The parents of a five-year-old from Cambridgeshire who were told their daughter would never walk say it's beyond a dream come true to see her making her first steps.
Maya Ratcliffe was born with spina bifida-a condition where the spine does not develop properly, leaving a gap in the spine.
But after a number of operations, the remarkable toddler from Whittlesey near Peterborough has defied medical opinion and has taken her first steps with the help of a walker- and is now aiming to tackle one of the UK’s tallest peaks.
Maya has also battled a swollen brain and meningtitis in her short life.
Nine months ago, she had yet more major surgery - this time to reconstruct both her hips.
Maya and her parents are now planning to climb Mount Snowdon to raise money for spina bifida charity, SHINE.
Maya says she is now on a mission to see the world.
