“Your Ordinary is Extraordinary”
Join the Amputee Coalition in celebration of Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month (LLLDAM), April 1-30, 2022. Themed, “Your Ordinary is Extraordinary,” LLLDAM spotlights the limb loss and limb difference community and the vital need to support efforts that advance equitable medical access, care, and coverage.
The obstacles that people living with limb loss and/or limb difference must overcome are no easy feats. As they adapt to a new way of living, amputees experience victories daily in simple areas of life. During 2022 LLLDAM, we celebrate the small and big wins within our community. We would like our community to know, “Your Ordinary is Extraordinary.”
By approaching each day of life with the fundamental willpower to thrive, our community members champion human strength by persisting. COVID-19 has exacerbated mental, physical, emotional, and social problems for all humans, and while our community members experienced grave setbacks during this time, they still find ways to thrive. It may seem so ordinary as amputees go about their lives, but their ordinary is extraordinary.
