Amputee Life from a Woman’s Perspective gathering, 8/12/2012 – A great opportunity to meet and share with members of our *unique* community!

Attention Southern California Ladies! We are excited to announce the date of our 2nd “Amputee life from a woman’s perspective” event! See below for details…. RSVP soon…and please bring a friend!

“Amputee Life from a Woman’s Perspective”
Hosted by: Bonnie Jones
Date: Sunday, August 12, 2012
Time: 1-6pm
Location: The Mission Viejo, CA home of Bonnie Jones, SCP Patient Advocate and a bilateral amputee
Bring: A bathing suit if you’d like to use the pool, and a “pot luck” dish to share

Come join us for an afternoon among members of our own community – women of all ages who happen to be amputees. As we eat, laugh, and swim, we can share valuable information and understanding of issues unique to us in a relaxed and comfortable environment. No subject will be off limits!

Bonnie Jones has generously offered to host our summer session at her home in Mission Viejo! She has plenty of space, so we encourage you to bring a differently abled friend with you if you’d like, and don’t forget your bathing suit in case you’d like to take advantage of the beautiful pool! Let’s get the word out! The more the merrier (and the more food – ha!)!

Please RSVP to Bonnie at 949.892.5338, and she will provide you with her address at that time.

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.”
