Syd­ney boy’s zest for life is an in­spi­ra­tion to oth­ers

Cape Breton Post - - EDITORIAL -

I would like to thank you for Nancy King’s ex­cel­lent ar­ti­cle fea­tur­ing Zack­ery McDon­ald ( July 23), a mem­ber of The War Amps Child Am­putee (CHAMP) Pro­gram, who at­tended our re­cent At­lantic CHAMP Seminar.

Zack­ery’s zest for life and hu­mour is an in­spi­ra­tion to all. Through CHAMP, young am­putees are en­cour­aged to de­velop a pos­i­tive at­ti­tude to­wards their am­pu­ta­tion, and live to their full po­ten­tial.

Cov­er­age like yours cer­tainly helps to in­form the public of the re­sources and pro­grams avail­able to child am­putees.

The War Amps re­ceives no gov­ern­ment grants and its pro­grams are pos­si­ble through public sup­port of our Key Tag and Ad­dress La­bel Ser­vice.

Your cov­er­age will go a long way in help­ing to spread the word.

Danita Chisholm, Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor, CHAMP Pro­gram
