THE STORY:

Heather Abbott Foundation wrote -

The Heather Abbott Foundation was formed as a result of Heather's amputation following the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013. As a new leg amputee, Heather got a fast lesson in the tremendous cost of prosthetic devices, which are often times not covered by health insurance. In order to live her life as close to the way she had prior to the bombing, she needed four different prosthetic devices which range in cost between $20,000 and $70,000. Aside from the walking leg that health insurance typically covers, Heather wanted legs for running, wearing high heels and swimming and taking a shower. Thanks to donations from individuals all over the world, the help of charitable organizations and good health insurance coverage, Heather obtain all four legs and credits them to her quick recovery and ability to return to her independent lifestyle. Heather learned early on that having her custom prostheses allowed her to return to doing the things that meant the most to her. Whether it was being able to paddle board again or wear high heels, these devices were key to Heather’s emotional and physical healing. But she recognized that the unusual circumstances and attention around the manner in which she became an amputee, in large part, are what got her those legs. Most people's amputations are not as highly publicized and people aren't aware that they may need help. The Heather Abbott Foundation was created to help other amputees like Heather thrive in their recovery and return to the life they love. Join us as Heather helps to “pay it forward.”
