The War Amps CHAMPS Program is built on the Winner’s Circle philosophy, which encourages child amputees (Champs) to accept their amputations and develop a positive approach to challenges.
Thanks to donor support of the Key Tag Service, The War Amps is able to provide funding for the artificial limbs and devices Champs need to lead independent and active lives.
Audrey and Leah built a strong friendship after meeting through the CHAMP Program. Together, they demonstrate The War Amps philosophy of “amputees helping amputees.”
Feranmi was born with complications affecting both legs and the doctors said the best option to allow him to walk properly was amputation. He was fitted with his first set of artificial legs at the age of two and, today, can achieve anything he sets his mind to.
Jaelynn is an independent five-year-old who has learned to do all kinds of things using her myoelectric arm. Jaelynn says, “My arm helps me do everything! It opens and closes when I move my muscles.”
Dylan was enrolled in the CHAMP Program after he developed bacterial meningitis that resulted in multiple amputations. His adaptive bicycle, funded by donations to the Key Tag Service, lets him go on rides with friends and helps him with mobility.
Sophia is proud of the “helping hands” she uses to achieve her goals. Her dad says, “With the support of The War Amps, Sophia has all the tools she needs to overcome the challenges that come with being an amputee.”
One day when Darevin was playing, he got too close to a lawn mower and lost his foot. Now, he warns kids to spot the danger before they play so that they won’t have a serious accident like he had.
Upon learning their daughter Audrey would be born missing an arm, her parents enrolled her in the CHAMP Program. Today, she learns from other amputees at seminars and uses her myoelectric arm to do tasks independently.
The War Amps has opened up a world of possibilities for Megan by helping with the cost of her artificial arms, like the waterproof swim arm that gives her safety and balance in the water.
When Jericho was born, he was missing bones in the lower parts of both legs, and a double amputation was his best option for a full and active life. Today, Jericho has special running legs that help put a little bounce in his step!
Zoe was running in the yard when she slipped and fell into the path of a riding lawn mower and lost her leg below the knee. Today, she leads an active life thanks to the support of her family and The War Amps CHAMP Program.
Benjamin can’t remember a time when he didn’t wear an artificial limb and is grateful for the artificial limbs he needs to enjoy swimming and other activities with his friends and family.
