March is Lymphoedema Awareness Month

After surgery and/or radiotherapy for the treatment of breast or gynaecological cancer, the lymphatic system may be damaged and there is a risk of developing lymphoedema. Learn about what lymphoedema is, early warning signs, how to minimise the risk of developing lymphoedema and what to do if it develops.  The impact of exercise and massage, as well as where to find assistance will also be covered.  Our presenter Helen Eason, Physiotherapist is an accredited lymphoedema practitioner with 20 years experience in this field.

If you attend in person, please join us at 11.30am for a cuppa and to view resources relevant to lymphoedema. You can also speak with Counterpart volunteers who are living with lymphoedema.
