I am overjoyed to see that my congressman, US Representative Brad Wenstrup signed on in support of the Lymphedema Treatment Act. Last summer I met with Rep. Wenstrup’s staff member, and then I had the opportunity to speak with Rep Wenstrup personally during a “Coffee with Your Congressman” event. As a podiatrist, Dr. Wenstrup was familiar with lymphedema and was very receptive to my story and my request for his support of the bill.
It feels very empowering to see the results of my advocacy efforts, I have shared my story on the Lymphedema Treatment Act website and utilized the Legislative Action Center to make initial contact with my representatives. However, this is just one small step in getting this legislation passed. Please you if have not already done so, contact your representative and ask for their support of HR 3877 Lymphedema Treatment Act.
Thank you Congressman Wenstrup!
