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 Ontario, it is estimated that over 63,000 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.
