HOUSTON – One donor has given two sisters a second chance at life here in Houston.

Anna and Irma suffer from a condition that scars the lungs. The sisters said they have bickered over many things in life, including who should get a transplant first.

A few weeks ago Methodist Hospital found a donor that matched both sisters and each was given a lung.

Doctors said it came just in time because the women wouldn’t have lived much longer.
