$14,397 of $20,000 goal

Raised by 182 people in 2 months
Lymphedema Advocacy Group Board Members will walk over 700 MILES from Feb 1st to the 14th in support of the Lymphedema Treatment Act!  

Why Are We Fundraising?

Because passage of the Lymphedema Treatment Act is critical to help millions suffering from this treatable disease gain access to the MOST BASIC level of care!

The Lymphedema Treatment Act currently boasts over 300 critical cosponsors (a supramajority) in the House and just over 50 (a majority) in the Senate! The bill's support is broad based and bipartisan but we need your help to propel us onward to passage! 

A big part of crossing that finish line involves  approximately one hundred volunteers from across the country traveling to Washington, D.C. in March for an event known as "Lymphedema Lobby Days" . Typically, our bill gains dozens of new cosponsors following Lobby Days, but hosting this event comes with a hefty price tag!
