This book has been compiled so that people who have been touched by lymphedema can share their stories, their trials and tribulations, their sadness and disappointments, their strength and hopes. It is intended to encourage, educate and inspire patients and loved ones, who can often feel isolated and uninformed. We hope to increase awareness and general knowledge of a condition that is often overlooked and misdiagnosed, yet which can have monumental physical and emotional impact on the lives that it affects. Not every story has a happy ending, yet there is hope. By sharing these stories with one another, we can learn from the struggles and successes that others have experienced, and can help each other to live well with lymphedema. The sale of this book books will help the Lighthouse Lymphedema Network (LLN) to assist our needy patients through our Bandages and Garment Fund and support the sponsorship of our annual all day medical conference. This is the only lymphedema medical conference in the country where patients are encouraged to attend.
