Presenter

     

Corinne Hutton had an irritating cough in 2013. When it worsened, she went to hospital, collapsing in the waiting room. It turned out to be pneumonia, which rapidly turned into sepsis, and she was given a 5% chance of survival. She lived, however, doctors were forced to amputate both her hands and her feet. Within four months of losing her limbs, single mum Cor defied doctors with her progress when she walked a mile through Glasgow city centre on prosthetic legs in a bid to raise awareness of the charity she had set up to help other amputees, namely Finding Your Feet. Through both emotional and physical support, Finding Your Feet has changed and even saved the lives of many amputees and their families. It has raised over £1,000,000 for the cause so far.

 

Since then, Cor has carried the Commonwealth Games baton, received the Freedom of Renfrewshire, been given the Points of Light award by Prime Minister David Cameron and is regularly included in Inspirational Women of the Year awards. She was the first female quadruple amputee to summit Ben Nevis and Mount Kilimanjaro, and completed the London Triathlon.  In early 2019, Cor became the first Scot to receive a double hand transplant. Cor devotes her life to running her charity in addition to campaigning to raise awareness of the need for organ, tissue and limb donors, to spot the signs of killer sepsis and prevention methods to reduce the need for amputation. She is improving perceptions and conditions for disabilities too, changing the boundaries and removing the stigma of being ‘different’. Her infectious wit, humour and ability to laugh in the face of her own adversity is both refreshing and humbling. She has spoken at events across the UK, covered by news outlets worldwide and appeared on national TV including The One Show and Good Morning Britain. Cor has a monthly column in The Sunday Post. Her greatest achievement to date is raising her son, Rory.
