    Below are links to various support groups, youth camps, and scholarship sites I have found around the web which focus on ABS and/or limb differences and shared as a resource collection only. UB and its author are not affiliated with these sites nor responsible for anything posted on them. I have copied tidbits from each site to give you an idea of what each is about (no copy-write issues intended, credit to each site author).

    Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center: The Orthopedic Program is dedicated to providing services to persons who have undergone hip and knee replacements, multiple traumas, suffered lower extremity fractures, undergone recent lower or upper extremity amputations, or have had other orthopedic procedures such as spinal fusion surgery. The staff is dedicated to helping the patient regain the greatest level of independence and enjoy the highest quality of life. The program focuses on acute pain management, improving mobility and range of motion, strengthening, patient and caregiver education, and improving the patient’s ability to complete activities of daily living. Orthopedic inpatient rehabilitation is generally of short duration with follow-up care provided by home health agencies or outpatient clinics.

    Shriners Hospital: Shriners Hospitals for Children provide care for children in specialty areas of Orthopaedics, Burn Care, Spinal Cord Injury, and Cleft Lip and Palate, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
