About our Monthly Meetings:
We welcome you to join us in the evening for our monthly get together.  If you have never been here with the group, it’s a relaxing evening.  We gather around the table in our kitchen area.  Sometimes we are treated with great food or snacks depending on what everyone brings.  Do not feel obligated to bring anything, but if you do, we will be sure to enjoy it.  There is no pressure to chat – you are welcome to just come and listen.  It’s a great way to meet new friends, and learn something new.  Usually someone has had a similar experience and can share tips on how to manage.  Also – if you have any technical questions for Mark, he will be there.  Please invite your spouse, friend, helper or anyone else you know with limb loss.  You do not have to be our patient, and don’t be fooled by the name.  All people with limb loss are invited, even if you do not wear a prostheses.

Thanks for all you do to help each other in the limb loss community.
