Shiloh Pepin? she was on Oprah Show last week! I wasn’t able to watch it live so I’m looking for youtube video of Oprah’s interview with Shiloh. I read in the news that Shiloh used her interview on Oprah as an opportunity to drop the bomb that her parents are divorcing. How sad..
Anyway, Shiloh Pepin known as the “Little Mermaid Girl” was born with rare congenital deformity called Mermaid Syndrome or Sirenomelia. Sirenomelia is a lethal birth defect of the lower body characterized by apparent fusion of the legs into a single lower limb giving the appearance of a mermaid's tail. When she was born, doctors gave her 72 hours to live, and now she's 10, and still strong and alive.
Shiloh Pepin is one only three people in the world surviving with sirenomelia, the oldest being Tiffany Yorks who had her legs separated and is now 21-years-old. Mermaid Girl Shiloh Pepin became famous when a recent documentary was made about Sirenomelia.
