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.
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, "Attend our events, become a spokesperson for lymphedema and volunteer". 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!
The Lighthouse Lymphedema Network is a 501 (C) (3) organization of individuals who are lymphedema patients, or who have an interest in lymphedema. Our goal is to educate, promote awareness, and provide support for lymphedema patients, the medical community, family and caregivers, insurance companies, the general public, and lymphedema support groups.
