Beyond living life with a disability, the financial burden for an amputee can be extraordinary.
Prosthetic limbs range from $10,000 to $100,000, so without health insurance, coming up with this amount of money can seem inconceivable. There are hundreds of simple, daily tasks the average person takes for granted, such as walking up stairs, riding a bike, or simply walking across the room. An amputee knows that even with superhuman strength or years of practice, those tasks can still be impossible without the right prosthetic fit and function. The unfortunate reality is that many amputees often don't have health insurance and the financial coverage provided by insurance companies is often not enough to cover the high cost of prosthetic needs. That’s where Steps of Faith can help.
