Still, Cerron’s doctors knew they had to try and give the girl a chance at a normal, healthy life. That task would be a very difficult one. Her legs were, of course, joined together all the way to the feet. Her digestive tract, urinary tract and genitals were all using a single tube. One of her kidneys was deformed, and the other was very small.

She also had the support of her country behind her: the city of Lima promised to pay for the many operations she would need as she grew from baby, to child, to teen. Multiple procedures would be required to give her the normal life everyone wanted for her.
