Julie Cameron was just 15 years old when doctors told her she would never have children. The distraught teenager was diagnosed with Mayer-Rokitansky-Küster-Hauser Syndrome, an extremely rare condition that meant she was born without a womb, cervix or fallopian tubes. So imagine her surprise 20 years later when Julie learned that she actually had two healthy ovaries - by using Google.

She was 97 and having an ultrasound done for maybe the 2nd time in her life.

* Review of medical history of infant and family
