In a country where a limb amputation occurs once every six minutes, alternatives must be explored. The Hope of Healing Foundation® is dedicated to limb salvage and wound healing, bringing hope to those who suffer from wounds and are facing amputation. The mission of this foundation is to educate the public and medical professionals about, and advocate for, methods of preventing amputations and promoting wound healing.
Did You Know?!?
In the United States, there is one amputation every 6 minutes! That adds up to 82,000 limb amputations each year for diabetic patients due to wounds, pain, and poor circulation.
Worldwide, there is one amputation every 30 seconds.
Most wounds are due to neuropathy that causes loss of feeling in the feet.
How can I prevent amputation?
Have your feet screened to determine if you are at risk.
If you experience pain, tingling, or numbness in your feet, or detect redness, blisters, calluses, or any sign of trauma, see your doctor without delay for and evaluation.
Share with others the information you learn about maintaining healthy feet.
