Orange Health Services is in desperate need of help to provide specialist help for incurable Lymphedema. Please sign this petition.

Lymphedema occurs when the lymph system is damaged or blocked. Fluid builds up in soft body tissues and causes swelling. It is a common problem that may be caused by cancer and cancer treatment. Lymphedema usually affects an arm or leg, but it can also affect other parts of the body. Lymphedema can cause long-term physical, psychological, and social problems for patients.

As a breast cancer survivor, I have suffered from lymphedema, the pain was immense. I'm calling upon our Community to please place same pressure in funding a treatment opportunity here where we have such an incredible Oncology department.

For lucky survivors of cancer the journey does not end when the treatment as most perceive is complete. It goes on and there are so many factors that have to be dealt with. Orange is the only regional facility that has no provision to support this treatment.
