FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Madera County street vendor will get a new prosthetic leg thanks to the generosity from the community.

Two sisters have been using their home bakery business, Simply Sweet Sisters, to help raise money for Guillermo Lozano.

Lozano was run over by a car and had his leg amputated.

Last week, Fabiola Ochoa spoke with Action News about how she and her sister were working to raise funds to help Lozano buy a new prosthetic leg.
