KLF Logo
Katie’s Lymphoedema Fund was set up to support The Royal Marsden Cancer Charity in memory of Katie Wohlrab Oliver (1966 – 2001).
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.

Fundraising – What’s Next

The TAFF TRAIL Challenge. 2016 would have seen Katie turning 50.  So we’re planning to gather 50 (or so) ‘willing’ walkers to walk from Brecon to Cardiff Bay over 2 days at the end of July 2016 (meet Thursday 28th evening, walk Fri 29th and Sat 30th, collapse and celebrate Sat evening in Cardiff with fellow walkers, friends and family).  Take a look at the Taff Trail page for more information.  Lots to be ironed out yet but if you are interested in hearing more about this, please email emma@maziak.co.uk.
