Itzel Chavez, 5, center, receives her new prosthetic arm from Paul Weott, licensed prosthetist/orthotist and Chris Lemonis, licensed prosthetist, Friday, Nov. 2, 2012 at Orthotic & Prosthetic Center in Fort Myers. After rejecting her first limb, Itzel Chavez, 5, and her mother, Corinna, hope she takes to her new limb. Unlike the old one from a year ago, it's more comfortable and is only for looks. Corinna admits she wants to stop the staring that people do sometimes. According to Corinna, Itzel is popular and makes friends easily.
