Our Mission:

 

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.

Our Vision:

Access to prosthetic care for all

 

The Need:

  • In the U.S., 507 people lose a limb each day; 2.1 million Americans live with limb loss

  • When a person loses a limb, they are faced with staggering emotional and financial lifestyle changes

  • Prosthetic devices can restore basic skills and independence but are not available to all amputees

  • Some state Medicaid programs, including Texas, Oklahoma and Mississippi, DO NOT provide prosthetic limbs for adults

Our Response:

We provide a financial bridge between amputees and the quality prosthetic care they need to restore their lives.

OUR HISTORY

The Limbs for Life Foundation was established in 1995.  Prosthetist John A. Sabolich saw a need to assist amputees who did not have insurance coverage for prosthetics.  His passion for helping amputees was deep-rooted in his family’s history, as his father Lester opened his first prosthetic clinic in Oklahoma City in 1947. Sabolich grew up watching his father give the gift of movement through prosthetic care.  His vision for a global network comprised of clinics and partners to assist amputees in need continues through Limbs for Life Foundation.

Since its inception, Limbs for Life has provided thousands of new prosthetic limbs to amputees across the United States.  Many more  amputees are helped with the distribution of used prosthetic parts and components shared through international partnerships and missions, empowering amputees on five continents.
