My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Lymphatic Education & Research Network, New York, NY, USA
LE&RN has commenced a very important mission. Lymphedema, both genetic and acquired, is severe and debilitating disease surrounded by an unusual social and medical stigma. There are only very few existing treatment options and virtually none in development. The only option is to increase the social, political, governmental, institutional and financial awareness, transparency and support for the necessary new treatments. LE&RN has managed in the past three years to increase the awareness for the disease and suffering patients with minimal resources. However, there is still long way to go to reach the same amount of broad public awareness, support and research as has been generated to support for instance the victims of Multiple Sclerosis. Lymphedema patients are in high need of new medical solutions and we all have to support LE&RN as much as we can!
