Barbie Thomas is a bodybuilder from Phoenix but she is not just any bodybuilder. She definitely stands out but her inner strength is what sets her apart. She was born Aug. 5, 1976 in NY but was raised in Texas. The oldest of two brothers was only 2 ½ years old when she suffered an accident losing both arms.
Little Barbie climbed upon a transformer near home and as she climbed up, she grabbed on the wires and the electricity bolted through her body and burned her arms all the way through the bone. Electricity entered through both of her hands, traveled through my her little body, and exited through both of legs. That is why she also has burns/scars on both legs.
Thomas can do almost everything a person with two arms can do, including driving, cooking and writing emails. She is 37 year old mother of two children.
