Hello and welcome to the newest online resource and directory for amputees in Canada and around the world. I have put together a collection of Canadian and International links to amputee and disability related web sites to provide quick access to some of the best amputee resources available.
By doing so, I hope you will find some useful amputee information that will help you cope with your amputation and phantom pain experiences.
My name is Larry Gardner, and I have been an above knee amputee since 1974, almost 30 years.
I lost my left leg above the knee as a result of a motor vehicle accident involving a motorcycle and a car.
A year or so later, I became seriously involved in disabled sports, including competitive swimming and skiing, and recreational sports such as cycling and amputee waterskiing.
I hope that by sharing my experiences and those of other amputees, and by providing a current directory of amputee and disability resources, that I will be of some assistance in dealing with your amputation or coping with your phantom limb pain.
