Can-Do-Ability: Answers and Solutions from my personal experiences of living with a disability

Limbs 4 Life

27 Jun 2012On Sunday night I was watching The Project and saw the last bit of a story about amputees playing golf. Today I looked up their website and thought I would share some info with you.

Melissa Noonan lost her right leg in an accident and whilst in a rehabilitation centre she wanted to read current information about her condition and meet other amputees who had overcome their disability and resumed an independent life. This information and service was nowhere to be found in Melbourne at the time.

When Melissa was discharged from the rehabilitation centre she formed the organisation ‘Limbs 4 Life’ as she saw that the community needed a service that would allow amputees to connect with information and others who had been through a similar experience.

Limbs 4 Life can assist with: one-on-one peer support visits, information and resources, social activities and connections and research and publications

Limbs 4 Life started many golf clinics and golfing competitions that has helped amputees get back into playing sport again.

Four years on, Limbs 4 Life is very important and a much sought after organisation with links to amputee support organisations internationally and in other parts of Australia.
