Lehigh Valley twins celebrated for how far they've come

It was a welcome home party five-year-olds Ava and Niko Keller didn't expect.

The Kellers have been staying at a hotel while the Lehigh Valley Phantoms Building Hope for Kids Project renovated their Macungie home. 

"We made sure that our renovations focused on the children's needs. Niko has some cerebral palsy, Niko and Ava were born at 23 weeks so they are the youngest surviving premature twins in the history of Lehigh Valley Hospital," said Jennifer Keeble, executive director of Lehigh Valley Phantoms charities.

Niko's bedroom has a superhero theme, while Ava's is perfect for a pink princess.

The basement is being transformed into a kids room where the twins can play and Niko can work on his physical therapy.

"It felt wonderful to know that those people just wanted to do something out of the kindness of their heart, to do something for our family, for Niko, because he certainly deserves it, they both do but he is our little warrior," Mom Gillian Keller said.
