The Limbs for Life Foundation is a global nonprofit organization dedicated to providing fully-functional prosthetic care for individuals who cannot otherwise afford it and raising awareness of the challenges facing amputees. Fortunately, high tech prosthetic devices that restore a person's basic skills and independence are available. Unfortunately, many amputees lack the financial resources to obtain adequate prosthetic care. This is where Limbs For Life steps in. As you can imagine, this organization helps many veterans in our country, whose lives have been permanently changed by warfare.
