When Venari Partners asked Impedimed SVP David Adams which charity they could support through their annual Secret Santa tradition, David immediately named LE&RN.

Impedimed is one of LE&RN's oldest and most loyal corporate sponsors, consistently supporting LE&RN through direct donations and through regular attendance at LE&RN events. SVP Dennis Schlaht has attended LE&RN Runs and Walks to Fight Lymphedema & Lymphatic Diseases around the country. Dennis not only attends the events, but has provided incredible moral support to participants. Colorado Chapter co-Chair Marie Apodaca wrote about what that support meant to her in 2018, when Dennis was presented with LE&RN's 2018 Advocate Award.

"At Impedimed, we are aligned with LE&RN's mission of fighting LE and LD through education, research, and advocacy," Dennis said in an interview. "It is our goal to deliver the highest level of care and service to our customers, and that means fighting this fight with them -- improving insurance coverage, getting funding for research, and raising awareness."

Impedimed was so taken with Venari Partners donation to LE&RN that Impedimed matched it with a donation of its own.

LE&RN thanks these corporate citizens and is grateful for the support they provide to LE&RN's mission as we head into 2019.
