Commack, NY

Hello All - I was diagnosed (after much uncertainty) with lymphedema in my right leg at the age of 16. Doctors rarely had answers and told me there was nothing I could do but maintain it. A wonderful rep from Tactile actually gave a great lead- to Doctor Dean at OSU, who has advocated for me and helped me tremendously. Now, I have found Dr. Corinne Becker in Paris and am going for a Lymph Node Transplant surgery in Paris. Dr. Becker feels very hopeful this surgery will be a game-changer for me. You can read more about my story on the GoFundMe page my siblings put together for me: https://www.gofundme.com/f/a-leg-up-on-kristy039s-lymphedema?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cp+share-sheet

Never take no for an answer, and don't let doctors discourage you! You must fight and push, research independently and ask as many questions as you can! Stay positive, hopeful and proactive! xoxo Kristy
