Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month Did you know that every day 507 people join the limb loss community in the US?
That’s a crazy number, right? Until recently, we did not know that number was so big. What does that mean? That means that everyday 507 people need our support, hugs, resources and to be welcomed to our community. Together we can raise that awareness and start to shine a light on this vibrant community and be there for these 507 people in any and every way possible.
How is Click Medical going to bring awareness? We are teaming up with The Liner Wand, who designed some pretty cool baseball style t-shirts that display 507. These shirts are sold on Liner Wand’s website for $19.95 each. Over 100 shirts have already been sold to practitioner offices that are buying them for their staff to wear in April.
FEEL GOOD! All proceeds will be donated to the Range of Motion Project (ROMP) and Camp No Limits. Together, we can bring awareness to our community and also donate to these two great organizations. ROMP is dedicated to providing prosthetic care to those without access to these services and Camp No Limits strives to educate and empower young people with limb loss and limb difference and their families to discover and develop a healthy, happy & independent lifestyle.
