Meredith,call ACA (Amputee Coalition of America) at 888-AMP-KNOW for support
groups in Ohio!
Also check listing of Amputees in Motion of Ohio in Canton.Most likely they
will have someone in Akron that will provide peer visitation to your
Anneliese.I will also sugget you subscribing to the AMPUTEE LISTSERVE whom I
have cc this message for support. Most likely someone near Akron will
corrospond with you.
