April is Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month



The Amputee Coalition invites you to celebrate Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month with us from April 1-30, 2023. The theme for the month is “Inspire to Elevate,” and our activities are built around four elements of that theme: Elevate Your Story, Elevate Your Voice, Elevate Your Community, and Elevate Your Potential.

More than 2.7 million people live with limb loss or limb difference in the United States. Hundreds of people lose a limb every day. By 2050, the number of amputees in the U.S. will nearly double. Limb loss affects people of all backgrounds, all income levels, and all ages. During April, we want to demonstrate how our community thrives and how you can participate.

The limb loss and limb difference community includes many inspirational people with amazing stories. We aim to tell their stories, advocate for their needs, educate people, and make sure no amputee is alone. LLLDAM is a perfect opportunity to learn more about our community and how you can get involved. Welcome.
