Home | About Us | Contact Us | Events | Photos | Links | Resources
The Tennessee Valley Amputee Support Group exists to help amputees prepare for and reclaim their lives through faith, work mentorship, peer support and visitation. We will visit patients both pre-op and post-op in order to help them prepare for an upcoming surgery and become adapted to the changes life will hold for them. We will work with all age ranges from children to seniors and have amputees of all ages with a vast supply of knowledge to help with all needs and questions.
Our vision is to be available to all amputees and their family members at all times in order to assist with any questions throughout pre- surgery, the surgery process and the recovery process. Providing all the knowledge we can so that you can be as informed as possible. We also want to help you to reach the highest quality of life possible through help with understanding the latest technology available for your situation.
We will meet on the second Tuesday of each month @ 6:30 pm. Meetings will be scheduled till 8:00 pm, however, they will continue as long as needed to insure all questions are answered and all concerns are taken care of as completely as possible. The venue for the meetings will be changed regularly to help make it convenient for everyone possible.
***** UPDATES *****
I would like to add pictures to our website that are actual pictures of our members living life. Any and all are appreciated and will be added to the website to be viewed by others in hopes they may see that moving forward in life after such a loss is a reality. Anything form sitting on the front porch, watching cars go by to climbing mountains is good. Just make sure they are realistic. Please email them to tvasg2010@gmail.com

I must take a moment here to hopefully explain what the experience of working with others through the support group has meant to myself and the entire support group. We do not hesitate when we find out about someone's need because when God calls we are to answer without hesitation. Following that calling and His lead is the guide that helped all this to come together. If you find yourself in a position to reach out, remember, our paths cross with others because our service is required and our ability is a given gift to use for His calling.

The Board members for the Tennessee Valley Amputee Support Group met on January 12th, 2015 prior to the regular scheduled meeting.

We have called a business meeting to be held during our scheduled meeting set for February 9th, 2015 at Grace United Methodist Church @ 2113 Old Monrovia Rd. Huntsville, AL from 6:30-8:30.

Due to the pending possibility of inclement weather and possible road closures through the day I feel it is best to postpone the meeting scheduled for tonight till next week. Tuesday the 16th @ 6:30 pm. I will verify the facility and update that information as soon as possible.

Thank you and everyone be safe!

The Amputee Coalition of America is a good resourse for and outreach for living life as an amputee. With meesgae boards where you can discuss things openly with other amputees, magazines and outreach resourses, every amputee should look into this organization and what they have to offer.

We will be adding more photos of group members in the near future. We are currently working on a page that will give an upclose and personal look into the members of our group by telling their stories. In order to further our effort to reach out to the community and other amputees we want to make ourselves available for those in need of support in any way.
