Jr. Dixon Foundation provides prosthetic limbs to children and military veterans. Our foundation was started to help families and veterans have the opportunity to afford a prosthetic limb. If you or someone you know needs help in raising money for a limb, then the foundation is here to help you. One of staff will direct you to the Children's Hospital Los Angeles™ for an assessment. Based on the hospital's recommendation the foundation can provide funding for a new prophetic limb.
We have helped approximately 30 children and veterans receive a new prophetic limb, which costs approximately $40,000. Jr. Dixon Foundation can help with around 30% of that cost. The hospital will provide ongoing support and training on how to use the patient’s new limb. The staff can adjust a prophetic limb as a child grows, for better comfort or easier movement.
