Erin Child | Brylan’s Feat Foundation | Pediatric Lymphedema Support
I am reaching out to ask for your help in supporting Brylan’s Feat Foundation, the first and only nonprofit in the world specific to pediatric lymphedema. I have decided to help raise funds by creating my own team, Team Erin & Adam Child, for their Love For Lymphedema Virtual Fundraiser and would love for you to join the challenge and donate. Your generous contribution not only helps a worthy cause, but you could win some fantastic raffle prizes, including the new iPad Air. It’s a win, win! Below is a more information about lymphedema and this amazing organization.
What is pediatric lymphedema?
Lymphedema is the painful, debilitating, and chronic swelling of parts of the body where the lymphatic system is compromised due to developmental abnormality or damage/ trauma (such as cancer treatment). Although there is currently no cure for lymphedema, there are rather costly treatment options to help manage and fight the disease. Unfortunately, these treatments are often not covered by medical insurers. When children are left untreated, they are more susceptible to life threatening/recurrent infections, psychological issues, skin complications, orthopedic problems, and eventual disability.
Brylan’s Feat Foundation’s mission is to assist in providing necessary treatment to pediatric lymphedema patients who are in need, help raise awareness, and promote education of this disease. Not only does Brylan’s Feat Foundation provide financial assistance, customized garments, bandaging supplies, emotional support, and virtual therapy sessions, they also started the only summer camp for children with lymphedema called, Camp Watchme, which is free to one child and one parent/caregiver as first time participants.
