Katie’s Lymphoedema Fund was set up to support The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity in memory of Pat Wohlrab’s daughter Katie.
The Fund aims to train NHS practitioners in the management and treatment of Lymphoedema, thus increasing the availability of therapists which is still extremely limited. The Fund will provide sponsored places on training programmes run at The Royal Marsden School of Cancer Nursing and Rehabilitation in London.
Do you work within the NHS and are looking to add lymphoedema management to your skills? If so, click here to see the Royal Marsden School of Cancer Nursing and Rehabilitation courses that you might be able to attend, sponsored by Katie’s Lymphoedema Fund.
We continue to support a variety of practitioners and since our inception in 2004, the breakdown of roles we have funded has been as follows:
- Nurses 63%
- Physiotherapists 21%
- General therapists 7%
- Complementary therapists 3%
- Occupational therapists 3%
- Other 3%
We’re delighted to announce that since 2004 when we started out we have raised almost £120,000 – only possible with your support of course! THANK YOU!
