Story of LLF

In 2007, Denise Geddes CMT, CLT and a primary lower extremity Lymphedema patient decided it was time to create a nonprofit organization that educates medical professionals, patients, and their caregivers about the latest available treatment options and to create a loud voice of awareness focused on this chronic debilitating disease. Thus the Lymphedema Lifeline Foundation was born, since that day the foundation has evolved to providing bi-annual Lymphedema Educational Awareness Day conferences, a useful website dedicated to providing resourceful connections to help patients navigate to better understanding of this underdiagnosed, underinsured and undermanaged chronic disease called Lymphedema.  In July of 2011 The Lymphedema Lifeline Foundation created a popular world wide Facebook patient support group.  Please join us by becoming a member of ever growing Facebook Support group.  https://www.facebook.com/groups/LymphedemaLifline.org/
