Purpose

Pieces of the Puzzle

  • Limbs for Life has a waiting list of clients who have been approved for funding. It often takes several months before you receive confirmation to proceed with fittings, etc. to move forward with getting your prosthesis.
  • Limbs for Life encourages individuals to apply for other funding sources first. If a client receives any other form of assistance, he/she cannot qualify for funding from Limbs for Life.
