Two Sisters One Heart
On Valentine's Day, our family attended the special fund raising event for conjoined twin sisters Emma and Taylor, who share a heart and a liver. These cute girls are part of an awesome family in our neighborhood that we've known for several years. The girls have gone through extensive medical testing to see if they are candidates for separation surgery. A documentary was made about the family for the Discovery Health channel. Check your local listings, it's still being broadcast.
We were excited to be able to participate in this special event that so many people put so much work into, and happy to see such a great turn out!
Our kids enjoyed all the activities, like the rock climbing wall, the bouncers, and the face painting.
And my friend Jill and I ran our first 10K!
There is information on the following websites about the progress of the girls and how you can help:
