Woman Acts As Surrogate For Her Twin Sister Battling Cancer So She Can Still Have A Baby

Few things are stronger than the bond between two siblings, especially twins. So, when Danielle Rant discovered her sister was unable to carry children due to her cancer diagnosis, she stepped in and offered to be her surrogate.

Danielle Rant gave her sister the ultimate gift when she promised to be her surrogate.

Inside Edition

Her twin, Kaila Jorgensen, was diagnosed with breast cancer three years ago and didn’t know if she would be able to carry children anytime in the near future.

When Jorgensen discovered she had breast cancer and was a carrier of the BRCA gene, doctors suggested she freeze her eggs before beginning chemo.

Unfortunately, once she started hormone therapy to do so, Jorgensen’s cancer began metastasizing and she was forced to stop.

“We had no idea what we were going to do. We kept pushing my oncologist at our monthly visits, saying, ‘You know we are getting married soon, we want to have kids. What is that going to look like? Are we going to have to wait five years?’” Jorgenson said.

After watching what her sister was going through, Rant started researching surrogacy and decided she wanted to help her sister by carrying her baby.

Jorgensen was completely caught off guard by her sister’s generous offer.

“I had no idea that she was even thinking about it,” she said. “It totally blew me away.”

So far, the process has gone very smoothly for Rant.

“Luckily, it worked on the first try and there wasn’t a lot of failed attempts,” Rants told InsideEdition.com. “It was kind of nerve-wracking and I didn’t know what to expect, but I have been getting through [pregnancy] OK and I’ve had no complications or anything so far.”

Since the pregnancy began, Jorgensen’s cancer has progressed and she is undergoing more chemotherapy, but she’s excited about the birth of her baby boy.

“It’s not anything I would have expected. Going into this process we thought that’dI’d just be on medication and be OK, but a few months into the pregnancy things changed,” Jorgensen said.

Both sisters agree that this experience has brought them closer together as a family.

“My sister is giving us a gift bigger than we could have ever expected or imagined,” Jorgensen said. “We can’t even begin to thank her enough, but we owe her everything.”
