Calling all LIM359′ ers! Ever wanted to share a little bit more about yourself with other members? Well, there is still time for you to become the focus of this month’s LIM359 member bio.
Since it’s your story, you decide what to say. It could be a story of particular significance, or maybe just your picture and a few lines about you. Either way, it’s quick and easy, and it just might turn out to be your connection with some wonderful new friends.
So far, this project has been a great success (check out Paul’s story here), so let’s keep the ball rolling! Please contact me at email@example.com with your email and phone number, and I will take it from there. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Paul Deines has been an enthusiastic, 50-something member of LIM359 for the past year. He has been living with with limb loss since 2011 when, after stepping on a nail, infection swept through his foot. In just over a month, Paul lost first a toe, then his foot, and finally his leg due to the infection that ensued.
However, very little keeps Paul from creating, pursuing, and accomplishing his personal and professional goals. For example, he has made a career of expressing his creative side through his lifelong passion for photography. See bluedolphinfotography.smugmug.com/ for more thought-provoking samples.
Paul spends considerable time and effort in pursuit of his passion, sometimes traveling alone in the hunt for the perfect shot. Last fall, for example, when he shot scenic photos of aspens in their stunning gold colors. On a personal level, however, when he’s back in the big city, Paul greatly values LIM359 events, where he can put aside all else and just hang out with other members.
Bottom line? Paul enjoys attending LIM359 events for the chance it offers him to interact with other amputees in an unpretentious, straightforward setting. That said, he may well have found a good home for those traits, given the group’s open and unpretentious nature.
Interested in meeting Paul and/or other LIM359 members? The next LIM359 event is afternoon mini golf, April 25, 2015. Hope to see you there!
Are you interested in sharing a little about yourself with other LIM359 members? I can help! I am actively seeking LIM359 members who might wish to make some new acquaintances or even rekindle old ones. Just e-mail me your contact information at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll provide all the details.
Effect of Parental Limb Loss on Parenting and Child Function
What does the study involve?
The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of parental amputation on child psychological function and parenting stress. This study uses an online survey consisting of 85 questions. Anyone who has experienced limb loss within the past 5 years and has a child in the home under the age of 18 may participate in this study.
How long does it take?
The study consists of about 85 questions and should take no longer than 15 minutes to complete.
What do I get for being in the study?
You will be able to participate in psychology research first-hand on a topic that currently has very little research with the hopes that this knowledge will help families with limb loss in the future.
