Prevent Amputation

The Hope of Healing Foundation® is the way this group of physicians, with several of their patients who were saved from amputation, has chosen to help meet these needs. The Foundation is dedicated to limb salvage and wound healing, fighting against all odds to bring hope.

Our Mission

The Importance of Healing

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.

Fifth Palliative Wound Care Conference

A wonderful time was had in Orlando, Florida for the 5th conference.
Unfortunately attendance was lower than anticipated, thus funding was also in low supply.
We are not planning a 6th conference at this time, maybe in the future.

How can I protect my limbs?

  • 1. Have your feet screened to determine if you are at risk.
  • 2. 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.
  • 3. Share with others the information you learn about maintaining healthy feet.
