Twins show signs of cancer at the same time

Twins show signs of cancer at the same time

A teenage girl started suffering from symptoms of cancer when her twin was diagnosed in 2017, even though he didn’t have the disease.

Sophie Walker, 16, was diagnosed with Wilms tumor, a type of kidney cancer, on October 25, 2017 and soon after began four weeks of chemotherapy.

Over the next five years, he went into remission twice, but relapsed four times.

Shortly after Sophie was diagnosed with stomach cramps, her twin sister Megan began experiencing similar symptoms, including stomach and back pain, paleness and weight loss.

The sisters are from Edinburgh, Scotland, the Mirror reported.

Rebecca Walker, the girls’ mother, confirms the strange relationship between the two sisters.

“When Sophie was diagnosed, Megan started experiencing the same symptoms. People comment all the time about how unwell she looks – she looks paler than her sister,” she explains.

“She’s had every test imaginable, but there’s nothing wrong with her. It’s so weird,” the mom says.

The Walker family created a page on the crowdfunding site GoFundMe to raise money for proton therapy in New York.
