free to a good home
It's not the kind of thing I'd want to advertise on Craigslist or Kijiji.
I can't set it out on my front lawn and hope someone takes it away.
I doubt the Canadian Diabetes Association or the Ontario Federation for Cerebral Palsy would want it as part of their drive to collect use goods for re-sale.
But I have a perfectly good prosthesis, worn only a handful of times that I'm sure someone could use, even if it was wrong for me (and I have replaced it with another one I don't seem to be wearing much).
The government covers about two thirds of the cost of a new prosthesis. That balance must be prohibitive for many who don't have private insurance to take care of the rest.
How do I find someone who can use it though?
Maybe someone at Breast Cancer Action would know.
Of course, I could always use my prosthesis to make art, the way Jacqueline did.
I think my inclinations might be a little more violent, though.
