Team adem continues to help patients affected by lymphedema

Lu on behalf of Team Adem recently donated another $500 of electrode pads that are needed to run the Lymphedema L- Dex machine at Bloomhill Cancer Care. Lymphedema can occur after cancer treatment when lymph nodes are removed from the body by surgery or damaged by radiotherapy. This machine is used to detect lymphedema by measuring lymph fluid changes in the affected area. If an increase in fluid is detected, early intervention can then be started, which will hopefully minimise the debilitating effects Lymphedema can potentially cause.
