It is Lymphoedema Awareness Week in the Uk and to help raise awareness and money the Lymphoedema Support Network (LSN) decided on a campaign called ‘Sock it to Lymphoedema’.
The idea is to get friends and family to show their support by wearing odd socks or gloves for a day and making a donation to the LSN. If they are asked why they have odd socks on then they could say ‘I am CHOOSING to wear different socks/gloves today- people with lymphoedema don’t have that choice’. To donate text LSNS14 together with how much you wish to donate to 70070.
Here are Max and Lucia in their odd socks! Lucia never wears socks as she is always in her compression tights, plus it is extremely difficult to find socks she can wear even for a short time as the elastic is too tight and leaves marks around her legs. So she was really excited to be wearing socks and didn’t want to take them off! Max thought it was hilarious!
Always good to have a wee bit of fun while raising money for a good cause.
