Team Adem makes another donation to Bloomhill Cancer Care

This week on behalf of Team Adem, Lu proudly 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. Pictured receiving the Electrode Pads is Bloomhill  lymphedema Therapist nurse Kerryn.
