Two preteen sisters, Kayla and Hannah Diegel, have been taken from their parents’ custody by Child Protective Services and Phoenix Children’s Hospital.
The sisters are being used without parental consent for genetic research. They have a rare form of genetic mitochondrial disorder. They have been fed in the past using feeding tubes. The feeding tubes allowed them to thrive.
However, the state has ordered the removal of the feeding tubes, which has caused Kayla, 12, to lose 25 percent of her weight, and Hannah, 10, to lose 17 percent. Kayla Diegel now has less than three percent body fat.
While the mother fears for her daughters’ lives, she has been ordered by a court not to to talk and to remove all discussion of the case from the internet and social media.
