It’s time to fundraise again!

June 21, 2015

Next Sunday (June 28), it will be a year since I held my bridal shower fundraiser for the 5th annual Walk for Lymphedema in NYC. Since then, I’ve been honored to be a charter member of the NY State Chapter of the Lymphatic Education & Research Network, which sponsors the Walk. We’ve been hard at work behind the scenes to bring patients of lymphedema and other lymphatic diseases resources and a chapter where they can find others who understand their struggles.

I’m sad this year because my husband, Patrick, and I cannot swing the cost of attending the Walk in person on Sept. 19. Our hearts will be there with the hundreds who will once again cross the Brooklyn Bridge to raise awareness about lymphatic diseases and money for much-needed research. We will, however, be there in spirit, as we are doing our virtual walk. We’ve created the team SwellingWithHope to do our part to raise money and to remind our family and friends that this disease could hit anyone, especially those who have surgery or treatment that involve the removal of lymph nodes.

Again, thank you so much for your support!
