    My mum has never been afraid of surgery or any sickness

    My mum has never been afraid of surgery or any sickness.
    My mum never afraid of surgery or any sickness.

    What is the different meaning with and without "has..been" in sentence above?

    Without there is no verb and therefore it is not a sentence.

    The second sentence is ungrammatical.
