A Voice For Lymphedema    




March 6th Cheque Presentation

On March 6, the Alberta Lymphedema Association presented a cheque for more than $29,000 to the Calgary Health Trust to help ensure patients who use Calgary Ambulatory Lymphedema Services (CALS) will have access to care that will improve their quality of life.

What Is Lymphedema

Lymphedema is an accumulation of lymphatic fluid in the interstitial tissue that causes swelling, most often in the arm(s) and/or leg(s), and occasionally in other parts of the body. Lymphedema can develop when lymphatic vessels are missing or impaired (primary), or when lymph vessels are damaged or lymph nodes removed (secondary).
