Let Me Introduce Myself
My name is Monica Prestridge. At four years old I lost my left leg below the knee in a lawnmower accident. I lived my life unconnected, HIDDEN, and without resources up into my thirties.
A few years ago I connected with another amputee. It sparked life inside of me. I felt connected.
I felt seen and valued. I came alive.
Since that time, I have given my life to find more connection. I began to attend amputee events
where I met a whole world of others like me. I began to experience power in community.
I began to stop looking at my disability as a setback or hindrance and began to see it as an
opportunity to serve and give back to others.
With the help of others, I founded Life Unlimbited, a nonprofit dedicated to bringing community, awareness and resources to the amputee community.
I can't wait to meet and experience you!
