In 2003, a brave little toddler captured the hearts of thousands of Australians when she became involved in an accident at the Roundhouse Childcare Centre in NSW.
That day, two-year-old Sophie Delezio suffered burns to 85 per cent of her body after she became trapped under a burning vehicle which had crashed into the childcare centre and caught alight.
The toddler lost both her legs below the knee and her right hand and ear.
A now 19-year-old Sophie has told Anh's Brush with Fame her parents were given the option to turn off her life support.

"It’s such a wild thought that a simple ‘yes’ and I would not be here," she said, admitting that growing up her mum and dad never discussed that decision with her.
"It’s something that’s always gone unspoken for our family. Just because we knew it was an option and they chose not to, it’s as simple as that. They chose to hold on."
But this wasn’t her final challenge. Three years later, in May 2006, Sophie was hit by a car as her nanny pushed her wheelchair across the road near her home in Sydney's northern beaches.
This time the car threw her 18 metres from her wheelchair. The resulting injuries included a broken jaw, broken ribs, fractured collarbone and a punctured lung as well as bleeding on her brain and a heart attack. Just a month later she was released from hospital and had returned to school by July that year.
