About

The National Lymphedema Network (NLN) is an internationally recognized non-profit organization founded in 1988 to provide education and guidance to lymphedema patients, healthcare professionals, and the general public by disseminating information about risk reduction and the management of primary and secondary lymphedema.

The NLN is supported by tax-deductible donations and is a driving force behind the movement in the US to standardize quality treatment for lymphedema patients nationwide. In addition, the NLN supports research into the causes and possible alternative treatments for this often incapacitating, long-neglected condition.
