Watch this heart-warming story about two half-sisters who found each other through the Healthy Nevada Project DNA testing.
Two women, both of whom lived in Nevada growing up, have more than a love of animals and quick tempers in common. It turns out, they’re also related, which they now know as a result of the Healthy Nevada Project.
Paige Allison, Hometown Health employee, was adopted as a young child. So she decided to participate in the Healthy Nevada Project primarily to understand a little more about her medical and family histories. What she found was a half-sister who had lived close to her throughout her life, but that she had never known.
Finding a Relative Through DNA Testing
“As a child I always felt like there was something missing in my life, but I never could explain it,” said Natalie McCargar, Paige’s half-sister.
And now the two are able to share stories, histories and time together.
“I’m happy to have a half-sister that we’re close to and can communicate with and just share my life with,” McCargar said.
