LymphLinks

The last issue of LymphLinks was Vol. 29, No. 2 Diagnosis Procedures in Lymphedema, the next issue is currently under editorial review and is planned to be mailed in the upcoming weeks.

Marilyn Westbrook Garment Fund

Since its inception, the Marilyn Westbrook Garment Fund has provided compression garments to more than 3,000 patients with financial need. It would not be possible without the generous support from our volunteers and industry partners.

With the overwhelming and increasing need that exist within the lymphedema community, the number of applications submitted to the MWGF has tripled. In order to continue to meet the needs of our therapists and patients, we are reviewing and updating the MWGF application process. Updates planned include an online application submission system with improved status updates and communications.

During the review and transition to the new process will we need to place a temporary hold on accepting new applications. If you have any questions regarding applications already submitted please e-mail nlngarmentfund [at] lymphnet.org. We anticipate the new system being in place August 1, 2017.

NLN Store

Sales of NLN merchandise, such as alert bracelets, will be moved to Amazon Marketplace. As we set up our Amazon site, we will suspend sales through our current system. Orders already placed are being processed and shipped.
