Last April 22 in Livingston, NJ. Katia Page organized an Aqua Run 1K event at the New York Sports Club, and I was honored to be a runner! It was a lot of fun, great ladies and awareness!
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?

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...
