The National Lymphedema Network recently sent out their latest publication announcing that March 6th is the date recognized as the National Lymphedema Awareness Day. Lymphedema can, and does affect people of all ages. Many are born with it and/or have genetic dispositions towards it occurring; some have their limbs swelling as a result of chemotherapy or surgery; some may have a trauma that occurs that triggers it (like a car accident). Generally, we know that you have lymphedema in either the arms or legs (usually not both types of limbs), but it may affect other areas of the body as well. Jenny will be here to tell her story, as well as explain more about her efforts to make others aware of Lymphedema issues. Hopefully, we will have other speakers online too to help explain various treatments that are available today. .................................................................................................... Today, while Jenny maintains her own issues with her own embattlement with Lymphedema, she has become an advocate to help others understand what Lymphedema is. .................................................................................................... Host Kathryn Krastin is here to provide a resource for survivors to tell their stories in their own words – not some contrived form that fits typical media agenda and/or demographics.
