Rumi was born with a right arm that ends just beneath her elbow, and that difference was making it increasingly difficult for her to keep up with her friends. It also made Rumi the target of bullying.
But on Sunday, May 13, 2018, an audience estimated at 2-million viewers tuned in to watch TLC’s “This Is Life Live” and see the More Foundation present Rumi and her mom with a 3d-printed prosthetic arm and grasping hand that could change everything for this wonderful child. Plus, a custom-designed swim fin to help keep Rumi safe in the pool. Watch how local media covered this remarkable story.
The Foundation began operating as a tax exempt
private foundation (501(c)3), with the Board of Trustees, in 2011. With the support of its
initial sponsor, MORE quickly built programs to
conduct musculoskeletal research studies that
served the public interest.
