A Kansas City woman is getting a new prosthetic arm to replace one stolen from her minivan in September.

The Kansas City Star reports that 29-year-old Gaby Carmona had done without since the theft because of the $120,000 replacement cost.

But the mother of five got a surprise Tuesday when she arrived in Overland Park, Kansas, to be assessed for a less costly prosthesis.

Instead she was getting a high-tech replacement thanks to the generosity of a manufacturer and others.
