Lymphedema/Lipedema Support Group

November 29, 2019

LAM is pleased to provide information on behalf of the Lymphedema Support Group that operates in Winnipeg.

Mark your calendars.

The next meeting is Tuesday, January 21st, 2020 at 6:30 pm.

This is an update of our meeting on November 19th.

On November 19th, the Lymphedema/Lipedema Support Group met and we were pleased to see some members come for their first meeting at our new location.

Amongst our members are Kiran and Deepak Sran who attended this meeting as usual. Since 2014, Kiran has been in extreme chronic pain for 24 hours a day and destined to become wheelchair bound. Because of her Vascular Specialist, this young woman now has hope. She's going to Germany in January where she will have 3 surgeries. This has been performed there successfully for many years. She will be there for 3 months and will keep in touch with us.

The guest speaker for the meeting was Miriam Duff, a counseling therapist. Her topic was Self-Compassion for Self Care and Stress Management. We all have stress in our lives and it is the way in which we approach it that matters. Hearing Miriam's words and doing some basic exercises taught us a great deal that will be helpful going forward.

We meet at Bardal Funeral Home, 843 Sherbrook St. The many amenities available to the group are wonderful. They even treat us to dainties with tea or coffee. It's central with free parking in the lot at the back of the building. The door at the back is open

There is no meeting in December. Please join us on January 21st, 2020

(This support group has been active for nearly 8 years now and new attendees are always welcomed. This group operates in Winnipeg but is open to anyone able to come into the city to attend)
