My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Lymphatic Education & Research Network, New York, NY, USA
I have Lymphedema and live on the Delaware Shore. lEARN has offered me a sense of community and eased my isolation. I have learned about treatment, and procedures to aleaviate the symptoms. The doctors in my area know very little about this disease and I am so greatful to LEARN for empowering me. I would be hopeless without LEARN. Because of this organization I can control the disease, work full time and participate in my community. I recommend the website to everyone I meet who suffers with Lymphedema, and they are relieved to know they are not alone. It is so important to educate not only the patients but the DOCTORS! More has to be done to treat this disease. Surviving cancer was one thing, but being sentenced to a life with Lymphedema is the harshest reality of my life. It has to be cured, we just need more research.
