About Us


This is a not for profit organization that focuses on promoting Lymphedema Awareness and offering support to people with Lymphedema. 



Lymphedema is a chronic health condition with many faces. Some people are born with it; others develop it later in life, often after treatment for some cancers.
In Canada, it is estimated that over 1,000,000 children and adults live with lymphedema and many more are at risk. Up to one in four breast cancer survivors will develop lymphedema at some point in their life.
