Do you have lymphoedema?

Would you like to learn more about the condition and meet others who are also living with lymphoedema?

The Berkshire Lymphoedema Support group started in 2014 and organises regular meetings at venues across Berkshire. Each meeting has a theme, at some meetings there will be a guest speaker or a discussion of some aspect of Lymphoedema, sometimes the focus is on other topics. Sometimes it may be a social event, there are always people willing to share their story of to listen to yours. Refreshments are provided and there is often a raffle to help raise funds for the group. At least one of the Sue Ryder Lymphoedema team aim to attend each meeting. You and a partner are most welcome to join any of the meetings.

Details are available at the Sue Ryder Lymphoedma clinics or can be sent or emailed to you, for further information or to arrange a lift to one of our meeings
