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 â€œlymphedemaâ€ 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.
It seems as soon as one project is completed, another slips into its place. The LLN Board of Directors is very dedicated to serving those in the world of lymphatics and lymphatic disorders. We have no paid staff; only patients, medical professionals and community volunteers who donate their time and energy to keep our wonderful organization moving in a positive direction.
When asked how best to serve the LLN, I always say, â€œAttend our events, become a spokesperson for lymphedema and volunteer.â€
Bring us your concerns and we will help you! Bring us your ideas and we will work to make them happen! In the end, HELP US! HELP OTHERS!
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.
The Lymphedema Treatment Act is a federal bill that will improve insurance coverage for the medically necessary, doctor-prescribed compression supplies that are the cornerstone of lymphedema treatment.
