Do you have a "disability anniversary"? And is it a good or bad day for you? The Ouch team discuss anniversaries with guests Sofia and her dad Nick.

About our guests

Every year on 17 February, 11-year-old Sofia Crockatt and her family celebrate what they call Bug-busting Day. It's the anniversary of the day Sofia contracted Meningococcal when she was two and when the fight started to make her well. As part of her treatment to stop the "bug" from spreading, she had to lose her left leg below the knee.

The family have chosen to mark that day every year as a positive life-affirming moment rather than let it get on top of them as many good things have come from the experience.

With Damon Rose, Kathleen Hawkins and Lee Kumutat.
