I have accepted an invitation to very briefly speak at the Texas Walk to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases this year on October 15, 2016 in Plano, TX near Dallas. The Lymphatic Education & Research Network is a 501C3, non-profit organization whose mission is to fight lymphatic disease and lymphedema through education, research, and advocacy. This an opportunity to meet many of my fellow Lymphies in person from across the state and other regions. It is very exciting!
In September 2015, I created the Lymphie Strong group in honor of my father, not knowing he would pass away less than a year later. He suffered with it for 43 years, and I have had it for 22 years. This walk is very personal for me.
Our Lymphie Strong team is “Dedicated to giving hope, inspiration, and support to those suffering from Lymphedema.” If you would like to join my team either in person, or virtually through your donation, please let me know. The name of the walk team is the Lymphie Strong TX Walk group, and we would love to have you join us. You do not have to be from Texas to be part of the team. Any amount is appreciated, even $1. 😃
