Teaching awareness and appreciation of life
In 2007, the sisters released their memoir – The Power of Two: A Twin Triumph Over Cystic Fibrosis – which was published by the University of Missouri Press. In it, they illustrate their struggle to maintain normal lives, all the while coping with the realization that they might die young. Anabel and Isabel’s story reflects the physical and emotional struggles brought about by cystic fibrosis and tells how the sisters heritage impacted the way in which they coped. The Power of Two is a raw and honest look into the day-to-day living with a chronic illness and it teaches readers about the ultimate power of hope.
