Founded by Heather Abbott, victim of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, The Heather Abbott Foundation helps provide customized prostheses to those who have suffered limb loss through traumatic circumstances.
While most insurance companies cover the costs of a single, basic prosthetic device, additional specialized prosthetic devices can range from $20,000-$100,000 each, an amount which is simply out of reach for many.
These custom prosthetics can be crucial to an individual’s recovery, helping them resume the activities and hobbies they loved before their traumatic incident, and helping them ease into their “new normal.”
By providing these individuals with the prostheses they need, the Heather Abbott Foundation seeks to empower those who have tragically lost limbs to return to the life they love.
The Grants Application process is now open.
Individuals seeking specialized prostheses can get more information and apply here.
