MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 15, 2015 09:39 AM
From: Representative Robert F. Matzie
To: All House members
Subject: Resolution Recognizing April 2015 as “Limb Loss Awareness Month” in Pennsylvania
 
In the near future, I plan on introducing a resolution recognizing April 2015 as “Limb Loss Awareness Month” in Pennsylvania.

Almost 2 million Americans of all ages, races and genders have had amputations and another 28 million Americans are at risk for amputation. Each day, an average of 500 Americans lose a limb. Limb loss can result from many factors including vascular deficiencies, bone malignancies, congenital defects or as the result of an accident. It is a lifetime condition and the general public is largely unaware of the challenges, physically, emotionally and financially, facing amputees and their families.

Please consider joining me in helping to raise awareness of the plight faced by those who have lost a limb by recognizing April 2015 as “Limb Loss Awareness Month” in Pennsylvania.
