2 The World's Oldest Conjoined Twins

World's Oldest Conjoined Twins, Ronnie & Donnie Galyon

Ronnie and Donnie Galyon are the world's oldest living set of conjoined twins and also the world's only adult male conjoined twins. Born in Dayton, Ohio on October 28, 1951, the brothers, joined from the sternum to the groin, were delivered vaginally. According to Ward Hall, the twins' mother rejected them when they were born, leaving them to be raised by their father, Wesley, and later stepmother Mary. For the first two years of their lives, the twins were in and out of hospitals while doctors attempted to determine whether or not the twins could be separated. Because they share a single set of male organs, doctors decided that it was best not to separate them. They learned to walk at the age of 29 months.

The World's Oldest Conjoined Twins Move Home

58-year- old Ronnie and Donnie Galyon, the world's oldest conjoined twins are on the move! In 1991, after almost thirty years on the road appearing as a side show attraction, Ronnie and Donnie retired and moved into their own home in Ohio. But a virus recently resulted in the twins collapsing and ending up in hospital. Their doctor advised Ronnie and Donnie that they should no longer be living on their own, so their brother Jim and his wife Mary have invited them to come and live with them. This documentary shows them having a large extension to ensure their home is big enough to accommodate the twins.

One may have one soul,even if the baby has two brains and two spines.And only one heart.Medical science has to face sophisticated scientific questions to be remedied and the ethics will have to face new questions.God,direct the hands of doctors for noble deeds.Every problem has to be faced and remedied.Then only man can go forward.

I was lucky enough to travel with Ronnie and Donnie in 1977 with the carnival.I doubt if if they remember me but I would see them on the midway after the show closed. I'm glad to see them on TV and doing well.
