Calgary Lymphedema Clinic Opening

Special thank you to MLA Len Webber who on March 6th had a members statement read into the record of parliamentary proceedings to proclaim on behalf of the Alberta Lymphedema Association that March 6th be "National Lymphedema Awareness Day".

The open house of the new Calgary Lymphedema Clinic was a great success. The team they have put together at this clinic are very knowledgeable and are all certified lymphedema therapists.

The clinic is located at the Sheldon Chumir Health Centre in downtown Calgary. They will treat patients living in Southern Alberta who have primary and non-cancer related lymphedema. The service will be open 4 days a week to serve patients 16 years and older.

Patients under the age of 16 will continue to be provided care for lymphedema at the Alberta Childrens Hospital.

Southern Alberta patients who have lymphedema as a result of cancer or its treatment will continue receiving care through the Tom Baker Cancer Centres Rehab and Lymphedema Program at the Richmond Road Clinic.

AHS has been working with the Alberta Lymphedema Association on the development of Calgary Zone services for these patients and are part of the patient advisory team.

ALA would like to personally thank Dianne and Irving Kipnes for their very generous donation of 5 million dollars to the University of Calgary to be used for lymphedema research and education. This donation will make such a huge difference in the lives of lymphedema patients.
