Tuesday, a set of twins with only a 25 percent chance of surviving told their story at their high school graduation.
Emily and Caitlin Copeland were conjoined at the chest when they were first born.
Now, the identical twins are left with only a scar to show their separation.
"I think being conjoined, you can actually look at a picture, like, 'Wow, they really were close.' like, I mean, but it's, it's true. The physical aspect of it is 100-percent true emotionally," said Emily.
The girls share more than just looks, they also share the title of high school valedictorian.
They plan to go to separate colleges in the fall.
