Whatever your level of fitness, there is an activity that we know you love doing and that activity. You can help us raise much needed funds for our association.


Why do we need funds?


1. The LAO is launching a 3 month pilot of the Compassion Fund. The fund will provide some treatment and teach self management of the condition to patients that need financial assistance. 


2. Info-line support. We recorded an increase in the number of calls to our support line. We need to track and analyze the data, for creating a business case to present to the Ministry of Health to advocate on behalf of patients. 


3. Continuing to provide Webinars to educate and raise awareness to the LE community.


4. Virtual Support Group for Patients . We welcome all therapists and any one that provides support to the Lymphedema community to let us know if they are able to help found this group



Help us to meet our goal to provide all of these services to the often overlooked Lymphedema Community. We want to raise $15,000 for these

programs and initiatives by the end of 2020
