Abled Amputees of America, a not for profit organization formed to inspire, support and educate. Our main purpose is to give those with limb loss, real hope for their future by helping them grow in body, mind and spirit. A community created to en-Able persons who have lost a limb through birth, disease or surgery, to grow stronger and be able. Hello, my name is Doug Durham RN. Founder of Abled Amputees. I was physically disabled as a child, suffering from a brittle bone syndrome, which led to more hospitalizations than I care to count. I was blessed to have been raised in a Christian home. So, with God's help and the support of my family, I learned to take my problems in stride. I grew to learn that my life is as meaningful as any life ever created. People spoke to me of hope and peace that was out there somewhere... all I had to do was find it. Spending a good part of my childhood encased in a body cast, lying in a hospital bed, I taught myself to play the guitar, to entertain myself. At age 16, I became a right AKA. As my health improved, my guitar playing soared, and allowed me to start a career in music that lasted many years. Music was a perfect distraction from all I had endured yet it was not providing the piece I was seeking. I somehow knew that true happiness would never be mine as long as there were others out there who needed what I had found. God kept nudging me and He wouldn't leave me alone. For this I am very thankful. More than 25 years ago, I finally answered the call as I started my studies in behavioral health nursing. God and I have helped many, many people gain control over anxiety and depression, obesity, diabetes and drug and alcohol addictions. Now, my energy is focused on the amputee world, striving to make a real difference in their lives. This is what I was meant for! This is how I can help you: by coaching not only the body you live in and the mind which governs it, but your spirit in your heart as well. It works. I know.
