MILWAUKEE -- The family of twin heart transplant recipients are paying it forward. FOX6 News first introduced you to Chloe and Kendall Roehling back in December.

When Chloe and Kendall were about 13 months old, Chloe had a stroke. She was diagnosed with restrictive cardiomyopathy -- a heart disease. As it turned out, Kendall had the same condition. The only cure? A heart transplant. Christine Roehling and twins, Chloe and Kendall
