Itzel Chavez, 5, swims with her mom, Corina, not seen, Thursday, April 25, 2013 at River Park Community Center swimming pool in Naples, Fla. Corina was teaching Itzel to overcome her fears of jumping in a pool. The Chavez family came to cool off on a hot April day. Since receiving her second prosthetic arm, Itzel, has rejected it for everyday use. 'She really cries if I try to put it on her now,' Corina said. 'When she's ready, I want her to ask me not force it on her. She's had enough, been through so many things already.'
