Getting amputees

back on their feet.

As the past several months have unfolded, I have been amazed at the consistent and generous support of our clinic partners. The COVID-19 pandemic has forced virtually every industry to re-think, and in some cases, re-invent their approach. Limbs for Life has been no exception. However, through these challenging times the support from our clinic partners has not stopped. For that, we can not say thank you enough!


One of the most challenging hurdles we have faced is the shortage in our soft goods supply, specifically liners, socks, and sleeves. These are heavily requested components as you likely already know. If you would like to help us continue our mission, we would gladly accept any unused soft good donations or component donations you can provide. Some of the specific items we are in great need of include:


● Both locking and cushion liners size medium (24cm) to large plus (32cm).

● Socks!!! All lengths and widths, with pin holes or not, we can use them.

● BK Sleeves size 24cm-32cm

● Bulldog locks

● Bulldog pins

● Kiss Lanyard adaptors

● Lamination/grace plates

● Feet: All sizes and categories are welcomed but specifically K3 and K4 medium/high impact feet and well as feet of African-American skin tone.


If you are able to donate any of these items in any quantity we would be incredibly grateful. If you have any questions about any other items you would like to donate or the process of donating, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Thank you once again for your continued support, understanding, and generosity as we continue to navigate these trying times.

Benson and his prosthetist, Dan Bastian with Progressive O & P in Albertson, NY are pictured. In late 2016 at age 33, Benson lost his leg in a transit train accident. Traversing the mental, physical and emotional trauma of limb loss, Benson met Dan, and began the path back to life and living again.


Benson received his new limb from Limbs for Life earlier this year in partnership with the Progressive Clinic team.


Benson also shares, “As for me, I would like to lend my voice to advocacy for this community of humans and hopefully find ways to help those without limbs to at least


get one – stand in it or raise up their hands and lift their arms again.” His long-range goal is to cross the finish line at the


New York City Marathon one day.

Words are not enough to show my appreciation for what the organization has done for me. I truly believe I would have given up on life without this ability. Thank God for your kindness and understanding, it will never be taken for granted, nor forgotten.

Thank you so very much,

Greg
