Walker Myrick never really knew his twin brother Willis who died during childbirth, but that doesn’t stop the 9-year-old from visiting his brother’s grave.
Willis suffered from an incredibly rare condition known as Twin Transfusion Syndrome that occurs when both fetuses share the same placenta.
The dutiful little boy sits by his brother’s tombstone every major holiday to talk. A recent photograph showing Walker talking to Willis about his first day at school has gone viral and it’s breaking hearts around the globe.
His mother shared the image to help raise awareness about Twin Transfusion Syndrome and its affect on families.
