The unLIMBited Foundation

Our first goal is to provide resources to save children's limbs through today's advanced medical technologies . Many times families are offered amputation as the sole solution to complex limb anomalies. Through our awareness campaign and strategic partnership with the world renowned Pediatric Orthopedic Limb Correction Surgeon, Dr. Dror Paley and his team at The Paley Orthopedic and Spine Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida, we can offer correction as the solution versus amputation. The unLIMBited Foundation is unique in that it is one of, if not the only charitable endeavor advocating and providing financial assistance for ​limb saving treatments versus medically unnecessary amputations.
