MONTREAL, May 23 /CNW Telbec/ - What do you do when someone makes fun of your artificial limb or calls you "peg leg" at school?

Child amputees from across Quebec attending The War Amps (CHAMP) Seminar will get the answers today and learn to deal with other issues of growing up as an amputee during the Growing up with CHAMP Session. Younger Champs will have the chance to talk about things like teasing and staring, in a forum-like discussion. Older Champs will offer advice and suggestions on how they dealt with the same situations while growing up.
