April 2021 IL Newsletter
April is Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month
More than 2 million Americans live with limb loss or limb difference, and more than 28 million are at risk of amputation surgery. We want to educate others about what it’s like to live with limb loss. April 11th & 12th will be a virtual Advocacy Forum where you can get involved and make a difference. Attend both days of education and training and become certified as a Lead Advocate. No one should face limb loss alone. Advocates can help support people to recover, readjust and live life fully.
