Lynn Fass, patient educator and NWLC Board President shared a brief synopsis of the retreat: Julie and I feel the Retreat was a huge success. Many expressed that it was “life changing”. It brought tears to my eyes when I sat in the Harmony Hill Circle of 23 women living with lymphedema. What an awesome support group! We open and close the Retreat by all sitting in a circle. A heart shaped rock is passed around, and each participant is asked to express what they are feeling in their heart at that moment with one word. My word was “connection”. At the Retreat we all connected personally to one another. But more then that, we connected people through the support and resources of therapists, physicians, garment fitters, and the medical community.
