After Twins Were Diagnosed With A Fatal Disease, Doctors Told Their Mom That Only One Could Survive

When Nick and Devin Coats were diagnosed with cirrhosis of the liver, there was apparently only one way they could survive: both twins needed a liver transplant. But the wait for suitable donors was agonizing, with the boys’ health deteriorating all the while. And then a doctor provided the brothers’ mom with some devastating news.

Nick and Devin’s diagnosis had initially come in March 2017 – and from the outset the prognosis didn’t look good. For starters, there appeared to be only one real option for treatment: the liver transplant. And as waiting lists for the procedure were excruciatingly long, time was not a friend to the teenagers.
