Lymphedema associations around the world are working towards having March 6th proclaimed as WORLD LYMPHEDEMA DAY annually.
In order to bring awareness to as many cities and towns in BC as possible, we are reaching out to each member to revise this generic request and proclamation and ensure your hometown makes the proclamation.
In addition, you may wish to use the attached press release to give to your local paper where you can insert some personal information about your own journey with lymphedema as they always prefer a local interest point of view.
We are asking people to register to do this so that we know how many proclamation attempts were made and by who. Thank you for your support!
PROCLAMATION REQUEST LETTER
This is what you would send, along with the sample proclamation to your local government.
Proclamation Request Memo.doc
By providing a sample proclamation, this makes it easy for your local government to grant the proclamation. You will need to insert the name of your city into this document and your Mayor's name.
