Lymph Link Review
From Lymph Link, the NLN newsletter, April 2006
This book is a hands-on guide that is intended not just for patients who have lymphedema, but also for family and friends, parents who have children with lymphedema, medical professionals, and psychotherapists. This book is an excellent resource that will give us all tools we can use to bridge the gap between the physical and emotional- and truly treat the “whole person.”
