All Australians Are Invited To Host An Iced Tea Party
During Lymphoedema Awareness Month
IT’S COOL TO BE KIND!
Register today to become a host of an Iced Tea Party during Lymphoedema Awareness Month (1 – 31 March), and help raise awareness of the disorder and vital funds to support education and research into lymphoedema.
Those most at risk of developing lymphoedema are patients and survivors of some cancers.
Up to 66% of prostate cancer survivors, and one in five survivors of a number of other cancers including breast, gynaecological, and melanoma suffering the distressing, debilitating and often heartbreaking effects of lymphoedema.
You’re invited to help raise awareness of lymphoedema by holding an Iced Tea Party to help people learn the early signs and symptoms, treatments, to increase understanding of this debilitating disorder, and raise vital funds to further research into the lymphoedema.
We’re also reminding sufferers of lymphoedema to keep affected areas cool to help manage the severity of the disorder, and we’re encouraging the community to understand that ITS COOL TO BE KIND to someone with lymphoedema, because this life-long disorder can be physically and emotionally distressing.
