Feedback from our Amputee Life from a Woman’s Perspective discussion on 1/15/2012

Thought we’d share with you a few messages we received from the wonderful ladies who attended our first “Amputee life from a woman’s perspective” discussion on January 15th. We are already planning our next event – which will include an activity of some sort (maybe an intro to Yoga!). Stay tuned!!!…….

“I spent a lovely and inspiring afternoon yesterday with 23 other women, ages 20 to 80, all living with some degree of amputation, all active contributors to our society and all whom I would be honored to have as friends. We ate, laughed and talked about issues that only we could understand. Thank you Bonnie for making this happen!

“….What I thought was most interesting about the members of the group is that they all have stories to tell that are heartwarming – showing their bravery and determination to not be limited by their limb loss or limb differences.”
