“Where flowers bloom, so does hope.” – Ladybird Johnson.  As the video illustrates, access to treatment is the difference between tragic stories of Adversity and amazing stories of Hope.  Your donation gives the gift of hope to Lymphedema patients, who will have improved access to care through passage of the Lymphedema Treatment Act.


While we are a grassroots volunteer organization, your donations fund our yearly operating expenses, including our website, the printing of educational materials, and most significantly, all our advocacy tools and events that make it easy for constituents to effectively engage with their congressional offices. Donations also fund groundbreaking work like the savings estimate we commissioned Avalere Health to produce, which is linked to below. This first-of-its-kind analysis estimates how many healthcare dollars could be saved when lymphedema patients have the treatment supplies needed to better manage this chronic condition and prevent complications and hospitalizations.  


For perspective, there are thousands of bills put in front of Congress in every 2 year session.  Only a small percentage are enacted into federal law.  Most bills do not become law and most never even receive a vote.  For those that do become law, the average duration from initial introduction to passage is 11 years.

We have made tremendous progress since the Lymphedema Treatment Act (LTA) was first introduced in 2010.  The bill has gained more cosponsors in each new session of Congress, culminating in it being the most supported healthcare bill for the last three cycles of Congress. During the last session of Congress, the LTA was passed in the House, meaning we are extremely well-positioned, and with continued hard work hope to see the bill signed into law during this, the 117th Congress!  

PLEASE DONATE: Simply click the "DONATE NOW" button to make a secure online donation.  Past donations have ranged from $10 to $1000 - please know any donation amount is greatly appreciated.

Note: If you’d feel more comfortable donating by check, you can make checks payable to The Lymphedema Advocacy Group and mail them to: The Lymphedema Advocacy Group, PO Box 1682, Carrboro, NC 27510.


The Lymphedema Treatment Act (LTA) is a federal bill that will improve insurance coverage for the medically necessary, doctor-prescribed compression supplies that are the cornerstone of lymphedema treatment.
