Support meaningful health coverage for amputees!

Right now, many amputees are being denied access to an artificial limb. They pay their premiums into private insurance companies, but then those same companies refuse to cover the cost of the prosthesis they need to be active and independent. This is just plain wrong!

The Amputee Coalition of America (ACA) is working to address this at the state and federal level. We launched an online petition in support of meaningful coverage for prosthetic care and less than one week later we already have almost 1,500 signatures. Our goal is to get to 5,000 signatures by the end of May. We need your help to get there!

Please, sign the online petition and send the link (www.amputee-coalition.org/advocacy/petition/) to your friends & family!
