Patient Stories


Since 1986, The Limb Preservation Foundation has provided funding for clinical and laboratory research regarding limb preservation, including the treatment of extremity infections.

The patients, both human and canine, shown below are linked in a unique way. This two-way exchange is called translational medicine and is a powerful means by which we can obtain investigational treatment faster. Through our research collaboration with Colorado State University Flint Animal Cancer Center, we are funding and accelerating research that directly translates to improved treatments and outcomes for patients at risk of limb loss due to cancer, trauma and infection.
