But behind their young beauty, the girls have been sharing a very important message.

When their dad Kevin was diagnosed with leukaemia and lymphoma, the girls made it their mission to help find him the perfect bone marrow match.

They took to their Instagram and encouraged their followers to get tested - and their campaign, and Kevin’s story, went global.

“The response was awesome - I love them being able to use their platform to help other people as well,” Kevin said.

“We partnered with DKMS, and it’s an ability to get yourself swabbed and find out if you are a donor and get on the registry.

“It’s an easy process to be a bone marrow donor, and I think a lot of people have this misconception that it is hard and painful, but it’s really not.

“Having them have a chance to do that and to help me out, but also to help so many other people out, it’s amazing.”

Successful transplant

Kevin later found a match in his brother and has successfully undergone the bone marrow transplant - and the girls have been helping their dad through his recovery.

“It is a long, long road. I’m about 39 days out from the transplant, and it is rough at times,” Kevin said.

“But at times, I feel energy and I feel excited, and being at home and resting and being around these guys is amazing.

“It always brings a smile to my face and gives me that energy to keep moving, keep pushing, and look at the light at the end of the tunnel.”

Continuing to raise awareness

And the girls haven’t stopped there - they are now also selling nail polish to raise funds for their cousin Shane, who diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA) at 10-months-old.

“They have a cousin who was born with this unfortunate disease,” Kevin said.

“My brother-in-law and sister-in-law, who are the parents of Shane, went on a campaign to promote screening for newborns.

“So the girls partnered up with Nail and Bone, a nail polish line, and a lot of the proceeds go towards SMA, and the research to find a cure.”
