‘Before they die’, kids wanted friend to get an arm


The next time someone dismisses Twitter as just a place where you post about what you’re having for lunch, tell them the story of Torri Biddle, 19, an Ohio woman who was born without an arm.

Her friends started a campaign on Twitter, using the hashtag #HandForTorri, to try to get her a prosthetic arm. That effort caught the attention of The Buried Life, which held a contest asking people what they wanted to do before they die.

Ms. Biddle’s pal submitted her story.

“It wasn’t a wasn’t a sob story,” Ben Nemtin of “The Buried Life” told the New York Daily News. “She played basketball, had an awesome group of friends. One thing she wanted to do, was have a bionic arm.”

Look who’s got an arm!
