What is Lymphoedema?

Lymphoedema is a condition in which part of the body, such as the arm or the leg, begins to swell. It can occur when some, or all, of the lymph nodes in a part of the body have been removed or treated with radiotherapy.

Katie's Lymphoedema Fund was set up to support The Royal Marsden Cancer Campaign in memory of Pat Wohlrab’s daughter Katie. The Fund aims to increase the availability of therapists specially trained to treat Lymphoedema. The Fund will provide sponsored places on training programmes run at The Royal Marsden School of Cancer Nursing and Rehabilitation in London.
