Lymphedema Awareness Day - info stands and presentations at UZ Gent

Poster invitation

LymphAday, or Lymphedema Awareness Day, is a patient-driven awareness day on lymphedema. Lymphedema is a chronic disease which is often the result of specific cancer treatment (e.g. for breast and prostate cancer) and can have a severe impact on daily life for patients.

The main organizer of the LympADay campaign is Karine Tollenaere, who is also lymphedema patient. In collaboration with 'Beautiful after Breast Cancer' and UZ Gent, the aim is to create more awareness on the disease, by organizing an open info day (in Dutch) at UZ Gent for patients and family.
