Did you know that March is Lymphedema Awareness Month? Lymphedema is a condition that affects approximately 1 million Americans and almost 100 million men and women worldwide (Source). People affected by lymphedema have lymph fluid collecting in certain parts of their body, frequently their arms and legs, which causes severe swelling, discomfort, loss of mobility and more. Lymphedema can be an inherited condition, but also appears when the lymphatic system is damaged by injury, surgery, and radiation treatment. Compression garments are important tools in the treatment of lymphedema.
One of our amazing brands of compression products – Juzo – is doing a great deal this month to bring positive attention to this condition. During Lymphedema Awareness Month, Juzo is running the Keep Moving Movement. The movement is designed to create an inspiring community filled with uplifting stories and journeys from Lymphedema patients as well as those with circulation, swelling and other venous conditions. Juzo is asking men and women who are affected by lymphedema to share their stories on Facebook for a chance to win five thousand dollars! At the end of the month, three winners will be selected to win the cash prize.
Here’s how you can get involved and enter to win the grand prize of $5,000.00:
