A support group is forming in Branson to help people who need help in dealing with amputations.
Heather Tuck of JP&O Prosthetic and Orthotic Lab in Branson is behind the new group, and she says during a recent visit on KRZK’s “Ozarks Now” program says amputations often happen to people suddenly which can cause major stress.
The first meeting of the support group takes place next Thursday (March 11) at the Golden Corral in Branson at 6:00 pm and is open to not only amputee patients but their family members and caregivers. For more information, people can call 417-213-3128.
JP&O coordinates other support groups in the region including one in Harrison that meets the first Saturday of each month at Western Sizzlin’ at 4:00 pm.
