Hanger Clinic Celebrates Limb Loss & Limb Difference Awareness Month with Community Recognition Campaign


AUSTIN, Texas – April 3, 2023 – Hanger Clinic is celebrating Limb Loss and Limb Difference Awareness Month (LLLDAM) by hosting a Virtual Recognition Board, where members of the amputee community can recognize a fellow community member who embodies the Amputee Coalition’s 2023 theme “Inspire to Elevate.”

Throughout the month of April, the Recognition Board will be updated with photos and submissions highlighting the impact members of the limb loss and limb difference community have had on one another. Those wishing to participate are invited to use the submission form to recognize a friend, peer mentor, or anyone else who inspires them to elevate. Follow Hanger’s social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter) for updates about the campaign, and scroll through the Recognition Board to learn more about people changing lives in the community.

According to the Amputee Coalition, more than 2.7 million people live with limb loss or limb difference in the U.S., and by 2050, the number of amputees in the U.S. is expected to nearly double. LLLDAM provides a valuable opportunity to support the community and raise awareness about the millions of people living with limb loss and limb difference.
