Patient Assistance Program

Since its inception, The Limb Preservation Foundation has provided financial assistance for living expenses to people facing financial challenges while undergoing treatment for a limb-threatening condition.  We believe patients with limb-threatening conditions need to focus on healing, not on whether or not the heat will remain on or if a loved one can be by their side during treatment.

If you are experiencing difficulty meeting your monthly expenses because of the costs of treatment, we are here to help.

Our Patient Assistance Program is supported by AlloSource

The injuries Kelly experienced after a fall from a rooftop onto concrete required five surgeries and a bone graft to put Kelly’s leg back together. Kelly’s treatment and recovery put his handyman business, which was his family’s sole income, at risk. Kelly and his wife, Karla, sold one of their vehicles, his work trailer and his tools to get by during the first few months of his recovery, and Karla went back to work to bring in needed income. However, the mortgage, utility and insurance bills still piled up. Kelly heard about The Limb Preservation Foundation through his physician’s office and applied for assistance with their mortgage and other living expenses.  The Foundation assisted with the family’s mortgage and utility bills.
