Click to read "I love my Caregivers" by Wanda
"Wow. This easy to read book was a real “page turner.” When I first sat down to read it, I thought I would be able to get thru maybe 50 pages in one day, well, I was able to read all 236 pages in one day … and actually wished there were more stories to read. There were stories of inspiration and joy. There were stories that made me angry because folks had to suffer so much or so long before they got correct diagnosis and adequate therapy.
"This book is a must read for all persons touched by lymphedema: persons with lymphedema, significant others, care givers, and members of the medical team. It provides a refreshing and informative perspective that is most often overlooked; that being the person living with or at risk for developing lymphedema.
"In Voices of Lymphedema, the reader will find story after personal story of the difficulties and triumphs associated in living with primary and secondary lymphedema. This comprehensive book is very easy to read and provides practical advice that is readily applicable to everyday life.
Reviews from the National Lymphedema Network (NLN)
“This is a wonderful collection of stories and tips about how to handle lymphedema from people that deal with the problem everyday. It covers the life spectrum, from pregnancy to the elderly, male and female issues, upper and lower extremity lymphedema, genetic or secondary onset. There are applicable tips within the stories but the appendix lists a variety of useful summaries. The book includes precaution information, a glossary, books, websites and organizations that assist with lymphedema information all within 236 pages.
“You will find a passage to identify with and pick up tips to handle many situations in life. If you are a person new to lymphedema this book reassures you that you are not alone. If you are familiar with lymphedema it further expands knowledge about coping strategies to deal with lymphedema."
Julie Peterson, BSN, Breast cancer survivor with lymphedema
"Voices of Lymphedema" is easy to read and contains practical information that those living with lymphedema will find useful. As a lymphedema therapist, I found the personal stories of patients both touching and inspiring. The chapters on dealing with everyday issues and reimbursement contained information that I can put to use in my practice. I would recommend this book to anyone whose life has been touched by lymphedema.”
