Lymphedema can affect anyone, especially those who have survived breast cancer and other cancers. Here is an interesting article from NIH Medline Plus magazine in the Fall of 2016, featuring an interview with Kathy Bates – actress and director, on her experience with Lymphedema after a double mastectomy and the importance of getting treatment. Although it’s an older article, it is still relevant. It’s a short read that has wonderful insight to it. Kathy continues to be an active advocate for Lymphedema and is going to speak at the Lymphedema Symposium in Boston, MA November 2-3, 2018.
