Top Lymphedema Video on Youtube

Best Lymphedema Video on YouTube 

by Kathleen Lisson

I had the pleasure of speaking with Peggy of Portraits by Peggy, one of the best lymphedema video producers (in my opinion) on YouTube. Peggy is a photographer and helps models, actors and entrepreneurs in San Diego and Los Angeles. She also has lower extremity lymphedema in her leg which was NOT caused by primary lymphedema or removing lymph nodes or radiation after a cancer diagnosis.

This is one of the reasons I think her videos are the best on YouTube - they are hopefully increasing awareness that sometimes lymphedema can happen without cancer treatment or genetics to blame. It took Peggy YEARS to get a proper diagnosis.
