ashanti with a debilitating terminal illness, her mother Phoebe Smith was naturally delighted. Delight soon turned to devastation however when it transpired that Ashanti's own father Albi Elliot (whom Phoebe was separated from) spent the money on himself, leaving her dreams of a holiday to Florida in tatters. He is now serving three years in jail.
Phoebe Smith joins us today to tell of her pain as well as her joy after a national newspaper who, on hearing about the story, paid for her and 11-year-old Ashanti to make the trip to America so that Ashanti could fulfill her lifelong dream to swim with dolphins.
He rose to fame as one quarter of JLS but Oritsé Williams actually became a popstar for a reason you might not expect - to help support his mum who was diagnosed with MS a few years earlier.
Aged just 12 Oritsé became a young carer, and as a subject close to his heart he strove for a year to make a documentary about young carers - the 'silent army' all over Britain.
Just as he was about to give up and put his work on YouTube, Channel 4 commissioned his documentary. He's here now to talk about his own experiences and the amazing children he met whilst making the programme.

Agony aunt Denise Robertson joins Jane Keeper from the charity Refuge to take calls from viewers who are suffering from domestic abuse, or are worried that a loved one or friend maybe being hurt by a spouse.
First up, Rachel rings for advice from Denise and Jane.
Full-time mum Julie Mullen thought she'd found the man of her dreams when she met Martin Dark in 2012. But he went from charming and attentive to cruel and abusive - eventually stabbing her at her home following their break up in 2013.
Now, almost a year afterwards, Julie explains why it's so important for victims to speak out about emotional and physical abuse before it's too late. She joins us alongside Jane Keeper, Director of Operations at Refuge.
It's worrying. I made it clear I didn't want to be part of it.
Last week, shocking images surfaced of a teenage girl performing sex acts on 24 men in a club in Magaluf for cheap alcohol.
After the video went viral, more stories of young tourists being 'shamed' into degrading themselves during holiday bar crawls surfaced, including a video showing tour group Carnage 'shaming' a young girl into performing a sex act in a club.
Geordie Shore's Jay Gardner was at the club where the original video was filmed and can even be seen rejecting the teenager, he says that he was 'disgusted' by the behaviour of onlookers. Reporter Jessica Boulton witnessed the second video and says that lewd behaviour on holiday can lead to something far more dangerous.
