Are You Ready For...

Lymphoedema Awareness Week 5-11 March 2017?

This is a great time to be raising awareness of health care professionals about Lymphoedema and the often simple things they can do to make a huge difference to reducing the prevalence, severity, and impact of Lymphoedema by early recognition and intervention.

For the first time this year we are organizing a Thunderclap to ensure as many people as possible hear and learn about lymphoedema. A Thunderclap enables a single message to be sent to multiple social media accounts at the same time it can be FaceBook, Twitter or Tumblr as long as they have signed up in advance. It is for one occasion only but it goes much further. BLS will put out a message Sunday 5th March at 12md. Please add your support

  • Please remember to contact your Regional Rep to let them know what is happening in your area and share ideas.
  • Support the LSN “Sock it to Lymphoedema” campaign by wearing odd and outlandish socks to encourage people to ask about it.

Let’s work together to raise awareness of Lymphoedema and improve the lives of our patients!
