HEW's youngest volunteer.
An estimated 10 million Americans live with Lymphdema – more than the combined total of Americans living with ALS, AIDs, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, MS, and Muscular Dystrophy. Yet, the disease remains little known amongst the general population, and often misunderstood within the medical community.
Categories of Lymphedema
The turquoise butterfly is the international symbol for Lymphedema.
Treatment of Lymphedema should be provided by a Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT), who has undergone specialized training in Lymphedema care.
Currently, many policies, including Medicare, do not cover the medically- necessary compression supplies used daily in lymphedema treatment. As a result, many patients who cannot afford compression supplies suffer from recurrent infections, progressive degradation in their condition and eventual disability.
Proud to be Located in Appleton, Wisconsin
