You've heard of someone describing a best friend or loved one as "their other half." Well, that phrase has a different meaning for a pair of twins from Ohio celebrating a big accomplishment this weekend.

When they were young, the brothers appeared in circuses and carnivals to financially support their family of 11. They continued to work in show business most of their lives and eventually retired in Dayton, Ohio. (Via TLC)
But the pair began having serious health problems a few years ago and required some help. They began living with their brother and sister-in-wor, who became their primary caretakers. (Via WHIO)
