ad­ver­sity some peo­ple re­ally do be­come an in­spi­ra­tion to oth­ers. To­day’s ET fea­tures some truly amaz­ing peo­ple.

In­trepid doc­tor Chris “Tig­ger” Tar­gett com­pleted a gru­elling 20,000mile mo­tor­bike trip rais­ing thou­sands for char­ity in which he broke two ribs, was robbed three times and fell sick af­ter be­ing bit­ten by ants - a great achieve­ment

For­mer city pub land­lady An­gela Wheeler (48), who is bat­tling ovar­ian can­cer and has been told by doc­tors that she may only have 18 months left to live is fo­cus­ing on cre­at­ing mem­o­ries. Friends and fam­ily are rais­ing money to pro­vide a spe­cial hol­i­day for her and her chil­dren, her brav­ery is ex­tra­or­di­nary and we will do all we can to help her suc­ceed.

The city’s Race for Life event is al­ways mov­ing and this year will be started by in­di­vid­u­als who have faced their own bat­tles.

Mum Joanne Rip­pon was told can­cer would claim her life within a few years, and cre­ated a box of mem­o­ries for her fam­ily to look back on. But she has now signed up for Race for Life af­ter be­ing told she is in re­mis­sion. Lit­tle Jamie Perry is six years old and has fought a coura­geous bat­tle with blad­der can­cer, yet he is renowned for his con­stant smile and de­ter­mi­na­tion.

These are peo­ple whose achieve­ments put ev­ery­day prob­lems into per­spec­tive. They re­ally are an in­spi­ra­tion to us all.
