Garment Fund Testimonials

BiaCare is pleased to be part of the MWGF program.  We understand that there are very few compression garment options for those with chronic, disfiguring lymphedema.  We find it especially rewarding when we can help these people achieve a higher quality of life.

I recently went to a wedding. A friend I hadn't seen in over a year noticed that the size of my arm looked normal. She was amazed at the difference! Thank you so much for my sleeve, which I wear every day without fail!


In early spring of this year I found out I have lymphedema. I was referred to Rehab at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center where I started the treatments for my lymphedema. My friend has lymphedema also; her son found out about your organization and how you help people like me get the permanent garments, because of low income. I am very happy with my garments and for you helping me get them, otherwise I would have went through the treatments for nothing. I am very grateful.

I wanted to thank everyone from the Maryland Westbrook Garment Fund for all of your help in getting me the garment that I needed to help me keep my lymphedema under control. All of the staff that I have dealt with have been so friendly and helpful. If it was not for this fund, and the people who donate to it, I would not have been able to afford the garment that I so desperately need to help me sustain a better quality of life. The garment makes it easier and more comfortable to carry out my daily tasks, instead of always having to wrap my leg with the bandages and being so bulky.
