Our Story

My husband and I are on a mission to improve communication and support amongst all amputees and their families. Leigh lost his leg 8 years ago due to an operation that went horribly wrong. We did not know if we could have children and were blessed with 2 treasures in the last 5 years.

Since the amputation and having children we have found it very difficult to find support groups or other friends in such situations. It is quite a lonesome disability, there is a lack of understanding in the general public and government as to what amputation means for an individual and a family. Hence why we have formed STEEL BONES with the help from the business community and amputee families.
