OUR VISION

     The Saving Limbs Foundation (SLF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing education and assistance to people who are suffering from the debilitating effects of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). SLF's goal is to address the lack of awareness and understanding of treatment options that are available to help in combating this vascular disease.

     Millions of people unknowingly suffer from symptoms or condone risk factors that can lead to bypass surgery or amputation from the complications of PAD. 

The CDC estimates that only 25% of this disease’s population are aware of the risks associated with undiagnosed PAD. 

     Even worse, many patients are told that amputation is the only way to alleviate the pain and daily debilitation this disease causes. This is due, in part, to patients and/or doctors ignoring/misdiagnosing the symptoms and because many patients do not consult with a team of vascular specialists before agreeing to an amputation. Thus, we envision a limb salvaging patient experience that answers questions about the disease and its symptoms as quickly as possible, in real-time and readily available. We know that assessing the symptoms at their onset can lead to proper diagnoses and better treatment options; safeguarding and oftentimes preventing the issue worsening.

YOU Can Save A Limb

All donations go towards treatments, education and funding to help people suffering from Peripheral Artery Disease. 

OUR MISSION

  • To provide access to education and assistance to current and future patients who may be suffering from PAD and Vein Disease
  • To bring financial assistance, as possible, to those in need
  • To host quarterly and yearly events, which raise awareness and funding, to aid in the fight against this crippling disease

What is Peripheral Arterial Disease:

PAD, Peripheral Arterial Disease, is characterized by narrowing or blockage of the arteries that carry oxygenated blood to extremities such as the limbs, head and internal organs. This blockage, called atherosclerosis, is caused by fatty buildup, plaque, that impedes upon normal blood flow. When arteries are blocked, your body begins to deteriorate, causing stroke, amputation and even death. PAD is predominant in men and women above 40 with a variety of risks and predispositions...

Over 1 million people in the United States have had one or more of their limbs (generally the lower extremity) removed due to PAD, per statistics reported by the Amputee Coalition.

The SLF will not rest until we see this trend on a rampant decline!
