Grantham baby given just months to live turns 102-years-old




A woman who was given just months to live as a baby celebrated her 102nd birthday this week.

When Irene Miller was born with a large tumour on the side of her face, her parents struggled to find a surgeon who would be willing to operate on their daughter. Without the operation, they were told their only child would not live beyond two years old.
