Amputee's story inspires "CHAMPS" at War Amps Moncton Seminar today



    MONCTON, NB, Aug. 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Julia Lindsay, 26, remembers well the
challenges of growing up as an amputee. Today at 1 p.m. in Ballroom A of the
Delta Beausejour Hotel in Moncton (750 Main Street), she will tell child
amputees attending The War Amps 2009 Atlantic Child Amputee (CHAMP) Seminar
her inspiring story.

a Truro, NS, native, will describe with candour and humour life as an amputee
