Tiny Lynlee Doemer is lucky to be alive after being born twice: once for life-saving surgery, and again when she was full term.

Mum Margaret discovered that her daughter had a rapidly growing tumor growing out of her tailbone which was robbing her baby's blood supply.

So at 23 weeks she underwent surgery for heart failure and little Lynlee was removed from the uterus for a five hour surgery to remove the tumour.

She was placed back inside to finish growing and was born at 36 weeks.
