Service finds more than lost keys

 ..
..

I am a left arm amputee and a graduate member of The War Amps Child Amputee Program (CHAMP). I was recently fitted with a myoelectric arm thanks to public support of The War Amps Key Tag Service.

My myoelectric arm helps me complete the tasks I run into during everyday life. Not only does it make things easier, but it allows me to become more confident and able in public settings.
2016 marks the 70th anniversary of The War Amps Key Tag Service and, to date, more than 1.5 million sets of lost keys have been returned to their owners.
Although it is a free service, donations provide young amputees with financial assistance for artificial limbs and, while growing up, allow us to go to regional seminars with our parents where we learn about the latest in artificial limbs and meet others just like us.
Thank you to everyone who has supported The War Amps Key Tag Service, which has helped Canadian amputees like me for the past 70 years.
