SHRINERS RESOURCES FOR CHILDREN

The Shriners have a wonderful network of hospitals specifically for children and we have had many good reports from parents of lymphedema children about their services.

While updating this page, I took a look at the figures on how many patients they helped and found this info from 2006, it is truly amazing.: 

In 2006, Shriners Hospitals approved 38,984 new patient applications, attended to the needs of 128,578 patients and provided the following:

There are many of us who don't have children needing medical help, but that doesn't mean we can't also support the Shriners Hospital Network.
