Alex Powell was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in 1992 at age 15. He needed chemotherapy that could get a sperm and freeze it so he would use it to have kids afterward.
Patricia stated she went with him and was worried when he was in the room for a long time; however, he finally surfaced with the container in his right hand and a baffled expression, stating that he did not know what to do next.
Maintaining the sperm viable for artificial insemination was really challenging.
However, luck was on Alex’s side, and twenty-three years later, after over one year of treatments, Guinness World Records confirmed that his sperm has turned out to be the world’s oldest sperm to ever successfully impregnate a woman.
