PORTLAND, Ore. (WHDH) — A Portland, Oregon woman will soon become a mother thanks to the help of her twin sister.
When Jill Noe’s sister, Whitney Bliesner, couldn’t get pregnant, she volunteered to serve as her surrogate.
Bliesner was diagnosed with a rare genetic disease called Neurofibromatosis type 2 or NF2, the growth of noncancerous tumors in the nervous system.
Noe is 30 weeks along in the pregnancy with a healthy set of twins — a boy and a girl.
She is due June 6.
