Our mission is to provide a place for amputees and their familes to connect with peers who have overcome similar challenges. 

Who We Are


This group is composed of confident, competent and caring individuals who want to make a positive difference in the lives of everyone touched by limb loss or living with limb difference.


As a group it is our goal to offer encouragement, emotional support, and the assurance that life, after amputation, can be full and rewarding.

Our Group

We openly invite Individuals living with limb loss, family members, friends and care givers as well as people facing a scheduled amputation. We strive to assist amputees in achieving optimal wellness in body, mind and spirit through inspiration, support and education.
