Shiloh was born with a rare condition called sirenomelia, or Mermaid Syndrome. "[The condition is] two legs that are stuck together to make one whole leg," Shiloh says. "It's the way I was made when I was born."
Sirenomelia affects one in 70,000 pregnancies, and babies born with the condition almost never survive. When Shiloh was born, the doctors told her parents she wouldn't live for more than 72 hours. Ten years later, Shiloh is one of only six people in the world living with Mermaid Syndrome.
