Actress Kathy Bates, Lymphedema Spokesperson

Kathy BatesMarch is Lymphedema Awareness Month so I was absolutely thrilled to see that Oscar-winning actress, Kathy Bates, is a spokesperson for Lymphedema.  Ms. Bates had breast cancer with a double mastectomy with many lymph nodes removed.  As a result, she has Lymphedema in both arms.   Her recent February, 2015 appearance on the television show, “The Doctors”, was extremely informative.  Plus, the doctors added much to the discussion as did Ms. Bates own Lymphedema Physician.  As a fellow Lymphedema sufferer, I am so happy she is informing the public of this condition and reaching out to women who may have Lymphedema but have not gotten proper treatment!

Please watch this educational video!  It is worth the time to do so!
