We had the absolute honor to be part of Juzo's panel of advocates and shared what it is like to live with Lipedema and Lymphedema. It was amazing to meet Annerose & Petra of Juzo.
We will be taking on our 4th Annual challenge locally, but you too can take part virtually, wherever you live. It is a sprint distance, click the sign up button below for details & to sign up!
In September of 2014, my family and I made our way to our first LIpedema conference. It was held in beautiful Washington DC, and the full experience is found here...
June 29, 2019 - EVERYWHERE!!!
In 2007 I was diagnosed with Lipedema (actually primary Lipedema, and because I had gone so long not being diagnosed properly, I also had secondary Lymphedema). I was 35 at the time, had just given birth to our daughter, and had no idea what Lipedema or Lymphedema were. Basically Lipedema is defined as a rare and painful fat disorder, although with 17% of the population believed to be suffering with this, how rare can it be?
