WHAT IS LYMPHEDEMA?

Lymphedema is a chronic condition of swollen limbs. One can be born with it and many cancer survivors develop it as a result of treatment that damaged their lymphatic system through surgery or radiation. Proper diagnosis and treatment are still very difficult to find and not accessible to all.

CREATE LYMPHEDEMA AWARENESS

There are more people suffering from lymphedema than multiple dystrophy, MS, ALS, AIDS and Parkinson's COMBINED!  And yet, many patients still continue to be misdiagnosed for quite some time—time that they could have had to get started on treatment. One can be born with the condition and anyone who has had any cancer treatment, surgery or trauma to the lymph system is at risk.

WHY YOUR SUPPORT MATTERS

The Lymphedema Association of Ontario depends on this annual event to continue to help people living with lymphedema and healthcare professionals by offering information about lymphedema treatment, products, resources, CDT and/or MLD certified therapists, Assistive Device Program (ADP) registrants, hospital based clinics and support groups through our
