TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A bond between sisters is a bond that can't be broken.
Identical twins Danielle Scott and Jessica Drake have a special story.
Danielle and Jessica have been inseparable for as long as they can remember.
In 2013, Danielle found out she had stage three ovarian cancer at just 27 years old.
Doctors ended up giving her a complete hysterectomy, making it impossible for her to have children in the future.
"That was the point I decided I was going to fight like I wasn't going to be a victim because I knew that if I let it get me down, that I would be done," said Danielle.
Her twin sister Jessica was there through it all.
"I feel like I just went into autopilot. Like we had to do what we had to do to get her to feel better," said Jessica.
Now, five years later, Danielle is married and ready for children.
Her sister Jessica has decided to become a surrogate.
"You know.. We want to have kids, and she said, 'Well I'll carry'," said Danielle.
Danielle says she is grateful for her sister's quick response to carry her child, but Jessica says it wasn't a hard decision.
"I don't like a lot of attention, but I don't feel like I'm not doing it for any other reason other than the fact that she's my sister, and I want her to experience being a mom," said Jessica.
Like the old saying, it takes a village to raise a child.
"I can't wait to buy a onesie that says 'the village baby' on it, because like literally this is everybody's baby," said Danielle.
The community has decided to help and they're asking for everyone to get involved.
Delish Cafe in Terre Haute is hosting a fundraiser dinner for the twins on Thursday, April 5th.
The event will last from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. with a spaghetti dinner and silent auction.
All proceeds will be going to the surrogate procedure.
