Help has finally arrived for Veronica Cominguez, a young girl from the Philippines who was born with a parasitic twin outside her chest.
For 14 years, the parasitic twin continued to grow with the girl who battled difficulty when moving as the extra limbs keep swinging.
Residents of Iligan city where Veronica lives have raised enough money for her to be able to get medical treatment in Thailand where doctors are expected to remove the extra limbs through a simple surgical procedure.
Her mothers said her lack of money to go for prenatal care during her pregnancy caused the condition.
Veronica is scheduled to undergo a simple life-saving surgery in the coming weeks.
