Ann Ehrlich, founder of Lymph Notes, dies at age 85

The staff and board of LE&RN were saddened to hear the news that Ann Ehrlich, founder of Lymph Notes, passed away on June 3, 2017. 

After Ann developed lymphedema in 1999, following breast cancer treatment, she wrote Living Well with LymphedemaVoices of Lymphedema, and The Lymphedema Caregivers Guide. She became a fierce advocate for lymphedema patients through her web site LymphNotes.com. In recent years, Ann funded LE&RN/Lymph Notes therapist scholarships, which will continue through the generosity of the Ehrlich family.

William Repicci, President & CEO of LE&RN, recently referred to Ann as “a giant in our field.”
