Always sisters, now a part of each other.
Maria Savino, sister of Frances DiIulio (aka Chickie), donated her kidney to save her sisterâs life in April 2011. Savino was an absolute perfect match for her sister.Â
In quoting Helen Keller, Savino says, âThe best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched; they must be felt with the heart.â
