Challenge of walking 1 km, 5km, 10km or more over a 30 day period
Raise funds by doing yoga every day or swimming 2 or 3 times a week for 30 days
and want to do 10 mins of knitting a day
Whatever your level of fitness,
there is an activity that we know you love doing
And that activity can help us raise much
needed funds for our association.
1. The LAO is launching a 3 month pilot of the Compassion Fund. The intention of this Fund is to provide some treatment and teach self management of the condition to patients that need financial assistance.
2.Info-line support. We recorded an increase in the number of calls to our support line and we need to track and analyze the data, for creating a business case to present to the Ministry of Health to advocate on behalf of patients
3. Continuing to provide Webinars to educate and raise awareness to the LE community
4. Virtual Support Group for Patients . We welcome all therapists and any one that provides support to the Lymphedema community to let us know if they are able to help found this group
Help us to meet our goal to provide all of these services to the often overlooked Lymphedema Community
We want to Raise $15,000 for these
programs and initiatives by the end of 2020
Join us for CHALLENGE: LYMPHEDEMA month and take part in webinars, guided meditations, posts about managing fitness at home and much more!
