LYMPHOEDEMA RESOURCES IRELAND

Lymphedema Resources in Ireland

With a name like Pat O'Connor, I just finally had to create a lymphedema resource guide for Ireland. In this section you will find information and links to support groups, cancer information, wound care and treatment, online medical information sources, medical vendors and therapists.

I was born in 1952 with hereditary lymphedema (Milroy's) and have been a multiple lymphoma survivor having been first diagnosed in 1995.

I can be contacted at:

Lymphatic Disorders Support Group @ Yahoo Groups

While we have a number of support groups for lymphedema... there is nothing out there for other lymphatic disorders. Because we have one of the most comprehensive information sites on all lymphatic disorders, I thought perhaps, it is time that one be offered.

syndrome, ptosis syndrome, plus many more. Extensive database of information available through sister site Lymphedema People.
