Kayden’s Fund

Posted on by Sam

Last post, we talked about the effects stress can have on the body and how a solid emotional and social support base can help curb those effects. One of the greatest things about the lymphedema community is how well this is understood. There is no shortage of compassionate people out there who are willing to help in any way they can.

Earlier this month, we found out about Kayden, a 2 1/2 year old boy who was diagnosed with congenital lymphedema that affects the entire left side of his body. His family has been advised to seek treatment for Kayden at the Foeldi clinic in Germany. Professor Ethel Foeldi, who saw Kayden in Colorado, is graciously assisting with the cost of treatment. In order to help further, Guenter Klose, Executive Director of Klose Training and Consulting, has started a fund in Kayden’s name to help pay for garments and other necessary medical supplies not covered by insurance that Kayden’s family will need as he gets older.

We were extremely moved by the outpouring of support for Kayden from the community and have pledged to provide him with whatever garments he’ll need from us in the future. If you’d like to learn how to make a donation, please see Klose Training’s webpage.
