For over 40 years my father wore JOBST® stockings to help manage his lymphedema until his passing in 2016. As lymphedema spread up his leg, the garments also changed. When I was a child, I used to help my mother hand wash his stockings. Lymphedema does not happen only to women or adults, and different garments might be needed for changing situations over a lifetime.
The best way to be prepared for lymphedema is through patient knowledge. My father lived 24 years without a diagnosis, so I know firsthand how critically important it is to be informed both as a patient and a family member. Living life through those years is the basis of this new relationship in 2019. Knowledge is power, and I am thrilled to announce the launching of the #EMPOWERMENT Series sponsored by JOBST® USA exclusively for the Official Lymphie Strong Inspiration Group for Lymphedema. This is yet another grassroots patient initiative created to assist our community to become empowered as self advocates.
Vern’s passion for education, specifically about the effect that lymphedema has on the patient as well as their family, is what intrigued me about Vern. Our team is also passionate about lymphedema awareness and helping those affected live unencumbered lives so a partnership with Vern was a perfect fit.
