Mission family attends CHAMP seminar

The War Amps 2015 BC Child Amputee (CHAMP) Seminar in Vancouver brought together young amputees from across the province.

Three-year-old Jaxson Linn, of Mission, has just returned from The War Amps 2015 BC Child Amputee (CHAMP) Seminar in Vancouver, which brought together young amputees from across the province.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of CHAMP which has provided generations of child amputees, with financial assistance for artificial limbs, regional seminars and peer support.

Jaxson, a right hand amputee, attended the three-day seminar with his parents, Trish and Jason, where they learned about the latest developments in artificial limbs, dealing with teasing and bullying and parenting an amputee child.
