At just 15, Morgan was forced to make a decision that women twice her age don’t even usually have to grapple with.
After discovering she was dealing with ovarian torsion, which is a twisting of the ovaries, doctors were forced to remove her right ovary. She experienced torsion and she underwent surgery again, and this time her ovary was saved, but Morgan and her parents – Buffy and Chip – were faced with the reality that having kids in the future might not be possible.
“After the second surgery, it hit me that I may not be able to have what I want most in life, which is to be a mom,” Morgan, now 19, tells The Doctors.
Morgan and her parents decided to go forward with harvesting and freezing as many eggs as possible and sought help from Dr. Wendy Chang from the Southern California Reproductive Center.
While 20 eggs would have been ideal, Dr. Chang was able to collect and freeze 10 of Morgan's eggs. Dr. Chang, who is also the Scientific Director of the Southern California Reproductive Center, explains that ovarian torsion is rare and only happens to about 1 in 10,000 people.
In order to help Morgan achieve her dream of becoming a mother, Dr. Chang and the Scientific Director of the Southern California Reproductive Center have a surprise for her that should help her on her journey to motherhood. Watch the video above to find out the generous gift they give her.
