Academy Award Winner Kathy Bates Kicks Off "Face of Lymphedema" Campaign

Kathy Bates kicked off LE&RN's "Face of Lymphedema" campaign at this year's Walk for Lymphedema and Lymphatic Disease in Brooklyn, NY. Having developed lymphedema after a double mastectomy, Ms. Bates sent a recorded testimony from the set of her television show American Horror Story to lend her support to LE&RN Walkers. Following Ms. Bates' example, Walkers then made their own video testimonies. Please listen to Ms. Bates' story and share widelyhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xEY5r5RbSJA We are proud to join forces with her in the fight against lymphedema and lymphatic disease.
