Oddity
    (January 8, 1993-October 24, 2013)
    Born in Baltimore, Maryland
    At age 19 (2012) remained similar to a toddler
    Was 30 inches tall and weighed 16 pounds
    Mental age estimated at nine months to a year
    Condition dubbed 'Syndrome X'
    'Syndrome X' tranlsates as 'Damned if we know what's going on.'
    She was seen by over 50 medical specialists and baffled them all.
    She appeared to be developing out of sync, with a mental age of a year or less while her bones are like those of a ten year old.
    She aged so slowly, her parents had trouble telling what age she was in old photos of her.
    She was born a month premature with severe hip dislocation that had to be corrected surgically.
    During her first six years, she suffered and recovered from a series of medical emergencies, including seven perforated ulcers, a stroke, and a mass in her brain that was diagnosed as a tumor but disappeared.
    Some doctors though she might've held the key to understanding the process of aging.
    There were people older than her who acted like infants with far less of an excuse.
    Her mother Melanie said, 'We had no doctors give us a cure. So we faced reality and we just said, 'She's here for a reason. She is fine in our eyes just the way she is.''
