Through my son, Logan's, life journey, I have been privileged to attend and be a part of amazing limb loss camps, clinics and training. Together, he and I have only scratched the surface of all the wonderful programs in place for those with limb loss.
There are so many amazing camps and clinics for Logan to explore and experience. I know others within the limb loss community also feel the same way, and to whom would greatly benefit from all that is available but cannot afford the opportunities.
It was through my experience and research that I noticed a need, a missing piece to help make these special camps attainable to any and all who wanted to experience them… there was not a single organization devoted to providing grants for airfare to youth and adults affected by limb loss (and for their families) to be able to attend camps and clinics offered nationally.
So what did I do? I took action and formed 'Giving to Fly', a 501c3 that provides grants to children, teenagers and adults (and a family member) whom have been affected by limb loss, with airline tickets to be able to attend camps, clinics and trainings which would otherwise be unavailable to them.
These opportunities to participate in limb loss camps are valuable, they enrich the lives of those who attend and often times profoundly change the individual to the core. These camps physically, socially and emotionally provide so much to those affected by limb loss that I saw the need and formed Giving to Fly.
Donate to Giving to Fly and help grant the gift of flight to amputees and change a life forever.
