Megan’s story

Megan a Lymphoedema patient at Arthur Rank Hospice Charity

Megan attends our Lymphoedema clinic every six months for treatment on her right leg. Megan who is now 13 years old first showed signs of Lymphoedema at six weeks old when she woke up one morning with a swollen leg – there is no history of Lymphoedema in Megan’s family not even in her two younger sisters.

When Megan tells her friends about having Lymphoedema the funniest thing she was asked was ‘Does your foot go green‘ – we can assure you Megan’s special leg (as Megan likes to call it) is not green and we think Megan is altogether a very special girl!
