Marilyn Westbrook Garment Fund (MWGF)
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. Every year, the Marilyn Westbrook Garment Fund (MWGF) helps many patients who do not have the means to buy their own garments. The garments give our patients the hope that they need to continue to live and make positive steps in their lives.
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 and approval process. Updates we plan to implement include a paperless application submission and improved status updates and communications.
During the review and transition to our new process will we need to place a temporary hold on new applications. Our tentative timeframe to resume accepting applications is March 2018.
