Children’s Prosthetics

Children are in a perpetual state of growth, which makes access to orthotics and prosthetics especially important. The Jordan Thomas Foundation is committed to providing a supportive community for kids with limb loss and parents of amputees. We create opportunities for families to meet though various activities and events – because we are stronger together. If you would like to connect to other families now, visit our online forum. For more in-depth reading, check out this thoughtful article, Ways Children Adjust to Limb Loss, by the Amputee Coalition.

JTF’s sole purpose is to raise money to help families by not only providing children the prostheses they need throughout childhood and adolescence, but also by serving as a caring resource, advocate, and support system.

Let’s Face It: Giving Feels Good

There is never a ‘great time’ to give. Every moment of every day there is someone out in the world that needs help. Your generosity can bring more meaning to your life…and to the life of the child who is on the receiving end of your gifts whether they are monetary or time and effort. They say it ‘takes a village’ and the Jordan Thomas Foundation wants you to know that you are a part of something great.

Personal Encouragement

Jordan also commits to call, meet and support other amputees and their families.

If you have someone that you would like Jordan to call to encourage, please email us. If you have avenues where you think Jordan may be useful as an advocate or mentor, please let us know and we will try to help. Jordan is a college student and is somewhat limited with his schedule, but he is adamant about helping where he can.

Advocacy & Resources

Jordan is committed to changing the system so that amputees receive the care and prosthetics that they need to lead active and productive lives.

Jordan is very much interested in advocating for parity for prosthetics, i.e. having healthcare coverage for prosthetics the same as any other procedure versus the usual healthcare coverage as a durable, medical equipment with a lifetime limit of $1,000.

Jordan has been to Capitol Hill several times to meet with Senators and Congress to speak about parity and also the need for in hospital rehabilitation for amputees. Jordan partners with the Amputee Coalition of America to lead discussions and bring awareness about life as an amputee.

Believe in Each Other

If you know of a child or young adult who you think could benefit from the mission of this foundation, please have the parent(s) or guardian of the child contact us through our website or info@jordanthomasfoundation.org. They may also call the foundation office at 423.622.9006 and ask for the director.
