Steps of Faith helps uninsured and under-insured amputees get the prosthetics limbs they desperately need to restore their livelihood. We find prosthetists to donate their time to help our patients, and we raise money to cover the cost of prosthetic limbs.
So often we hear of new amputees stuck in a catch-22. They need to get back to work in order to buy a new limb but they need a new limb before they get back to work. We want to help break the cycle and become a partner in this journey.
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.
