A retired police sergeant and mother was given the surprise of a lifetime in Las Cruces. 

The Las Cruces Sun News reports, Candy Laney – the chosen patient at Oral & Facial Surgery of New Mexico – won $50,000 worth of free dental work. 

The 60-year-old says she’s been embarrassed by her teeth since she was kicked by a horse at the age of 11.

Her first surgery is scheduled for next month.
