Transportation Services To Meetings
Two taxicab companies are equipped to accomodate amputees.

National Limb Loss Information Center
An extremely helpful subset of the ACA is the National Limb Loss Information Center This index page provides access to a tremendous wealth of information. If you can't find what you are looking for, give them a call at 1-888/AMP-KNOW and they will be glad to help. My experience is they have always sent a lot of material in response to any question I asked.

If you are interested in social media, then ACA has a very good Facebook page for you.
