We would like thank all who gave to the LLN through Georgia Gives Day. Although the annual Georgia Gives Day is in November of every year, you can give here on our website directly. We appreciate everyone’s support of the Lighthouse Lymphedema Network.
When Joan White was diagnosed with Lymphedema back in the 1980’s, she had no one to turn to for help. She was faced with a debilitating illness that was progressively worsening, and there were no medical professionals available who could offer any assistance.
Out of Joan’s personal struggle was born The Lighthouse Lymphedema Network. She founded this nonprofit organization in 1993 with the mission to increase awareness and general knowledge of the condition known as Lymphedema so that others would not have to battle as she did to find assistance. Since this time, through the tireless efforts of volunteers, the LLN has continued to grow and gain recognition while educating and assisting patients, families, caregivers, the medical community, insurance companies, and other Lymphedema support groups.
