The Heather Abbott Foundation was formed following the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013, where Heather’s injuries required amputation of her left leg, below the knee. Being thrust into the world of prosthetic devices, Heather got a fast lesson on the tremendous cost associated with them, the lack of health care coverage that exists and the various devices need for activities other than walking; like running, swimming and even wearing high heels! Thanks to lots of support and donations, Heather is back to doing all of the activities she loved before her injury. Now, Heather is an Amputee Peer Counselor, who helps new amputees adjust to their “new normal”, as others did for her. She created the foundation in order to help fellow amputees obtain the prosthetic devices they need to resume their old lives, as closely as possible, or try new activities with the prosthetic devices they need. Come out, and demonstrate our motto Live. Your. Life! And learn more about Heather’s story and mission.
