Abandoned Conjoined Twins Successfully Separated

Abandoned Conjoined Twins Successfully Separated

Good news for a family in India: their 13-month-old twins, Aradhana and Stuti, who were born conjoined at the chest, will finally get to go home. The twins were successfully separated during a 12-hour operation involving 23 doctors and 11 nurses. 

The baby girls were left at the Missionary Hospital in Padhar after their birth in May 2011 because their parents could not afford to pay for their special care. The surgery was funded by Indian TV viewers, who made thousands of small donations after learning about their plight. The state government of Madhya Pradesh matched the public's donations with a $35,000 fund.

The surgery's silver lining is that the parents now plan to take their daughters home when they are fully recovered.
