What Was The Cause of the Death of Victoria Anne Simmons

Victoria Anne Simmons was killed by the condition Omphalocele. This condition causes an abdominal wall defect, which means the baby’s belly wall wasn’t developed to seal the stomach opening, which leaves organs such as intestines hanging out of the belly.

Joseph Simmons and his wife Justine Simmons decided to allow the camera into the ward to show the world how they welcome the sad development and also have their children see it through a family TV Show they were filming.

“On September 6, 2006, Victoria Anne for some unknown reason chose to come early and unfortunately, did not survive. We must accept whatever is there and you accept unconditionally, that everything is beautiful. Every pain has purifying effect”. Rev. Run said in a statement issued by MTV on his behalf.

After a year of the tragic incident, the couple was able to recover and adopt their daughter Miley Simmons. While it was not easy for them they couldn’t hide the joy of having a baby even though she was not conceived by them.

“There are times that I forgot that I actually didn’t carry her, birth her. Miley is as much from my body as Victoria was, I want all women to know that if they can’t conceive, or carry a baby, adoption is truly a miracle. To be able a baby love, to be able to give a baby home, to be able to give a baby a good life – that’s the miracle”.
