To help create awareness that there is an alternative to amputation, and to provide families with the resources they need to make limb saving treatment a reality, takes a village. We've got many successes under our belt, but we need more help, and that's where you come in.
While you can volunteer with us directly, even traveling to provide our families with companionship, transportation and meals, there's much more you can do to make a difference. Contact us to learn more about opportunities and ideas for donating, fundraising, hosting events, campaigning, and involving your school or company.

Most of us are fortunate enough to give a hug with our own two hands or feel the sand beneath our own two feet, but for others born with severe limb anomalies, performing life’s most basic actions is just simply not possible. For these children, limb saving and correction treatment is critical for a better quality of life. For many families though, access to these specialized surgical and rehabilitation treatments are not financially feasible.
Limb lengthening and limb deformity correction is a very complicated process. Meticulous surgical technique, vigilant follow up, and aggressive rehabilitation are required for a successful outcome. The results of lengthening are highly dependent on the experience of the surgeon and his surrounding clinical staff. Dr. Paley has been performing lengthening and limb deformity correction surgeries for over twenty-five years. He is currently the most experienced limb lengthening surgeon in the world, having performed over 17,000 lengthening surgeries.
Dr. Paley has developed over 100 new operative procedures for bone and soft-tissue reconstruction of congenital, developmental, and post-traumatic limb disorders. You can learn more about Dr. Paley and his team by going to www.paleyinstitute.org.
Can't spend a dime?
Then, spend some time... helping us help those in need.
Access to limb correction is many times cost prohibitive. With the support of our donors, we provide financial aid through our Tommy Fund to families whose children receive limb saving and correction surgery at The World Renowned Paley Institute of West Palm Beach Florida. Children from all over the world relocate with their families to South Florida to receive limb saving and correction surgery. These treatments can require up to, and sometimes more than six months of correction and rehabilitation. Each of these medical treatments or surgeries are in the multiple thousands and most times are simply unaffordable when the costs to relocate and lost wages are factored in. The Tommy Fund was created to offer financial assistance for the non-medical costs of these operations such as housing, transportation and meals.
Our first goal is to provide resources to save children's limbs through today's advanced medical technologies . Many times families are offered amputation as the sole solution to complex limb anomalies. Through our awareness campaign and strategic partnership with the world renowned Pediatric Orthopedic Limb Correction Surgeon, Dr. Dror Paley we can offer correction as the solution versus amputation. The unLIMBited Foundation is unique in that it is one of, if not the only charitable endeavor advocating and providing financial assistance for
limb saving treatments versus medically unnecessary amputations.
