Provides contact, information, education and support for those with the condition, as well as raising awareness of lymphoedema. Full membership costs £15.00 per person.  Associate membership costs £7.50.  Contact Mrs. Helena Parris on 07797 764877.

The condition

The condition causes chronic swelling of the body, mostly in the arms and legs, due to the accumulation of lymph fluids when the body's natural drainage system malfunctions. This may occur following cancer treatment or after an infection.

Treatment

A weekly clinic runs at Island Medical Centre, 14 Gloucester Street, St. Helier,
