American news figure, swapped at birth in the hospital with Kimberly Mays. Arlena was raised by Rebecca and Ernest Twigg and their seven kids. Born with a deformed heart, her condition deteriorated until surgery was necessary, and she died of complications at age nine, August 1988.

Pre-surgery, blood work revealed that she could not be the biological daughter of the Twigg's. She never knew of the dilemma, but after her death, the Twigg's filed a $100 million lawsuit against the hospital, doctors and nurses on duty. Eventually they were awarded $7 million in damages.
