Craig Gurney from Sydney revealed that his brother Brenton initially underwent an MRI scan after complaining of persistent headaches. However when doctors found no problem with the scan, Brenton asked Craig to get a scan himself and doctors found a massive tumor in his brain.

''I was hoping they had mixed up the MRI results and got the wrong twin,'' Brenton told the Brisbane Times. He added that during the surgery, Craig's family kept looking at him in order to assess the health of the twin undergoing the surgery.

One year on, Craig is grateful to Brenton for saving his life. Both the brothers believe the horrific incident of the tumor and the surgery has only brought them closer.
