Video: Emotional moment seriously ill woman communicates using Adele's music

This is the amazing moment a seriously ill woman responded to her family after major surgery left her unable to speak.

Toni Watson was born with genetic disorder Turner syndrome, and has had to undergo a series of heart operations since the age of six weeks due to the condition.

After undergoing major 16-hour surgery to stretch a heart valve at the Royal Victoria Hospital on June 4, Toni (24) suffered multiple strokes and her family were told to prepare for the worst.

However, Toni, described as a fighter by her family, pulled through, and incredibly was able to mouth the words to Adele's Rolling In The Deep when it was played to her in hospital.

Her family have launched a social media campaign to ask Adele to record a personal greeting to give Toni hope.


They have established the Facebook page 'No Ordinary Girl', named after Toni's blog Turner Syndrome: No Ordinary Girl, and are attempting to get the hashtag #AdeleHelpToni trending on Twitter.
