Miracle Limbs-Courage in Motion, a Florida non-profit corporation is the vision of Bob Ayres, an above the knee amputee. This organization provides support to his fellow amputees so that they may more easily navigate the physical, psychological and financial hurdles that accompany the experience of losing a limb. Miracle Limbs answers a severe need not fully addressed in the non-profit community.
Our mission is to actively seek pre and post surgery patients, providing them full and tailored support in the areas of professional and peer counseling, financial assistance when needed, local support group development, and referrals to credible and well-respected specialists and organizations to support their emotional and physical needs.
Miracle Limbs is a registered 501(c)(3) organization.
We assisted a record number of new recipients in Florida this past year. Our newest is little Florica who lives in Immokalee but was buried in the Haitian earthquake rubble for 7 days. Her leg was poorly amputated and for the last three years she has been in great pain, can seldom walk, and yet remains unbelievably positive.
Miracle Limbs has arranged for orthopedic surgery and hospital services at no cost to correct her previous surgery and to allow proper future fittings. We will be working with her for years to come as she outgrows her limbs.
