Limbs for Life Foundation is a global non-profit organization dedicated to providing fully functional prosthetic care for individuals who cannot otherwise afford it and raising awareness of challenges facing amputees.
The Limbs for Life Foundation accepts donations of used prosthetic. These gifts are broken down into components and used parts are donated free of charge to organizations and professional workers meeting the needs of amputees in developing countries worldwide. In the past year, used prosthetic donations have been welcomed by amputees in Guatemala, the Philippines, Panama, Bosnia, Nigeria, South Africa and Mongolia.
Volunteers help with annual events, the Blaze 5K run and the Scott Sabolich Golf Tournament. Please call the office if you would like to volunteer.
Many groups and individuals host activities in their respective communities to raise awareness and support for the foundation. Limbs for Life will provide logos, sample press releases and other support.
Over 3,000 people in the United States will lose a limb every week, almost 18 per hour. Many of these amputees are unable to afford proper prosthetic care due to the lack of insurance or other financial resources. Limbs for Life is the financial bridge for these amputees to receive a prosthetic limb.
Amputees are people who have lost a limb or part of a limb. Your limbs are your arms and legs. Losing a limb or part of a limb can be the result of illness or injury. Some people lose limbs in accidents or during a war. In other cases, people lose limbs as the result of birth defects or illnesses such as diabetes, cancer and vascular diseases.
Health and Wellness - The foundation was designed to bring restoration to the lives of amputees who cannot afford costly prosthetic care. These people have the opportunity to return to a productive job and normal lifestyle through our financial assistance.
A prosthesis will not only allow the amputee to be independent, but improve their health and well-being because they will be active and participate in activities that will lead to a better quality of life. We are making a disability an ability.
