I volunteer with the AC because it is an amazing organization with a small mighty group of individuals that need as much assistance as feasible to get there message out. Individuals with amputation need the AC and needed to be informed of all the benefit and support the AC can provide. I am honestly a “boots on the ground” passionate champion of all things AC.
