The J.E. Hanger Story
Our organization’s founding father, James Edward Hanger, experienced his own personal transformation following limb loss. After his life-changing experience, it became his life’s mission to transform the lives of others who shared a similar experience, and that is something that Hanger employees continue to embrace and carry out every day.
