Message from our President:

We are really interested in broadening the involvement of skilled, engaged individuals to join us as we work together to improve the lives of those living with lymphedema.  

If you are willing to be considered as a member of one of the three groups, we would love to hear from you with a quick line or two as to why you are interested. And further, we are hoping to identify a few “experts” in the fields of fundraising, public relations, and communications to participate as well from outside the LAM membership if needed.

Please consider joining us by contacting through email 

We join as they make it easy to donate and support the LAM. Once on their site, search for us with key word 'lymphedema' and then scroll to the bottom of the page to find our organization.  

Hilary Druxman Design (Winnipeg) acknowledges the importance of giving back to the community and she has 
designed a unique pendant we call JourneyOrder the necklace and 100% of the net proceeds sold supports the LAM in our mission to raise lymphedema awareness. 

"Symbolic of the challenges on every journey
as we move forward,
one step at a time, discovering hope, strength and joy."

It is a journey of ups and downs; it is hard and good all at the same time
