Faith Lennox has spent most of her life missing part of her left arm. At birth, her body's position restricted blood flow to her arm, resulting in irreversible skin and muscle damage.

The 7-year-old has since adapted to living her whole life with one hand — but that changed when she met Mark Lengsfeld, founder of California's Build It Workspace.

This young company uses 3D printers to create anything from small industrial products to prosthetics — and they just built Faith a new hand!

This new prosthetic weighs only a pound and Faith can easily replace it for a bigger model when she outgrows the device, thanks to its insane affordability.

Though heavier prosthetic arms with sensors that connect to muscles can run up to $20,000, Faith's new hand will cost her just $50!!!

Ch-ch-check out the heartwarming video of Faith putting on her new prosthetic for the first time (below)!
