As a below the knee amputee resulting from a traumatic accident 20 years ago, I understand first hand how one’s life can change in an instant. I was fortunate to have good health care and an amazing network of family and friends who helped me adjust to my new life as an amputee. Not everyone has access to something as elemental as a prosthesis. ROMP’s mission of providing prosthetic care to those in need mirrors my own wish that people who suffer limb loss are given the tools to return to their life and reach their full potential as human beings.
