Talking with others and getting needed support is key to living with lymphedema. Join us for sharing and educational presentations focused on  living with this challenging condition.  Meetings provide a safe and non-judgmental environment to give and receive support.

Please note that while we are holding our support groups online on Zoom that our Support Group Norms require participation by both video and audio unless you have been granted an exception by Cancer Lifeline in advance of the meeting. Please address questions or concerns to Pamela Krueger at pkrueger@cancerlifeline.org or (206) 832-1271.
