Conjoined twin brothers have died in their western Pennsylvania home a little more than two months after they were born.

The Indiana County coroner's office tells the Associated Press the boys had been receiving hospice care at their home in Indiana, Pennsylvania, about 45 miles north of Pittsburgh, before they died Tuesday.

Andrew and Garrett Stancombe were born April 10 to Michelle Van Horne and Kody Stancombe, who already have a 22-month-old son together.

The couple decided against risking surgery to separate Andrew and Garrett, who were joined at the torso and shared a heart and liver.

The boys' funeral was set for Thursday evening, following visitation at the Rairigh-Bence Funeral Home in Indiana.

Could one have lived if they'd had the surgery?

Oh aren't they precious...I can't imagine the heartbreak. Praying for the family.

it would have been extremely risky since heart and live involved. i would have probably made the same decision they did, still so heartbreaking.

That is horribly sad.

The chance of one of them surviving that surgery was probably even slimmer than the chance of them surviving this way they were born.

Yes, and to put them through that when the survival chances are so slim, I can understand their parent's hard choice. I am sure they knew only love and comfort in their short time here.

Yes!

i watched the sanjay gupta special on conjoined twins last week that were joined at the brain and separated. i hope they are doing all right. it reminded me of this thread.

So you cried when those 2 months old died?

Do you cry when a baby is aborted? Are you cool with partial birth abortion?

If not, what's the difference?

Great questions! 

TinktheSprite --- 1 years ago -

Keep the politics off this thread and others. You guys really have over stepped your boundaries! 

mutton --- 1 years ago -

Agree Tink. Sad this site has become what it is with so many haters. I drive a red truck, let's hate on that...lol. Crap, is a truck...
