Kendra Deene Herrin and Maliyah Mae Herrin are former conjoined twins born in 2002 in Salt Lake, Utah, USA. They were separated at the age of 4 in August 2006.
Prior to their separation surgery, medical doctors in the United States and in Europe discussed whether it was ethical to separate the twins as they shared a kidney. Though this would pose a big risk to Maliyah as Kendra was the one with the kidney, however their family and doctors believed a separation would give both girls their best chance to live a normal life.
After the separation surgery was done, Kendra retained their shared, while Maliyah Herrin underwent dialysis until she was transplanted with a kidney donated by her mother in April 2007.
It is worth noting that Kendra and Maliyah were the first set of conjoined twins to be separated to share a kidney.
Today, we are bringing you some beautiful photos of the twin who turned 18 in February this year.
