My angel Jessica Villada

Since my twin sister Jessica was 3 she has been fighting for her life. At age 14 she was dying and was admitted to the children's hospital in Philadelphia and her name was put on the waiting list. She waited 8 months and out of her unit of ten kids at the time she was the only one to survive this life threatening transplant. Jessica had a heart and double lung transplant. She made a remarkable recovery  but only after 6 months she was diagnosed with lung cancer. She had chemotherapy done for one year and not one strand of hair ever fell of her head. I am happy to say she has been in remission from the cancer since. After Jessica's transplant she was given an expectancy of 5-7 years of extended life. It was been 13 years! She has been a fighter and has never stopped. This last month she was admitted to the hospital 3 times and this last time she went into coma and is on a breathing machine. My family and I are staying positive. I am so grateful for all the support I have been getting. It just pushes me to keep going strong. At this time my  family and I are asking for donations. We have to spend as much time as possible with her. We all have stopped working to take care of her as the bills don't stop coming in. We would greatly appreciate any help anyone is willing to give us. Thank you for reading this amazing story.
