NY Chapter Member Tina Himaya hosts “What About Us? Living With Lymphedema” online, 8/21, 7:00pm

Join New York Chapter Member Tina Himaya for a reprise of her popular show What About Us? Living With Lymphedema. This will be broadcast on Zoom (and simultaneously on LE&RN's Facebook page) on Friday, August 21, at 7:00pm.

What About Us? Living with Lymphedema brings you Tina's story, from diagnosis to one hundred nights of hospital stays to today, where she is an advocate for more research, funding, and visibility. Through song and storytelling, Tina finds her voice as a person who has lived with primary lymphedema for thirty-four years.

"Making lymphedema (LE) and lymphatic diseases (LD) a national priority requires engaging the public in a way that helps them understand the impact of these diseases. The arts remain a powerful way to share such a story, and Tina Himaya does just this with her breakthrough musical, What About Us? Living with Lymphedema," says William Repicci, President and CEO of LE&RN.

Tina last performed this show live as a fundraiser for LE&RN on World Lymphedema Day (March 6) in 2020.

Sign up here to join Tina and her friends for this very special evening.
