    Please join us for our monthly virtual support group consisting of lymphedema patients and LAO volunteers. Our support groups are a great opportunity for you to share and discuss your personal lymphedema management skills, information, hopes, fears, successes and hardships, all in a safe space to facilitate support and growth.
