Self-described "Chief Stump" Dan Sorkin, 80, says that losing a limb is simply an "inconvenience" that shouldn't get in the way of someone living his or her life. As founder of Stumps R Us, the San Francisco Bay Area-based amputee support group, Sorkin answers 40 to 60 letters weekly from amputees and their families.
The group has members in 22 states and fifteen countries, and the organization's newsletter, "Gimpy," features helpful information and humor for amputees. The group's activities include bowling and boating parties, and Sorkin, a certified pilot, treats each new member to a one-hour flight lesson.
