SHREVEPORT, Louisiana -- A boy, who lived until he died peacefully at the age of 12, defied all odds after being born without a brain. He died on Monday, living longer than any doctor ever predicted. According to KSLA, Trevor Judge Waltrip was born on Christmas Eve of 2001 with just a brain stem and hydranencephaly. He had a rare condition in which his brain’s cerebral hemispheres were completely missing, replaced with only cerebro-spinal fluid.
