Woman carrying twin babies for her twin sister

PORTLAND, Ore. (CNN) — It’s said twins share a special bond, and this story has double the love. 

A woman in Portland, Oregon is giving her twin sister the gift of a lifetime.

When Jill Noe’s sister, Whitney Bliesner couldn’t get pregnant, Noe volunteered to serve as her surrogate for not one but two babies. 

Bliesner was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease called neurofibromatosis type two or NF2. 

According to the US National Library of Medicine, NF2 is the growth of noncancerous tumors in the nervous system.

Noe is now 30 weeks along in the pregnancy with a healthy set of twins, a boy and a girl.

They are due on June 6.
