March is Lymphoedema Awareness Month (1 – 31 March)
The Australasian Lymphology Association (ALA) is inviting your support to generate awareness of the early signs and symptoms of Lymphoedema among high risk groups, and encouraging a deeper understanding and empathy for sufferers of Lymphoedema throughout the community.
We are supporting a fundraising and awareness initiative inviting individuals, businesses and healthcare workers to raise awareness about Lymphoedema by hosting an Iced Tea Party to support education and vital research into Lymphoedema.

“IT’S COOL TO BE KIND”
We’re reminding sufferers of Lymphoedema to keep affected areas cool to help manage the disorder, and we’re encouraging the community to understand that It’s Cool to be Kind to someone with Lymphoedema.
