Real Men Wear Pink 2019- Glenn Crumpton

Glenn Crumpton
AALOS Prosthetics and Orthotics

Glenn Crumpton is a lifelong resident of Montgomery. After graduating from Robert E. Lee High School in Montgomery, he went to work in the business that his grandfather began in 1954, known as Orthopedic Service Company. He attended Auburn University Montgomery and ultimately received his associate degree in business management from Troy University. He continued his education at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois, where he completed certificate programs in prosthetics and orthotics before returning to Montgomery.

In 1991, Crumpton joined his mother at Alabama Artificial Limb Company and, in 2004, he and his mother combined Alabama Artificial Limb Company and Orthopedic Service Company, which was being operated by his uncle, Glenn Latimer, to form AALOS Prosthetics and Orthotics, where he is now managing director.

AALOS also has a unique entity that was undertaken many years ago by his grandfather, known as “The Boutique,” which provides post mastectomy products, including breast forms, swimwear and lingerie to women who undergo a mastectomy.

“It is through “The Boutique” that I have been able to continue a legacy that began decades ago to find a way to support anyone who undergoes a mastectomy or amputation and their family and loved ones as they deal with some of the most traumatic news one can receive after a cancer diagnosis,” Crumpton said. “To be a part of the Real Men Wear Pink campaign is a way to help continue to move to the time when we will not have to hear the terrible news that this disease brings with it by supporting efforts to find a cure. Cancer does not discriminate on the basis of age, race or ethnicity and at AALOS I have the honor and privilege of helping people who undergo amputations or mastectomies and support them as they live the rest of their lives cancer-free.”

Crumpton and his wife, Jennifer, and their daughters can be seen at public events throughout the River Region to raise awareness and support for community events to eradicate this disease.
