A former Barnsley College student who was told she had only months to live at birth has completed a charity skydive with her mum.
Kathrin Baldry, 20, was diagnosed with a rare liver disease called Biliary Atresia as a baby. At the time her family was told she would only have 18 months to live.
She has suffered with jaundice and tiredness and says she has had her 'fair share' of hospitalisations.
She battled with her illness during her studies and had to sit her GCSE English exam at home.
Kathrin, of Norwood Drive, Barugh Green, underwent a liver transplant aged 16 and was named Barnsley College's student of the year for her grit and determination.
She is now studying for a teaching qualification at Edge Hill University.
At the end of last month, she plunged 15,000ft to raise money for the Children's Liver Foundation and was joined by her mum Susan, 51.
"It was fast and cold and it was quite scary but we enjoyed it," Kathrin said.
"When I touched the ground it was relief but you also felt like you had done a marathon because it takes the breath out of you."
Kathrin said she is feeling stronger since the transplant and the sky dive was a special experience for her to share with her mum.
"I've always wanted to live a full life because my donor gave me a second chance to live my life to the best I can. A sky dive was always something I wanted to do so I thought 'why not?'"
