Welcome To The Lighthouse

Lymphedema Network

The LLN was presented with a check for the Bandages and Garments Fund at the It's The Journey Gala on March 18. Held at theITJ Gala Aquarium, this annual fund raiser and gala culminates in the presentation of grants to the selected non-profits serving the Breast Cancer Community throughout Georgia. LLN's Bandages and Garments Fund received the first installment of $10,000 which will be used to purchase the necessary bandages and garments for uninsured patients who have lymphedema as a result of breast cancer. The Bandages and Garments Fund also assists patients who suffer from lymphedema that is NOT related to breast cancer, but the ITJ grant monies are used specifically for breast cancer survivors. Any patient with lymphedema who is interested in applying for assistance should contact their Certified Lymphedema Therapist (CLT) for more information. CLTs who are interested in more information about the Bandages and Garments Fund should contact Janie Smith at This email address is being protected from spambots.
