World Lymphoedema Day


Hi Everyone

Did you know that the second World Lymphoedema day is taking place on March 6th?

I believe I read that there are 150 million people suffering from the condition worldwide. The emphasis this year is on finding a cure, if indeed that is possible. Last year's theme was to spread the word around the world and increase awareness of the condition.

I'll see if I can send the details to Health Unlocked.

Good luck to you all! Jude4

Hi there — I just signed this petition to World Health Organization (WHO): Designate “Lymphedema: Awareness & Cures” as the 2018 World Health Day Campaign for WHO

Will you sign as well? Every signature helps, and if you sign *right now* it will really build momentum. Head here, then help me recruit more as well!

Thanks! Olivera
