Tiffany Howe was born with Primary Congenital Lymphedema (Milroy’s Disease). After 27 years of struggling with this ailment, she was given a choice of losing her left leg or undergoing the Charles Debulking procedure. The choice was difficult and very challenging to make. She chose the Charles Debulking procedure and could not have guessed the life-changing experiences which would result. Full recovery took a year and included her learning to walk again.  For the next five years, Tiffany used her training as a Registered Nurse to research and study any available information about Lymphedema. Research ultimately led me to the conclusion that Lymphedema patients are in need of support for this currently incurable disease. Support includes education and advocacy. I represent Virginia as part of the Lymphedema Advocacy Group, which is a patient-centered group, raising awareness. Our mission is to get passage in Congress for the Lymphedema Treatment Act.
