About our event

We are trying to promote awareness and raise funds for people who suffer from chronic swelling and chronic pain from lymphatic disorders.  Over 10 million people are undiagnosed with the disease.  It takes 20-30 years to get a diagnosis.  People are developing the disease from cancer treatments, traumatic accidents and surgery.  Many insurance plans will not pay for the total treatment of the disease.
