New Research Results in Roadmap for Success for Amputees and Comprehensive Amputee Resources Page
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 17, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The Cure Our Children Foundation, a nonprofit charitable foundation dedicated to children, announced today the availability of its research entitled “How to Succeed as an Amputee and The Amputee Resources Page.” Now, a consolidated group of articles, resources, guidance, and a success checklist is available for those who have undergone an amputation, and for their families, advocates, and social workers. When it comes to the right prosthesis, the best amputee advocacy groups, and a roadmap for success, this resource page is the first place to go.
Research revealed that providing the right resources, motivation, and guidance for amputees is a key factor in life success. All amputees, including children, cancer survivors, veterans, and others, have challenges in common, including pain, phantom pain, post-traumatic stress, and getting and paying for the best medical care and prostheses. All of these issues are addressed in the articles along with extensive advocacy organization contact information, including information on connecting with fellow amputees.
Key elements of the research include:
- The most current medical and psychological techniques, resources, and experts to assist in overcoming pain, phantom pain, and post-traumatic stress.
- Access to the most advanced prostheses and extensive information on dealing with insurance reimbursement and locating financial help from foundations.
- Comprehensive resources for connecting with other amputees and amputee organizations to foster success in life.
- Names, phone numbers, references, and Web links to sources of information about existing amputee sports and life activities.
The foundation’s amputee research and resources page is available at no cost at: http://www.cureourchildren.org/amputee.htm
The Cure Our Children Foundation identifies important under-researched children’s issues and devotes extensive resources to educate and guide parents, professionals, government and the public. The foundation receives thousands of website visits every month. The results of the research are provided as a free public service, and are supported by donations to the foundation. The foundation has a number of other research projects underway that will benefit families.
