The Importance of Community Support for Lipedema

  • Today, I have an excerpt from an interview with Rebecca Griffeth from our Lipedema Worldwide Summit that was held in 2016.
  • Rebecca is a lipedema lady from the US who was thrilled to suddenly find her tribe when she went to the 1st International Symposium on Lipedema in NYC in 2015.
  • In this excerpt, she shares how she was distraught with the sudden onset of lipedema a year prior and how she learned to advocate for herself with the support of her family and various support groups.
