Merry Christmas from the LIM Ambassadors

December 21st, 2016 | Testimonials

2016 is coming to a close, and throughout the year, you may have interacted with LIM's Ambassadors. With Christmas being celebrated across the World this Saturday, we handed over the blog to our LIMLegends to share their words of wisdom with the entire amputee community. Here's what they had to say:


Tammy Myers words of wisdom:

"You can still accomplish anything you want with a little creativity! Everyone travels at a different pace! Surround yourself with others like you. Knowledge is power! amputeecoalition.org. Your story could help someone else. Be proud of who you are!"

Pamela Selinski words of wisdom:

"I recently have had the opportunity to speak with several new amputees and their first question is how long does it take.  I've been telling them patience is not only a virtue it is a necessity when you have limb loss. Pearls of Wisdom = Be Patient"

Carlos Gonzalez words of wisdom:

"I am humbled by The grace of God, I have become an advocate for others who don't have the courage. Allow me to be your voice by being a example of hope and faith. Walk on!"

Doug Van Pool words of wisdom:

"Don't let amputation define you. We are so much more than that. Advocate, educate, elucidate. Lead others that share your fate. Be that shining light, like the morning star, always steady, always bright. And Never, Never quit!"

Deborah Smith words of wisdom:

"I’m fortunate to be part of the LIM team in the Midwest, and was fit with our TT socket in May.  As an amputee one of the most rewarding aspects of my role with LiM is working with others with limb loss. When I became an amputee 1½ years ago I quickly realized I’d joined an incredible community of people. I’m grateful to hear their stories, learn from them, and help with journeys towards increased comfort and mobility.

Just as we prepare and plan step by step for holiday celebrations, our incremental efforts each day toward our goals as prosthetic wearers can culminate in wonderful accomplishments and celebration. There are so many organizations out there to help us be as active as we can dream, whatever our physical challenge may be. Thank you dare2tri.org, juddgoldmansailing.org, adaptivegolf.org!

Merry Christmas, Happy Celebrations, and New Year to all!"

Jim Demas words of wisdom:
"At the Holidays, it’s always a time to reflect on things for which to be thankful.  As a recent amputee in April 2015, it has been important for me as an active person to get my life back.  Since May 2016, as one of the first beta testers of the Infinite TT and now wearing the final version, I’ve experienced spectacular improvement over using traditional sockets.  It has truly been a remarkable 7 months with the Infinite TT.
So in this season of gift giving, my wish is for anyone in need of a below the knee socket to give yourself the best gift ever… greatly increased mobility and freedom with supreme comfort.  There’s no better feeling than getting your life back!  I’m so thankful for the Infinite TT and all the wonderful people at LIM who have made it happen."

Tess Deddo words of wisdom:
"I remember hearing that the road from amputation to running is a long, slow process. But me - I wanted to run before I walked, but they kept saying "first you walk, then you run." And it was a long, slow process; a day at a time, but once I was walking and comfortable in my prosthesis, I found I could do things I couldn't do with my biological foot. Others' perception of "disabled" is interesting: before my amputation no one could see how painful it was for me to walk; I felt disabled then.  Since my amputation, I would say most people see me (or anyone with a prosthesis) as disabled, when I feel, now more than ever, very "able."  I think anyone who knows me does not see me as disabled, since I can physically do more now than I had ever done before. Happy me."
