President Barack Obama Recognizes April 2012 as Limb Loss Awareness Month

On Monday, April 2, The White House released a letter from President Barack Obama recognizing April 2012 as Limb Loss Awareness Month.

“As a nation, we must remain committed to ensuring that those living with limb loss have the support they need to reach their greatest potential,” wrote President Obama. “We must also provide those at risk with information that can help prevent this condition. Greater public knowledge of the causes and warning signs is essential to decreasing the rates of preventable limb loss,” the letter continued, “and by working with the limb loss community, we can help reduce new cases.”
