Morecambe girl Hannah just wants to be home for Christmas

“ALL I want for Christmas is... a new stomach.” These are the words of brave Hannah Westworth, who suffers from gastroparesis (a paralysed stomach).

Hannah was in a critical condition eight weeks ago, and on the brink of death after her body rejected a feeding tube, but thankfully she is now back at home with her family in Morecambe.

“I just want to be at home for Christmas instead of hospital,” said 20-year-old Hannah.

“I don’t want to be as ill as I have been. I’ve asked for a stomach for Christmas. As long as I’m at home and not in amazingly bad pain, I’m just happy to be there and not in hospital.”
