Each year the British Lymphology Society (BLS) and the Lymphoedema Support Network (LSN) use Lymphoedema Awareness Week and World Lymphedema Day to bring the condition to the attention of the general public and healthcare professionals.

This year the event was bigger and better than ever, with stars of sport, screen and stage as well as a whole host of others donning odd socks, holding awareness events or raising money to support us.

We are particularly grateful to Gemma Levine who took some amazing photographs for our 'Sock it' campaign and to all those living with or affected by the condition for their enthusiasm. You can view the Sock it photo galleries on the links above.

We also produced some easy-read information on the condition and some info for healthcare professionals who do not work in the field of lymphoedema and these may still be of interest to you, so can be downloaded below.

The week may be over for 2018 but the fight to raise awareness goes on!!
