New England Amputee Association’s mission is to reach out to people with limb loss and provide a supportive environment where information and experiences are shared and friendships are formed.
What We Do
Provide guest speakers at our monthly group meetings to inform amputees and their families on a wide range of topics relating to living with limb loss.
Other group activities include annual cookouts, holiday parties, and various other functions throughout the year.
We have ACA Certified Peer volunteers to visit recent amputees and their families.
Attend health fairs; speak to organizations and schools to educate people about living with limb loss.
You Are Not Alone
Over 2 million Americans live with limb loss. Each year, on average, 185,000 amputations are performed in the United States.
Losing a limb is a significant loss. Don’t let a limb loss prevent you from living your life; there are actions that you can take by coming to our meetings and letting us help you gain knowledge in how to cope with limb loss.
If you have any questions or concerns about living with limb loss, please don’t hesitate to e-mail one of the group members for more information.

Each year there are millions of amputees nationwide that acknowledge
the month of April as being Limb Loss Awareness month. There are
also 28 million people that are at risk for an amputation.
In order to raise the general publics’ awareness, The New England Amputee
Association is planning our annual Limb Loss Awareness Walk-a-thon.
Our group will be teaming up with Orchard Hill Athletic Club for the use of their inside walking track forthis event. The athletic club has graciously let us use their facility on Sunday, April 28 from noon to 3pm.
Powered by strength, courage, and support our group is hoping to get as many in the community involved as possible. Limb loss does not need to stand in the way of all kinds of athletic activities. Remember, we can go “from limb loss to limitless.”
