LOS ANGELES -- A Southern California woman battling cancer while pregnant has given birth to twins just a week after finding the perfect bone-marrow donor.
Susie Rabaca, 36, gave birth to one boy and one girl born eight minutes apart Thursday afternoon.
Rabaca was in desperate need of a bone-marrow transplant to help treat her leukemia. She needed a 100 percent match, but Rabaca's mixed heritage - Latino and Caucasian - had made finding a donor difficult.

Just weeks after her touching story went viral, she found the perfect match.
Rabaca, who was already a mother of three, hoped to undergo the marrow transplant after delivering her twins.
Rabaca's mother said Susie and her babies are doing very well.
