This is so touching, Frankielen da Silva Zampoli Padilha never got to meet her twins, but she was a warrior for them until the very end. Frankielen da Silva Zampoli Padilha, 21, suffered a stroke that left her brain dead. A young mother already, she was nine-weeks pregnant with twins. Doctors at Nosso Senhora do Rocio Hospital warned Frankielen’s husband, Muriel, that the twins would likely not survive. But their little hearts never stopped. Frankielen’s organs were all intact and working as if she was still with us. The doctors then took the decision to keep her alive to save her unborn children.
