Annual Impact Report

Moving Forward

More than 2 million Americans are living with limb loss or limb difference, and more than 28 million are at risk for amputation surgery. The Amputee Coalition’s mission is to provide education and support to those on their limb loss and limb difference journey so they can live the life they most want to live. We believe no one should be on this journey alone.
