#SOS4WLD - Governor General of Canada


Governor General of Canada (Canada’s Head of State & Commander-in-Chief of the Canadian Armed Forces), Her Excellency, The Right Honourable Mary May Simon, has compassionately & graciously contributed to the promotional & educational campaign, “Statements of Support for World Lymphedema Day” (SOS4WLD*), from Canada’s Capital - Ottawa.

[*SOS4WLD – “Statements of Support for World Lymphedema Day” is an annual promotion for “the cause” presented by “Lymphedema - Guerrilla Warrior General” (LymphoGWG). #SOS4WLD have been accomplished, Canada-wide, from all levels of government leadership & political stripes, plus from select LE-savvy overseas locales of note. This ‘S.O.S.’ is a double entendre for ‘statements of support’ while borrowing from the traditional call of marine urgency … the word “lymph” is derived from the Latin “lympha” meaning ‘connected to water’. More on the campaigns is available at FB page “Lymphedema - LE Nexus Canada”.]

#ThankYou / #Merci, Madam Governor General - on behalf of the Canadian contingent of the global “Lymphedema (#LE) Community”.
