Review for Lymphatic Education & Research Network, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have had secondary lymphedema in my right leg for over seven years. The Lymphatic Education & Research Network (LERN) is my go to source for scientific data, community support, updates on the latest in compression and devices, our annual fundraising walk and more. Without LERN , those of us with Lymphedema would be lost. It is a warm and incredible resource and community.

Review for Lymphatic Education & Research Network, New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I developed lymphedema years ago as a result of cancer surgery, lymph node removal and radiation. At first, no one knew what it was and then finally, I was one of the lucky people who had it properly diagnosed. At first I was scared and alone and knew no one else that had lymphedema. And then I was introduced to LE&RN and everything changed. Through this wonderful organization, I met other people who had similar questions and concerns as me. And as I started going to events and lectures, I learned more and more about how to help myself and others. And now every year I attend the annual LE&RN Walk and help to raise money for further research and awareness.
