Medical → Manar Maged... and her parasitic head (Set 1)

A nurse holds an Egyptian 10-month-old baby named Manar Maged with a parasitic head in a hospital in the city of Banha, 25 miles, north of Cairo (Egypt) (Feb., 2005).
Manar Maged of Egypt became the first baby to survive an operation to remove a parasitic head, but she died in March of 2006 of a persistent infection in her brain.

Manar Maged (March 30, 2004 - March 25, 2006) was an Egyptian girl, born with an extremely rare medical condition called craniopagus parasiticus (sometimes called "parasitic twin"): a type of conjoined twin where the twins are attached at the head and one fails to develop completely in the womb, becoming completely dependent upon the other.
On 19 February, 2005, Manar underwent a thirteen-hour operation in Benha, Egypt, to remove her twin. The operation was successful, and by 28 May she had recovered enough to go home. Her twin, who had been named Islaam, died on the operating table when the separation was carried out, and was buried by her family.
Manar died following a severe brain infection on March 25, 2006, 13 months after her successful operation.

Freaks that find this funny or have had a moan about political or religious views are seriously sick or mentally impaired, all I see is two precious beautiful girls who fought their hardest to survive.
How anyone can say the things that have been said on this post make me feel sick to the stomach and actually really sad for those people(if you can call them that, I hold dogs in higher regard).
Get real.
Grow up.
Maybe try and find some feelings but I doubt it. YOu're gonna end up sad lonely people one day.............

rid the world of islam
sue (below) why don't you tell your students about the evil acts that muslims commit.
look thru the index of muslim atrocities on this site, the muslim girl stoned to death in Iraq by an Islamic mob and the two girls beheaded in that shitehole called Indonesia ... Islam? every islamic person should be incarcerated in mental hospitals, the mosques burnt to the ground and their so-called holy men executed - the world will be a better place without Islamic people within it - Sue, you just KNOW it makes sense ...... don't you.

I am deeply saddened by this. I am currently teaching my students about disability and in researching about conjoined twins saw this story. I feel very emapthetic towards the parents who firstly had the courage to go through with the birth, and the subsequent sacrifice that they had to make.I am not a Muslim, but let Allah reward them for their courage and their loss of both children. I have prayed that God will be kind to them. May they be given many other healthy children.
