Great initiative! As a mother of twins, I know exactly what you mean. I had no complications but was very careful and wary throughout the pregnancy. Only after birth could I enjoy myself and the tension left.

For us, it has been almost 4 years (September 2017) since our twin daughters were operated on at 18 weeks for TAPS and TTTS in the LUMC by Dr Haak and her team. We are also eternally grateful to LUMC. Our daughters Norah & Leah were born prematurely at 29.4 with a tough start, but luckily we still have them both in good health! Good luck with the run! Go for it! – Felicia

Hello from the States! My name is Kayleen Everitt, I recently came across The Twin Run through Stephanie with the TAPS Support Foundation. Our family was affected by TAPS in 2019. Our survivor is now two years old; he’s a tad tiny but oh-so-mighty! In an effort to honor our son, who we lost shortly after birth, and give back to the incredible medical team we created our own fundraiser called 30milesforben back in June. We are moved by your family’s story and your efforts in supporting TAPS research. Thank you.  Wishing you the best of luck on the run and sending your family strength and happiness as they grow. – Kayleen (

Lots of Luck! – Rico
