A Cambridge First for the anorexic girl given just hours to live
After graduating from Cambridge University with a starred First Class degree, Mandy Kaye has the world at her feet.
She achieved the highest possible grade, the only student in her faculty to do so.
But she has faced much more than an academic challenge. Just weeks after starting her course she was forced to quit because of her battle with anorexia.
Weighing less than five stone and surviving on a diet of coffee, cherry tomatoes and apples, she was told by doctors she had only hours to live.
Miss Kaye, of Southgate, North London, fought her way back to health and last month received her top degree.
