I’m excited that the Peace Bridge Commission has found the cause of lymphedema worthy enough to light up the bridge in teal for World Lymphedema Day on March 6, 2018! I was equally pleased that the Lymphatic Education & Research Network found inspiration in my endeavor and has since been seeking to do the same with the Empire State Building. I’ve put a call out to others with lymphedema across New York state to see which structures in their areas are regularly all aglow and to request that they be awash in teal for World Lymphedema Day! πŸ™‚ Next month, I’m going to work on Niagara Falls, Buffalo City Hall, Buffalo’s Electric Tower, and more in WNY. Maybe if we get enough teal coverage across the state, lymphedema will get more media coverage!

The Walk for Lymphedema, sponsored by the Lymphatic Education & Research Network, is fast approaching! This year, instead of begging our family and friends for more money, we are holding a huge refundable bottle/can drive at our home and businesses, and any money we make from returning said bottles and cans will be donated to The Walk under team “What the Swell?!” πŸ™‚ If you want to participate in The Walk, either in person or through a virtual walk, sign up at https://www.crowdrise.com/2017-ny-walk-to-fight-lymphedema-and-lymphatic-diseases1. You also can donate to other walkers there!
