Baby's Babies 'Saved'
Thanks to a new miracle surgery, the hope that little Violet Lee can one day have children won't be killed by chemotherapy.
The plucky, 2-year-old Brooklyn girl is set to become the youngest person ever to undergo a fertility procedure when a New York doctor removes one of her ovaries Tuesday and freezes it while she undergoes treatment for a serious immune disease.
The tiny organ will be put on ice for 20 years or more, ready for re-implantation if and when a grown-up Violet decides to have kids of her own.
