The Marilyn Westbrook Garment Fund (MWGF) has been a huge gift to many of our lymphedema patients.
Since May, 2008 the fund has alleviated suffering and improved the quality of life for both young and old who are affected by lymphedema. It was Marilyn Westbrook's wish to ensure that no other person with lymphedema would have to suffer as she did prior to her death. Fueled by this simple yet beautiful request, many have answered Marilyn's wish and today we have changed many lymphedema patients’ lives with the fund. Our hope is to be able to reach out to many more patients, with the ultimate goal of offering coverage for LE treatment.
You can help!
