The unLIMBited Foundation is committed to making world class limb saving treatment accessible to children from all over the world through direct temporary housing support for families and continued education for surgeons. By providing financial assistance to ease the burden of temporary housing, the unLIMBited Foundation is able to ensure access to life changing treatments for children and families with limited resources.
Through awareness campaigns and a strategic partnership with the world renowned Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute, located in West Palm Beach, Florida, we help provide families with a choice to undergo limb saving treatment instead of unnecessary amputation or living with a lifelong disability. Every dollar raised by the unLIMBitied Foundation’s Financial Aid program goes directly towards providing temporary housing for families with children undergoing treatment at Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute.
Our first contact with a family often comes in the form of a tearful phone call with a desperate parent, hoping to find a way to get the best care for their child. Many families are overwhelmed by the hurdle of traveling hundreds or thousands of miles for treatment and the cost of temporarily relocating, all while caring for their child. At the unLIMBited Foundation, we are proud to be able to reassure families that they have a safe and reliable place to call home for the duration of their child’s treatment.
We serve a global community of families who have children born with congenital limb deficiencies or acquired limb deformities due to a traumatic event. Frequently, their local medical team lacks the experience and resources to save or reconstruct the child’s limb. This leads families from all over the world to seek out the expert care of Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute for their child’s rare and complex orthopedic medical care. Families from all 50 states and over 100 countries are traveling to a country, a state, or a city they may have never been to before. Their touching success stories are a testament to the unLIMBited Foundation’s mission to save limbs and change lives.
The unLIMBited Foundation relies on sponsored fundraising events and individual and corporate donors like you who make it possible for us to achieve our mission to save limbs and change lives. The children and families we serve depend upon us in so many ways. Your charitable contributions make a world of difference, one step at a time.
There are thousands of children living in the United States and across the world who are born with a congenital limb defect or due to traumatic events stand to lose limbs. Many times the attending medical team’s experience and financial resources are deficients to save and correct the limb. With your donation, together with the generosity of others, we can provide opportunities for children to receive limb saving surgeries.
