Lymphedema Awareness Walk
In The Community
I had the honor to present information about Lymphedema to the Dragon Boat Team in Prince George this evening. Many thanks to Fran Ashfield (holding the World Lymphedema sign) for inviting me. ~ Lila R, BCLA Vice President
Thousand Dollar Donation from BCLA Support Group!
March 2, 2020 - The Prince George Lymphedema Support group in conjunction with the "Live Well Prince George Society" made a $1000.00 donation to the Spirit of the North Healthcare Foundation for the Lymphedema Garment Fund (proceeds from the 50/50 Draw that was held on February 14, 2020). Support group members and a couple of their friends sold over 1000 tickets in just under a month's time!
