Oklahoma Student Begins Prostheses Awareness Campaign
A medical student at Oklahoma State University is doing his part to raise awareness about losing limbs and prosthetics.
Samuel Shepard is teaming up with Oklahoma City group “Limbs for Life.” He will spearhead a social media campaign that starts Monday.
“If we get everybody to share and kind of push this message out there, we're hoping to drive up awareness, build collaboration, drive up donations, either limbs or monetary," Shepard said.
“The partnership with Samuel and the OSU medical program is just a huge benefit to our work,” said Shelley Dutton, development director for “Limbs for Life.”
“Limbs for Life” provides prosthetics for those who can't afford them. They also accept donated prosthetics to refurbish. The group also recycles the parts and components.
