The Amputee Coalition is the only national nonprofit organization that serves all individuals who experience limb loss or limb difference. With the mission to support, educate, and advocate for people impacted by limb loss and limb difference, we are dedicated to ensuring that no one faces limb loss alone. We work to provide vital resources to people with limb loss and limb difference, as well as their families and caregivers. With these resources, they can recover, readjust, and live the life they most want to live.

Limb loss affects people of all backgrounds, all income levels, and all ages. 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. Amputee Coalition launched the Inspire to Elevate campaign April 2023 in celebration of Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month. The year-round initiative is designed to elevate awareness about the limb loss and limb difference community.

The purpose of this national awareness campaign is to increase public visibility and awareness for Amputee Coalition’s cause. The overall goal is to spread the word about our mission, vision, and values, explain why they matter, and show supporters how they can get involved.

The key messages in the national TV PSAs highlight:

  • Elevate Your Story. Tell people about your experience through our #WeTHRIVE campaign.
  • Elevate Your Voice. Learn to advocate on behalf of the community with legislators and others who can bring about change.
  • Elevate Your Community. Get involved and inspire others to get involved to make sure no amputee is alone.
  • Elevate Your Potential. Empower yourself to live your best life.

One of the key tenets of the Amputee Coalition is “no amputee alone.” This means that the Amputee Coalition works to ensure that no amputee feels alone at any point in their journey with limb loss or limb difference.  These PSAs will help build awareness for all of the wonderful support and information available through the Amputee Coalition.
