This is a scam. It is based on a news story from 2002:

http://www.umm.edu/news/releases/conjoined_twins.htm

Loice and Christine were born connected from the breast bone to the navel. This type of connection is classified as thoracopagus, and is the most common connection in conjoined twins. Loice, the smaller of the two girls, and Christine, each had their own spleen, kidneys and gallbladder. However, they shared a diaphragm, sternum, chest wall and abdominal wall. They had a fused liver, which had to be separated and their hearts were connected by a large blood vessel.

The two girls have long been separated, and will be schoolchildren by now.

I am Gary Hilton from Ekiadolor village, Akure in Ilorin West Africa. My wife, Margret just delivered two girls by cesarean section on the 5th June 2010. The delivery was prolonged / complicated and unfortunately, they were Siamese Twins / Conjoined twins. We were referred to a specialist hospital in a nearby city where doctors said they were connected from the breast bone to the navel - a connecton called thoracopagus - the most common connection in conjoined twins. Each had their own spleen, kidneys and gallbladder. However, they shared a diaphragm, sternum, chest wall and abdominal wall. They had a fused liver, which had to be separated and their hearts were connected by a large blood vessel. The doctors at the specialist hospital close to our village made enquiries informed us that the separation can be done outside Africa. They have given us contact of 4 hospitals and the cheapest is that of the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London. where the surgery will cost $20,000.00 We were married for nine year ago without a child until now and we are scared of loosing this chance because i know my wife have a medical condition that affected her uterus so it might be impossible for her to concive again. We write to appeal for help to safe the lives of our unfortunate children. We shall appreciate your kindness no matter how small.
