About Us

Changing Lives

J'lyn All American Amputee Foundation, was established in 2006.  Our organization strives to build and strengthen a person's mind and body in order to increase self-esteem, allowing the person to use his or her artistic and creative abilities.  With this purpose, children, youth, and adults can Empower themselves to live a social and fully informed lifestyle.  Despite being an amputee, it is clearly understood that "life goes on".

This is done by offering several services, classes, and programs to help amputees

in a positive and caring environment.


What Makes Us Different?


Communication - we begin with communicating strong learning, empowerment that can easily be transferred into the real world, which includes one on one, as well as small and large group settings which develops into the person's understanding about his or her ability to recover with the ability to live life as an amputee.

Encouragement - we give the amputee encouragement to be creative, become self-motivated, and have a positive approach to their lifestyle as they move into meaningful friendships and relationships with their caregivers and families.  This can be a proven contribution to their success and living with limb loss.
