OPAF has helped initiate our First Tennis program in Southern California through its financial help, providing us with Tennis rackets, tennis balls, and prizes through Prince Racket Co. Robin Burton has been very supportive of us on a continuing basis and provides the best reasons for OPAF to continue in its good work helping the amputee community. As a result, we have single, double and triple limb-loss amputees up and exercising, through tennis, and our able instructor, Stan Backovsky. Hats off to OPAF for continuing all its sports and social activities.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
receiving the kind of support that any local amputee support group needs.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
probably encourage it to coordinate even more with the Amputee Coalition of America, to bring together amputees through the U.S. in exercise, sports and social activities.
Volunteer & I co-sponsored the tennis program as President of the Mutual Amputee Aid Foundation. My goal is to get amputees up on their feet exercising. .
