CONGRATULATIONS TO VERA NEWMAN, OUR VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR 2012!

As chairperson of the book committee, she gave us direction and led the committee to create our book The Puzzle: An Inside Glimpse of Lymphedema. This was a project that seemed to grow in intensity, but the committee was diligent in its quest to produce a book that the LLN would be proud of and that patients and professionals would be touched by the stories. The book was written to encourage, educate and inspire patients and loved ones, who can often feel isolated and uninformed. Not every story had a happy ending, yet there is hope. By sharing these stories with one another, we can learn from the struggles and successes that others have experienced and can help each other to live well with lymphedema. Vera serves on our Bellmere Gardens Luncheon, Tour and Plant committee, and our website committee.Vera, we are proud to honor you as our 2012 Volunteer of the Year!
