A mum who ignored advice from doctors to switch off her daughter's life support machine has described her girl as a 'miracle baby'. Little Evie Shearer Fanning was taken into hospital with a routine chest infection when she was only eight-months-old when her heart suddenly stopped

A mum who ignored advice from doctors to switch off her daughter's life support machine has described her girl as a 'miracle baby'.

Little Evie Shearer Fanning was taken into hospital with a routine chest infection when she was only eight-months-old when her heart suddenly stopped.

The toddler was diagnosed with an extremely rare muscle-wasting disease, spinal muscular atrophy, leaving her paralysed from the neck down.

She also needs a machine 24 hours a day to help her breathe.

Her condition was so bleak that doctors advised devastated mum Abbi Shearer, 21, to sign a form agreeing to turn her daughter's life support machine off.

But Abbi, from Anfield, Liverpool, refused and told doctors her daughter, who is now 16-months-old, would battle through against the odds.

Abbi said: "I always feared the worst because doctors told me she would probably never talk and that she'd have a really poor standard of life.

"To be told by professionals that the best thing to do was to say goodbye to your daughter was heartbreaking.

"But I never wanted to sign those forms to turn off her life support - that would have been like admitting defeat.

Yes I bet she was. Sometimes you just "know" though, don't you....?
Hope that baby keeps bringing her joy and happiness.
I love a happy ending x
