I am Doug Campbell and a bilateral amputee BKA and have been for 4 years now. I am trying to reach out to as many amputees both new and seasoned to let them know that support and resources are available. I have self authored an amputee resource book for those new amputees to better understand the stages they will go through, answer questions they have and provide resource links to many helpful organizations. I have teamed up with the War Amps of Canada to access all their free resources as well. Most recently I have incorporated a Foundation. MARAA, Mentors and Resources for Amputees of Alberta. This foundation will provide 24/7 support, mentorship and resources either pre surgery or immediately after your surgery.The funds will be used to supply orthopedic hospital units, clinics and prosthetist offices with awareness posters and inital resource package from the MARAA Foundation. Having this Foundation to be able to do its work will allow perhaps thousands of amputees the offering of support before and after their surgery which to this point is not happening at all.
