Lisa's epilepsy is so severe it could kill her and the frequency of her seizures means she is virtually housebound. Neurosurgeons at Liverpool's Walton Centre offer her the option of brain surgery that represents her last hope of leading a more normal life with her husband and young daughter. Simon has a tumour growing on his pituitary gland that is pressing on his optic nerves and needs an emergency operation to remove it and save his eyesight, but the procedure is highly intricate and could damage his vision.
