So you if you are like me…

You are an amputee, you live the Amputee Life and you are proud of it! My prosthetic guy asked me if I wanted my prosthetic leg to look like a “real leg”, I said: “Ah, no! We live in the age of robotics, I will wear my “metal” like a badge of honor!”

No, I don’t have a great story of heroics to tell or anything like that.  But, I lived through many years of pain and fighting to get my amputation so I could have a better quality of life.

Now that I have my prosthetic leg, I know people are going to look, stare and start awkward conversations, awkward for them anyway!

So, I try and break the ice, I wear my, “leg story $5” t-shirt and bright colored festive socks!  Believe it or not, it takes a lot of the awkwardness out of it. Some people will just laugh and say “I love your sock!” or “so, what is your story?” I will just laugh and say: “no story, I just need the $5.00!”  I get a laugh or two and brighten someone’s day, and it’s quite fun for me.

Until now, I have shopped around on the web to find funny amputee shirts.  I recently “stumbled” over (amputee humor)  Amputee Life Clothing on Facebook.  And, I want to tell you, I love what they are doing. AMPUTEE LIFE® CLOTHING offers unique, inspiring, high-quality apparel representing that AMP LIFE.

They are not just marketing clothing to a niche market, they are giving back as well!

Together we can make a difference. We are proud to give back to our community and have teamed up to support 50 Legs an amazing non-profit foundation. 10% of every purchase will be donated to this amazing cause to help amputees with the necessary care and prosthetics that they could not otherwise afford, to help them live a happier and healthier life, to advocate for amputee’s needs for proper prosthetics and foster public education and awareness.

This is not a “paid” endorsement for AMPUTEE LIFE® CLOTHING.  Our sole purpose of the Amputee Resource Guide to gather and share resources for amputees. I am proud to include Amputee Life Clothing on The Amputee Resource Guide. #AMPLIFE, amputees supporting amputees!

(Excerpt from

Life can change in an instant.  Life can throw you too many obstacles.

We are all Born & Built chAMPions Pushing Limits.

As an Amputee or someone with Adaptive Abilities, life is full of them. The struggle is daily. On October 22, 2012, while riding home on my Harley, I was hit by a car causing me to hit and get wrapped around a pole. I survived this near fatal Hit & Run accident but was left to suffer multiple life changing injuries. My right leg was amputated above the knee.  I was left with nerve damage to my left leg and drop foot as well as a Brachial Plexus Injury causing nerve damage to my left arm.

This journey has not been an easy one, but I do know that all of us, as Amputees and all of us with Adaptive Abilities possess an INNERSTRENGTH like no other.  Every day we push hard to move forward.  We Inspire. AMPLIFE is about that INNERSTRENGTH that it takes to live life without limits.

AMPLIFE CLOTHING was created to inspire Amputees and those with Adaptive ABILITIES!  Impossible is just an opinion.  Every day, we push thru, AGAINST ALL ODDS.

112 stands for AMPLIFE.

A=1 for the 1st letter  L=12 for the 12th letter of the alphabet.

112, our number that represents the INNERSTRENGTH, Determination, Courage that of all us, with Adaptive Abilities and as Amputees have. Pushing limits every day.

As Amputees, we are all Death Cheaters and have survived our own battles.  Every day we get up and fight.

It’s all about the motto “CAN’T STOP * WON’T STOP * REFUSE TO STOP”

AMPUTEE LIFE® CLOTHING  is a Lifestyle Brand that offers unique, inspiring,  high-quality apparel representing that AMP LIFE. Be Proud. Push Limits. Inspire.

It’s all about that AMPLIFE Attitude!

As I set upon my amputee journey, I find new resources almost every day, from sources of inspiration, resources available to amputees and support groups for amputees and their families alike. To me, healing is in sharing and an important part of my daily recovery. The sole purpose of the web page is to gather and share resources for amputees and their support groups!
