A mum is fighting to save her baby daughter's life by raising money for pioneering treatment available in the US.
Little Lydia Germon, seven months old, defied the odds to be born alive after her mother refused to have a termination.
Lydia has a brain abnormality that has caused her head to swell considerably.
Doctors gave her just 24 hours to live when she was born last October - but the tiny tot has been battling to survive every day since.
Her family hope £50,000 pioneering treatment in the US can give her new hope.
Mum Bethan Germon, 28, has refused to give up on her baby girl.
Renowned neurosurgeon Benjamin Warf is well known in the state of Boston for his work with children suffering from severe hydrocephalus.
Bethan and her husband David Germon, 28, have contacted Dr Warf and believe he can help.
The operation could reduce the fluid in Lydia's brain giving it a chance to grow and improving Lydia's quality of life considerably.
Now the family from Gendros in Swansea have to raise £50,000 to fund the surgery they believe will save their daughter's life.
