“The telephone Support line was invaluable to me when I was first diagnosed and scared – a lifeline” Ms D, Ilford
For 25 years the LSN has been there to provide information and support to those living with or affected by lymphoedema/chronic oedema. Although we are now an award winning charity we are proud still to be run by people with lymphoedema for people with lymphoedema and we firmly believe that Lymphoedema Matters.

“The LSN has made more difference to patient care for lymphoedema than anything Health Professionals and the NHS has done” GlaxoSmithKline IMPACT award judges when announcing the LSN as an IMPACT award winner
As a small charity that receives no funding from government or the NHS we are totally dependent on our supporters to fund our work and are proud of what we have achieved using our limited resources. Just 17p in every pound we make is used to run the organisation meaning we can use 83% of the money raised directly to support those who need us, raise awareness of lymphoedema and provide information for Health Care Professionals.

“I am both humbled and challenged by the support we receive from those we help. Humbled that individuals feel we are worthy of the effort and thought it takes to run a marathon, hold a cake sale, ask for donations instead of birthday gifts or even remember us in their will and challenged to ensure that year on year we honour that thought and effort by doing all we can to ensure that we continue to provide what those living with or affected by lymphoedema need.” Karen Friett – LSN Chief Executive
