ETPP Partners with The Amputee Coalition of British Columbia

A unique partnership has been struck by End The Pain Project and The Amputee Coalition of British Columbia, both serving the needs of amputees.
The mission of The Amputee Coalition of BC is to support and empower amputees through education, advocacy, physical activity and mentoring. Its vision to ensure that every amputee in British Columbia has the tools, guidance and support that will enable them to lead full and productive lives to the extent of their ability is in line with the mission and vision of End The Pain Project.

Plans are in the works for the two organizations to jointly operate an Amputee Re-Entry Centre in Richmond, B.C. starting in January, under the auspices of Dr. Don Nixdorf, a widely esteemed BC chiropractor and advocate for amputees. 

Keep watching this blog for the actual opening date and the services that will be provided to amputees.
