Local amputee learns it’s what’s left that counts

Georgia Hamilton, 15, of Cranbrook, attended the recent War Amps 2017 Child Amputee (CHAMP) Seminar in Calgary, which brought together young amputees and their families.

Georgia is a double arm amputee and is eligible for financial assistance for artificial limbs and recreational devices, as well as regional seminars through the CHAMP Program. The theme of the Seminar, “It’s what’s left that counts!”, was a motto adopted by the war amputee veterans who founded the Association in 1918, and is still reflected in the spirit of the CHAMP Program today.

CHAMP is funded through public support of The War Amps Key Tag and Address Label Service. For more information, call 1-800 250-3030 or visit waramps.ca.
