Last September we had a request from Jan Aldridge at the Lymphedema Clinic at St Christopher’s in Orpington to see if we would fund 2 Lymphassist Homecare machines as there is currently a long wait for breast cancer patients to get their first appointment at the Lymphedema clinic. If the ladies can use these machines early enough they can help relieve the pain whilst waiting for their treatment to begin. We thought that this project was so important that we bought them 5 machines which they can now lend out to the patients to use twice weekly for at least 6 weeks.
Well at last Christine & Georgie went along to meet Jan and see the new machine and how it works. and also got to try it, we were both very impressed with the massaging.
