LAW 2018

Lymphoedema Awareness Week 4-10 March 2018

This is a great time to be raising awareness to health care professionals about Lymphoedema and the often simple things they can do to make a huge difference to reducing the prevalence, severity, and impact of Lymphoedema by early recognition and intervention.

Sock It Campaign 

#Sockit

 

 

After the sucess last year we are once again organising a Thunderclap to ensure as many people as possible hear and learn about lymphoedema. A Thunderclap enables a single message to be sent to multiple social media accounts at the same time including FaceBook, Twitter or Tumblr as long as you have signed up in advance. It is for one occasion only but it goes much further.

The message will be sent out @ 12 Noon Saturday 10th March
