We hope you are enjoying the start to summer. We wanted to remind everyone that June is
Lipedema Awareness Month and to kick it off we have some exciting things to share with you. 270 Surgeons, doctors, nurses, therapists, patients, friends and family joined us in April for the conference. Watch the speakers
here. Conference photos are
here. And for a chuckle, check out the photo booth
here. If you have any photos from the conference that you want to share,
click here and you can upload them!
Uncovered and Unashamed!
Many of our sisters have allowed themselves to be photographed in various stages of lipedema and DD in order to help bring awareness to these debilitating disorders. With the help of these brave women, fat disorders like these may become more recognizable, not only to the patients, but also to the medical community. Throughout the month of June we will be showcasing one person's photos daily on our Facebook page; be sure to check them out and please share them on Facebook to help spread the word, and Tweet them using #FDRS2016!
