Lymphedema Lobby Days

Lymphedema Lobby Days provides an opportunity to meet members of Congress and advocate for the Lymphedema Treatment Act. The event is taking place this year from March 4th-6th in Washington D.C. Last year over 70 country wide lymphedema patients appeared to speak up about the cause.
Below is a direct quote from the Lymphedema Treatment Act website about the impact of this event:
Attending Lymphedema Lobby Days is one of the most rewarding things I have done. It was awesome to see so many people from all over come together to make a difference. Experiencing the judicial process was an eye-opener as well. I am so glad I came. ~Tonya
Unfortunately, it is too late to register for this event for this year. However, even though you cannot make the trip to D.C. you can still make a difference. Contact your local representative to request a meeting regarding insurance coverage for these necessary lymphedema compression garments. 
Instructions for setting up a meeting are provided in the link below:
