My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Lymphatic Education & Research Network, New York, NY, USA
This non-profit is assisting, teaching, advocating for a terribly misunderstood population of people with lymphatic diseases. They carry out webinars for people affected as well as for healthcare professionals who have been historically undereducated about the lymphatic system and diseases of this system. Additionally they support an "Ask the Expert" on their website with a number of highly regarded health professionals who promptly answer peoples' questions on a varied number of topics related to lymphatic diseases. They support and are present at fund raising events across the US and have built an international network dedicated to advocacy, teaching and research related to people and lymphatic diseases and supporting and teaching healthcare professionals and researchers alike. They have so incredibly and impressively reached US congress and senators in many states to advocate for care and supplies to be mandated to be covered by health insurance, because so very many people in the US have no assistance to manage their lifelong lymphatic disease. As a healthcare professional who has developed a lifelong lymphatic disease after treatment for cancer and who has accessed the LE&RN for my own personal assistance, I would greatly recommend this non-profit to be recognized as a "great non-profit". They provide absolutely outstanding support of a highly under-represented population of people who truly need this assistance that they cannot get elsewhere at this time, and have created a sustainable organization that provides research awards and continued teaching for healthcare providers as well. Bravo LE&RN!!
