At the Amputee Coalition, we INSPIRE TO ELEVATE 24/7/365, but that goal is especially important to us during Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month. In fact, that is our theme for April 2023.
One important way for us to inspire is to ELEVATE YOUR STORY. In April, we have three ways to help you do just that.
- For the first time, we are publishing a special online edition of inMotion magazine to celebrate Awareness Month.
- We encourage you to post your own #WeTHRIVE story on our THRIVE blog.
- Our online community, AC Connect, is up and running. It’s a great place to share.
The special edition of inMotion will contain the familiar and popular sections of the print magazine such as Living With Limb Loss and Limb Difference, Your Well-Being, and Your Voice Matters. You can read about the updated mission, vision, and values of the Amputee Coalition and our upcoming public service announcement for television and the internet.
#WeTHRIVE gives you a chance to tell your story in your own words. Many members of our community have taken advantage of the opportunity to introduce themselves. If you haven’t done so, now is a good time. Even if you have, you can post an update, give advice, tell us something unexpected you have learned about living with limb loss or limb difference.
AC Connect allows you to speak at the community or the individual level. Most important, along with telling your story, you can hear about others. You never know what common thread might spark a conversation or make a difference in your life.
We hope you join us on the journey during Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month.
Help promote Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month and join the conversation on social media using #InspireToElevate #LLLDAM, #LLAM, #NoAmputeeAlone, and #WeThrive.
