Boy Born Without Arms Gets $100,000 Prosthetics

In today's edition of the "Good Stuff," a two-year-old boy gets new prosthetic arms. CNN's Chris Cuomo reports.

Jameson Davis was born without arms, and he just became the youngest person ever to be fit with myo-electric prosthetic limbs.

"In the simplest terms, it just flexes his little bicep, it'll open or close the hand," his father Jim Davis described.

Insurance paid for most of the cost of the $100,000 arms, but his Spokane, Washington, community raised $25,000.

"It's amazing to know there are great people in Spokane and they are willing to help strangers," Davis said.
