This Compilation Of A Young Woman’s Tweets Before She Passing Will Break Your Heart, But Also Inspire You

Shannon McKarney never even met Amanda, aka @TrappedAtMyDesk, but she was inspired to share her Twitter story.

Amanda was like any Twitter user at first, posting tweets about life, work, and family.
