Story

Following Win passing away at the age of 98 on 6/2/17, this page is an opportunity for family and friends of Win Clement to donate to a charity supporting people with Lymphoedema - a condition which Win suffered from.

Lymphoedema is a swelling that develops as a result of an impaired lymphatic system. This may be as a result of the lymphatic system not developing properly or through damage or trauma. It can affect any part of the body but is most commonly seen in an arm or a leg. Although thought to be relatively uncommon, a recent study has estimated that at least 240,000 people in the UK may be affected by this condition.

The Lymphoedema Support Network's aims are:
To provide support for people with lymphoedema
To provide information about lymphoedema and its treatment
To work towards the availability of better national resources for lymphoedema treatment
To maintain contact with healthcare professionals working in lymphoedema management
To promote a network of support groups throughout the UK for people with lymphoedema
