Amputee Support Group

The Amputee Coalition recognizes the challenges of recovering from a traumatic event such as losing a limb or learning that your child will be born with limb loss. We have embraced peer support as one way to help address these challenges. With over 260 support groups and over 1,000 peer visitors across the country, peer support offers the emotional support, encouragement and information vital for a full recovery.
