All american lymphedema walk

  • Can everyone please help get an all american Lymphedema walk  established-all american-we need to send letters to every governor in the us requesting for this walk that will be every year. I would like for it to be on June 18th. It would be for everyone having anything to do with lymphedema and we would ask for donations as well for those who need treatment and for research. Come on everyone lets get on our walking shoes and walk for lymphedema.

    Thank you
