April is Limb Loss Awareness Month (LLAM)
On this page, you will find how we commemorated LLAM in 2020.
Stay tuned for our 2021 plans!

Before we get to our awareness and celebratory activities for the month of April, we want to acknowledge that we are living in uncertain times right now.  COVID-19 has caused most of us to hunker down, stay at home, and maintain physical distance to stay safe.  We do not know how long this is going to last so, here at the Amputee Coalition, we are going to Be Strong and make the best of it by finding ways to connect and support one another… particularly those living with limb loss and limb difference.

Since April is Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month (LLAM), we want to spend time this month raising awareness about what it is like to live with limb loss and limb difference, for individuals and families.  We will provide ways to educate and connect communities, empower individuals and families living with limb loss and limb difference to be a voice, and further the mission of the Amputee Coalition.

We will be adding new tools and resources to this Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month webpage often.  Some of the in-person community events and activities we would normally promote in April are being altered as a result of our country’s new precautions against COVID-19. We are thinking creatively, and we hope you will too, to recognize and celebrate #LLAM and #LimbLossAwareness engagement while keeping our community members safe. So, please check back with us regularly as we will have new opportunities popping up on this page all month long.

Also, please engage us on our social media channels — we’ll be sharing tips and ideas there, too. You can find us on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.

If you need support, educational materials, or other resources about how to live well with limb loss and limb difference, our National Limb Loss Resource Center is here for you.  You can call us at 1-888-267-5669 x1, or contact us via this web form.
