Against the Odds
Erin says things are going really well for the girls. Each girl has one kidney—Kendra has the one she once shared with her sister, and Maliyah was given a kidney from her mother. "Especially after Maliyah got her kidney from me, things went a lot better," Erin says. However, both girls still face a long road ahead and will need back surgery to straighten their spines. Three weeks later they will be fitted for prosthetic legs. "That's a big milestone," Erin says.
