BENEFITING: Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LE&RN)
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2017
I support LE&RN because when I developed unexplained swelling in my left leg in 2008, I could find no answers. I had to do my own research and advocacy in order to be properly treated, and LE&RN was my guide. Lymphedema affects millions of people, but it is still treated as a rare disease. This is so wrong to me. It's time that lymphedema and other lymphatic diseases receive attention so those suffering can be treated and cured.
