Lexi - Mae Celebrates Unlikely First Birthday

A young Wigan girl born with a condition doctor's said "wasn't compatible with life" has continued to defy the odds an is today celebrating her first birthday.

Lexi-Mae Brown was born with Edwards Syndrome - a genetic condition meaning she's born with an extra copy of chromosome 18.

Most babies don't survive birth.

Her mum Lyndsey has told Wish FM it's an amazing milestone, "We were told there was no way that she would make it to a month old, let alone a year.

"So much has happened in that year, probably the worst but one of the best of our lives because we've still got her here, but we have been through so much and now she's the big 1 and I can't believe it!"
