Number 10 shiloh pepin

 For a condition that is considered fatal in newborns shiloh pepin was one young lady that defied the odds and stayed way longer than just the few hours that doctors had initially predicted she was born with cyrenomelia a rare congenital disorder that led to legs being fused together so it's not surprising that this condition is also known as the mermaid syndrome since her fused limbs take the shape of the dorsal fin in fish however this disorder in her lower spine meant that shiloh had to live a significant part of her life in the hospital due to this condition most of her organs including the kidneys didn't form completely so she had to get her first kidney transplant at the young age of two and then more than a hundred surgeries within the first seven years of her life although shiloh finally passed away at the age of 10 due to complications from pneumonia she is only one of three people known to have survived the mermaid syndrome beyond a few days after birth..


Number 9 Joseph merrick
