Sisters Irma Myers-Santana & Anna Williamson Get Lung Transplant

71-year-old Irma Myers-Santana and her sister, 69-year-old Anna Williamson were blessed recently when the two siblings received a lung transplant from the same donor. This blessing occurred at Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas. According to the San Antonio Express News, Irma and Anna have had a close relationship their entire lives, but as is often the case between siblings - their personalities are completely different. So, when it turned out they both needed a lung transplant, each wanted the other to get the new organ first. However, in the end, both of them were a match and each was transplanted with one lung from the same donor.
