What We Do

From 2005 to early 2016, Lymphedema Resources, Inc. has funded physician-prescribed compression garments and lymphedema therapy treatments for over 711 clients totaling approximately $189,721, primarily through grants.  About 57% funded compression garments and 43% funded lymphedema therapy.

We have received grants from Susan G. Komen for the Cure Southwest Florida for the last eleven years to fund compression garments and lymphedema therapy for qualified breast cancer survivors in 5 southwest Florida counties. We receive many requests from those suffering from lymphedema as a result of various conditions and unable to afford compression garments, from all over the United States. To the extent we have funding available, we work to accommodate qualified clients who have nowhere else to turn for assistance.

We Need You

Financial support to continue to fund physician-prescribed compression garments nationally, and to eventually fund lymphedema therapy beyond southwest Florida from all causes, is urgently needed.
