    Lymphedema Voice & Activist: Leigh Elke

    in Health

    Leigh comes forth today talking about what brought her into the passion for the activism for lymphedema rights, what she has done with that time frame, and what her hopes are for the future.


    Leigh was diagnosed at 21 years old with lymphedema/lipedema, PCOS, fibromaylgia, Chronic fatigue syndrome high blood pressure, hypothyroidsm all on the same day. She had gained 230 pounds in one year. After reaching 500 pounds she had gastric bypass surgery, successfully losing 340 pounds in one year. After consulting with Dr Herbst in June 2014 for a "formal" diagnosis of stage 3 lipoedema she has undergone 3 surgeries for lipedema, all reimbursed by BCBS PPO. Additionally she has authorization for 6 total surgeries and 1 tummy apron removal. She is a disabled stay at home mother of 3, hoping to help others in the same situation with a non profit organization and insurance questions/answers.

    Lympedema Voices #Project1000000Voices Lymphedema Treatment Act 2014 Reflection

    in US Government

    In September 2014, a group of lymphedema advocates converged upon the Capitol Hill to talk to the US House of Represenatives and Senators about the Lymphedema Treatment Act, as well as had a Congressional Hearing to empasize the importance that it means to many lymphedema patients, caregivers, physicians, and more.  As a result, we ended up with 4 bipartisan lead sponsors from the House of Represenatives, and 91 cosponsors from many of the States.  We really need about 200 cosponsors to help ensure that this Bill passes the House.  


    Guidance was provided by the Lymphedema Advocacy Group, National Lymphedema Network, and many other supporters of the Bill.


    Join us on our Lymphedema Journey and Advocacy for a discussion on a reflection of those this year's journey at Capitol Hill (DC) and a call of action that we would like for you to do as soon as possible.


    For many more details about the Lymphedema Treatment Act, please check out the website http://lymphedematreatmentact.org.


    Also check out the Lymphedema In The News fb page http://facebook.com/lymphedemainthenews for additonaly information about Lymphedema, as well as other events/call to actions happening, especially in Texas.

    Lymphedema Voices: Sheryl #Project1000000Voices Lymphedema Is No Joke

    in Health

    First time I talked to Sherly, she told me that she had once been a teacher but hasn't been able to work FT in decades.  She has had Lymphedema since in the early 90s.  She has difficulty fulfilling her life, difficulty in transportation.  She has no way of getting a compression garment (which can cost $500) without having to choose between a garment or paying rent because her income is just that stressed already.  Complicated by tumors (one removed and another that needs to removed).  She has written her Represenative but hasn't had a response just yet.  Hopefully, he'll get on board with the Lymphedema Treatment Act which will authorize Medicare to pay for the garment that helps to keep the lymphedema from getting worse, which causes so many other dominoing issues (like mobility, possible MS, and other diseases that stem from the damaged lymphatic systerm.  


    In Texas, we have 3 co-sponsors for the Lymphedema Treatment Act, and we have many more to go.  There are 4 bipartisan leads and 99 co-sponsors of the Lymphedemat Treatment Act across the United States.  We really need about 200 co-sponsors for this bill to be passed in the House.  We need your support to help the many Sheryl's out there with similar stories.  Please go to the http://lymphedematreatmentact.org website to sign up being a Team Member in your State and go to the "How You Can Help" and send your legislators personalize letters.


    Listen to the show that we had on November 20th as well for some other call to actions that you can do to help.
