"Our stories are giving others hope." LE&RN Spokesperson Kathy Bates
Dear LE&RN Supporting Members and other allies in the fight against LE and LD,
The video above demonstrates the power of people who will not be stopped, who are determined to tell their stories, and who are inspiring others with the growing hope that at long last the world for people living with lymphedema (LE), lymphatic diseases (LD), and lipedema (LI) is changing.
This didn't happen by accident. It happened because of the steadfast commitment of those of you who have become LE&RN Supporting Members and have joined us in our advocacy movement. Now is the time to move ahead with more determination than ever.
That's why I am writing to you today. If you are reading this, then you are committed to accelerating the pursuit of our goals. You can’t do that from the sidelines. Your mid-year contribution will fund LE&RN's mission of fighting LE and LD through education, research, and advocacy — improving the lives of people living with these diseases and working towards the cures we know are possible.
Here are a few of the initiatives that LE&RN supporters have made a reality over the past year:
Allow us to continue this important work and to ensure that this movement, so hard won, is not extinguished but remains a source of hope and change in the world.
