Lymphedema

Lymphedema causes chronic swelling due to trauma or blockage in the lymph nodes which makes it difficult for the lymphatic fluid to drain properly. Left untreated, this disease can cause decreased functionality in the affected extremity, pose an increased risk for infections, cause disability and even, in the most extreme cases, be fatal.

About

Ninjas Fighting Lymphedema Foundation is a 501 (c) 3 founded by a lymphedema patient and spokesperson Amy Rivera. Amy was born with primary lymphedema but was misdiagnosed for over 30 years, leaving her disabled and isolated. She truly thought she was the only one who was suffering in silence. Amy realized that this community needed a voice and she established this foundation with clear goals in mind. 

NFLF is committed to helping patients, schools, hospitals, other nonprofits, and entire communities to better understand the lymphedema epidemic and how they can take a more active role in creating awareness.
