Female Lymphedema Prevention Program

Beijing, China

Due to the lack of attention paid to lymphedema in China, I initiated the Female Lymphedema Prevention Program in July last year to compile China’s first lymphedema protection manual to help increase prevention for Gynecological tumors patients. By cooperating with the Chinese Red Cross Foundation (CRCF), I staged a large-scale money collecting and received tremendous supports of people from all walks of life. Until now, the program has printed 10,000 copies of protection manuals, planning to distribute them to 10,000 patients in more than 50 hospitals across the country.
On March 4th, there will be a ceremony at Beijing Friendship Hospital for launching the protection manuals’ publishing. Specialists will carry the handbooks to remind patients of gynecological tumors to pay attention to lymphedema prevention. We are hoping to increase awareness of lymphedema in the whole society.
