The two have been featured in programs on several media outlets and the world is fascinated with these unusual sisters.
Here are some interesting things you may not know about the Hensel twins.
They do not share a heart, stomach, spins, lungs or spinal cord.
The twins were born in Carver County, Minnesota, to Patty, a registered nurse, and Mike Hensel, a carpenter and landscaper. They were raised in New Germany, Minnesota, attended Lutheran High School in Mayer, and graduated from Bethel University in St. Conjoined twins are quite rare and that is the reason Abby and Brittany’s story has become so popular.
The two girls have very different personalities and interests. The twins both successfully passed their driver’s license exams, both the written and driving tests.
They had to take the tests twice, once for each twin. They began college at Bethel University in Arden Hills, Minnesota, majoring in education.
They are effective in cooperatively using their limbs when both hands or both legs are required.
At age 12, they underwent surgery at Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare to correct scoliosis and to expand their chest cavity to prevent future difficulties with breathing. Each twin is able to operate one arm and one leg, whichever is on their half of the body.
Each one can write on their own, but some activities like running or swimming take the coordination of the two.
Brittany’s leg is in fact nearly two inches shorter than Abby’s; and Brittany tends to stand and walk on tip-toe which has made her calf muscle significantly larger than Abby’s.
The continued growth of Abby’s spine was surgically halted after Brittany prematurely stopped growing.
