Great News! We've reached our $20,000 goal! While new donations will not be matched by our incredible Angel Donor, we are grateful for any additional contributions. Even if we succeed in passing this bill by the end of this year, there will be more work to do next year as we work through the implementation process.
WHY ARE WE FUNDRAISING?
Because it’s critically important that the 3-5 million men, women, and children living with Lymphedema in the U.S. have insurance coverage for the medically necessary compression garments and supplies that will enable them to safely manage this chronic condition at home.
In light of the pandemic, that need has become even more urgent!
Your support will enable us to do everything possible to get the federal Lymphedema Treatment Act bill signed into law during the final months of this Congress, so that lymphedema patients will have insurance coverage for their vital treatment supplies.
The Lymphedema Treatment has already been passed in the House of Representatives, in December of 2019, and now we need to get it through the Senate and signed into law before this Congress ends on January 3rd.
We need your help during this critical stage!
With overwhelming bipartisan support – over 380 House and 70 Senate cosponsors – this is the most supported healthcare bill in Congress and we are positioned well to make a push for final passage.
