Young amputees learn to handle teasing & bullying at War Amps Moncton Seminar



    MONCTON, NB, Aug. 23 /CNW Telbec/ - Growing up as an amputee has its
share of challenges, from dealing with teasing, bullying and staring, to
simple frustration at sometimes not being able to take part in an activity or
keep up with your peers.
    Child amputees from across the Atlantic provinces will have the
opportunity to talk about these challenges and get practical solutions from
older Champs in an open-forum session today at The War Amps 2009 Atlantic
Child Amputee (CHAMP) Seminar.
    The session will take place at 10:30 a.m. in Ballroom A of the Delta
Beausejour Hotel in Moncton, 750 Main Street.
    Earlier sessions in the morning include the importance of healthy living
for amputees, looking at some of the helpful daily living aids available for
amputees and learning how to become a Safety Ambassador with The War Amps
PLAYSAFE Program.
    Media are welcome to attend these sessions, or interviews can be arranged
at any time.
    The three-day Seminar winds up today at 11:30 a.m.
