April is Limb Loss Awareness Month!!
Join the Movement! The Amputee Coalition of America is national nonprofit organization helping amputees everywhere go through their journey after losing a limb. They have numerous resources and events held throughout the country. Last fall, Lawall joined in Philadelphia for Limb Loss Education Day. It was a wonderful event for amputees and their families.
The Amputee Coalition has designated April 25th as “Show Your Mettle Day.” Their concept is to show your “mettle,” the ability to cope well with difficulties or to face a demanding situation in a spirited and resilient way. We are encouraging anyone who feels comfortable to post a photo of themselves wearing their prosthesis on the Lawall facebook page (Facebook.com/Lawallprosthetics) and the Amputee Coalition facebook page (Facebook.com/AmputeeUSA).
