SAM RETURNS TO WORK AND PLAY WITH PROSTHETIC LIMB


Sam contacted Limbs for Life, desperate for help to receive a prosthetic limb. He suffered a severe fracture to his right leg which did not heal and resulted in loss of his limb. While he worked in field geology, his insurance did not include prosthetic coverage. This is a common occurrence as most policies require an additional rider for this coverage. Several other circumstances placed Sam in an overwhelming situation, in a wheelchair for six months, having to move from his home, and unable to work. He was on leave from his job and time was running out for him to be able to walk and return to work.

Limbs for Life was able to process his application, connect him to a local prosthetic clinic and fund his first limb. In just a few weeks, Sam was able to walk without crutches or a cane and very soon after, he was back at work and spending time enjoying outdoor activities with his two children.
