The Fall Conference is going Virtual!!!

We would like to thank everyone who supports our efforts to bring education and create awareness of lymphatic disease.  Our annual conference is always the highlight of the year for all involved.  We enjoy bringing the community together, and bringing world renowned speakers to help us educate patients, therapists, physicians and others on this disease, at this time of year. 


However, as our support group is dedicated to promoting health and wellness, we must prioritize the health and safety of our community and the presenters, by making the conference completely virtual this year.  This is a brand new endeavor for us, but we are confident you will have an extraordinary virtual experience.  We were very hopeful to be able to see a vaccine and things getting back to normal, but for now we do not see that happening in time for the conference.  We want everyone to be safe and well, as many of our community are medically fragile and our community is our first priority. 


We will be offering our course at $50.00 per participant, and we hope this will make it possible for many to attend who would not normally be able to travel and attend the conference in person. You must register with a valid email address in order to receive the Zoom meeting instructions.


Help us to make this conference a great success by helping us spread the word.  Tell all your friends, colleagues and others you may know that have Lymphedema about the conference.  We hope to see everyone (on screen of course) for a great virtual conference this year.   


Joan White Board PIC Excitement is in the air! Since its founding around a dining room table in 1993, the Lighthouse Lymphedema Network (LLN) has grown to become one of the most recognized, respected and fast-growing non-profit organizations dedicated to promoting education and awareness about this disease we call “lymphedema” and provide assistance and support, not only for those afflicted with this disease but for their families, friends and even their healthcare providers.

With the launch of our new look and website, we hope those who come here will find the information needed to expand their knowledge and understanding of this disease.

The LLN has many goals and our mission is constantly expanding.


Thank you to everyone who has made the LLN a success.  From the Volunteers who give of their time and resources to the Physicians and Therapists who are willing to learn more about this disease, we couldn't do it without you.  From the one time supporters to the yearly supporters, every dollar counts and we couldn't do it without you.  From the vendors who support our events and bring their knowledge of products to the public and therapists, we couldn't do it without you.  We are so thankful for everyone's continued support, enthusiasm, dedication and passion that makes LLN such a success. 25 years ago this did not seem like a possiblity, but with the support we receive from volunteers and donors year after year, we are able to continue our bandages and garments fund, and help to educate and bring awareness of lymphatic disease to the forefront. As we move forward into another year, we are praying for another prosperous year.

It’s The Journey, Inc., Producer of the Atlanta 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer,
Announces Recipients of its 2018 Grants


It’s The Journey, Inc. – producer of the Georgia 2-Day Walk for Breast Cancer – is a local organization founded 15 years ago by a breast cancer survivor, Randi Passoff.  When the Avon 3-Day Breast Cancer Walk pulled out of Atlanta in 2002, Randi, a long time walker, decided that Atlanta needed a fundraising event wherein all of the funds stayed local to support Georgia breast cancer patients and breast health programs. 



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.
