“The Aimee Copeland Foundation has been a life saver for me! At a time when I was at my lowest, Aimee was a bright light that helped to pull me through. I had recently lost my left leg below the knee making me a double amputee. I had lost my right foot only a few months earlier due to Necrotizing Fasciitis. I followed Aimee’s story from the beginning and she was such an inspiration to me. Getting involved with the Foundation and volunteering so that I could give back to others and get out of my own head, start becoming active again, and stop being depressed about my situation was vital to my own recovery. The people associated with ACF are some of the most compassionate people I have ever met, and the programs have been a great outlet for my creativity and energy.” – Melanie Dunn
