Deb Cozzone, 2008 Co-Volunteer of the Year

Our second “Volunteer of the Year” has been part of the LLN for many years. In fact, we all feel like her twins grandparents. When you have Lymphedema and want to be a parent, there are so many options to consider. I can still see Deb at our first Lymphedema Awareness celebration very pregnant for twins, Justin and Kyle. What a loving journey it has been for Deb and her husband, Mike.

Where do I begin to tell you why Deb is so deserving of this recognition. She has served as chair of our silent auctions, has cooked for us at one of our meetings and makes the name tags for our annual conference. Deb is the administrator of our Bandages and Garment Fund. This fund was established in 2004 to help needy patients who have no medical coverage for garments, which we all know most insurance companies plus Medicare do not cover. To date, this fund has helped over 85 needy patients.

With appreciation and love, we recognize Deb Cozzone as our “Volunteer of the Year”
