Muniz recently met with Dr. Esmani Begit at the Albuquerque School of Excellence. The doctor created a new finger for Muniz with a 3D printer.

When he was ready to pick up the prosthetic, Moniz made a delivery of his own. KOB helped Moniz Pay It 4ward to Begit. Watch the video above for the complete story.
