Welcome to LymphCare
After many months of planning and countless hours of hard work, we’re thrilled to be able to share LymphCare with you!
This whole project started from these three questions:
- What is it that lymphedema patients, family members and healthcare professionals need to make life with lymphedema more manageable?
- How can we help support those needs?
- What can we do to further support raising awareness about lymphedema?
Our main goal is to build an online lymphedema community where information can be shared to inspire and support both patients and healthcare professionals.
Before you login to LymphCare, you will find lots of information about lymphedema, therapy solutions and inspiration for living your life to the fullest. You can listen to stories from other patients and learn more in the Ask Elvy section. Ask Elvy has a list of frequently asked questions and if you can’t find the answer that you need, simply email Support@LymphCareUSA.com.
The blog area of LymphCare is another way for us to share information that you will hopefully find supportive and interesting. Here you can find tips for everyday life with lymphedema and suggestions on a range of topics from fashion to exercise and food to travel tips as well as treatment information.
We and your fellow lymphies would love to hear from you in the forum. Your story may be similar to someone else’s or inspire them. Examples of items to share in the forum include:
- Your personal perspective about living with lymphedema
- Tips, tricks and suggestions you’ve picked up as you have managed your condition
- Recent research or clinical evidence you have found exciting and encouraging
- Events for lymphedema and lipedema patients and caregivers in your community
If you’d like to write a guest blog post* for us, please email your idea or article to Support@LymphCareUSA.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. Please include photographs that relate to your topic and a photograph of yourself with a short background.
Once you log into LymphCare, you’ll be able to communicate with other patients, healthcare professionals and the LymphCare support team. You can ‘add friends’ and communicate via private email or communicate with the LymphCare community through the open forum. If you have a suggestion for a new topic in the forum, email Support@LymphCareUSA.com. You can update your profile with your personal preferences and information at any time. Make sure you are signed up to the LymphCare e-newsletter so we can share with you new tools and the latest information!
Thank you for joining the LymphCare community.
Your LymphCare Support Team
