A singer from Selly Oak, Birmingham, nearly died twice and was put into an induced coma after suffering the flu.
Johnny Normal, 47, suffered two cardiac arrests, a stroke, liver and kidney failure because of the virus.
His condition was so serious that his wife Andrea and daughters Olivia, 15, and ten year-old Eve were told to say their goodbyes.
The singer, who has toured with the likes of Adam Ant, was diagnosed with a flu and chest infection in March.
As he was treated at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, in Edgbaston, it also emerged he had pneumonia in both lungs, liver and kidney failure and was put in an induced coma.
He was then transferred to Glenfield Hospital, in Leicester, for specialist treatment called ECMO, which carries out the actions of the lungs.
As he finally began to recover, he was transferred to Warwick Hospital for more treatment.
Johnny is now raising money for the ECMO team at Glenfield Hospital as a way of thanking them for saving his life.
