WEE BLUE PILL HELPS TO KEEP JESSICA, 4, ALIVE.

VIAGRA is helping to save the life of four-year-old Jessica Findlay.

Jessica's condition means her arteries collapse and blood cannot reach her lungs and heart.

She developed severe multiple bilateral pulmonary arterial stenosis at just 18 months.

But now the condition is under control thanks to Viagra.

Mum Rachel, 25, of Barassie, Ayrshire, said: "We were devastated when she was diagnosed with this terminal condition.

"Then one of the doctors suggested trying Viagra. I was shocked - it has a bit of a stigma attached to it. But when you see your child suffering, you try anything to make it better.

"It's not a miracle cure but it gives her a real boost."
