Limbs 4 Life is excited to announce the launch of the second season of Missing Bits, a podcast for amputees and people with limb loss; their families and caregivers.
In this season we will hear from a variety of amputees and people born with limb difference, learn about their life day to day, things that challenge them and triumphs that they have made in their journey back to independent living.
We look forward to sharing these very personal insights with you. So, sit back and relax, plug in your headphones or download the app on your device.
We know that you will enjoy series #2.
