Rachalle Maycall China Ang:
Good Afternoon!

I am Rachalle Maycall China Ang representing a group of third year nursing students from the Philippines. For this semester, we will be having our thesis for our research, we would like to ask for your permission for us to adopt the tool from your research study which is entitled “Amputee Body-Image Scale".The psychometrician of our university suggested that we
should modify the tool into even numbers to minimize bias. We are also going to translate the tool into our own native language.

We hope to receive your most favorable response.

Thank you for your kind consideration and God Bless.


Respectfully Yours,
Rachalle Maycall China A. Ang
