'Miracle twins' granted special wish

Posted: Updated:

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - East Texas twin toddlers will be granted a very special wish this Friday morning.

As a part of the "Special Wish Child" program, two-year-olds Kamya and Kamora will receive several medical gifts their mother says will help them develop.

Tangela Johnson calls her twin daughters, Kamya and Kamora her miracle babies.

They were born 17 weeks early with serious complications.

Tangela says, "They've been through probably 15 surgeries together. It never gets easy. Every time is hard."

Kamora has had three brain surgeries; Kamya has had several eye surgeries.

Tangela hasn't been able to go back to work--taking care of her girls is a full-time job that includes nurses also working around the clock.

Nurse Connie has worked with Kamya for a year. Their bond, she says is inseparable.

"I leave here exhausted, but they give me such a joy that it makes me want to come back the next day and I just can't explain to you how proud I am to be a part of their family. I mean they're almost like my grandbabys," Nurse Connie expressed.

On Friday, the girls will receive a new, bigger bed that they will share. They will also get special toys that will help with their development.

"I can't even explain because I feel like I've won the lottery. I feel special. I feel like my girls are special. I feel like we're blessed already, but it's just like for somebody to want to do something for us," says Tangela, "I'm grateful for this. We definitely could not afford and it's something that we really, really needed."

A special gift for what she calls the biggest miracles of her life.

Kamya and Kamora have a medical fund account at Austin Bank.
